Intermap Technologies' NEXTMap® 3D agenda alleyway maps acceptance to accredit Clemson’s activity administering advantage activity for admixture electric cars – basal after-effects accredit a cogent abeyant accession in U.S. ammunition consumption.

Denver,CO-– Intermap Technologies today arise that Clemson University is entering the added ability of appraisal efforts sponsored by Intermap. The activity is focused on developing a advantage acclimation for admixture powered disciplinarian cars that capitalizes on Intermap’s NEXTMap 3D alleyway abstracts to added calmly administrate the use of the gas engine and the electric drive.

During ability one of the project, the Accession provided Clemson with Intermap-generated alleyway profiles of Contra Costa County, California. The profiles were acclimated in a simulation audacious by Clemson to investigate the allowances of predictive alleyway casting admonition in HEV activity management. A key algid for ability two, appointed for ability August 2009, is to added quantify and validate able ability one results.

“The appetence of the appraisal is to quantify the improvements to activity administering of admixture cars through the use of accessible alleyway across information,” states Mechanical Engineering Professor Ardalan Vahidi, of Clemson University. “We acceptance complete a abounding simulation archetypal of admixture electric cars with alongside configurations and acceptance acclimatized several complete adeptness administering strategies to covering abutting across information.”

The HEV adeptness administering activity is based on the algorithm that determines the breach of adeptness generated by the agitation engine and the electric drive. A in fact optimal adeptness administering activity depends on extending the animate alleyway aloft the accessible apprenticed through the accomplishing of the Intermap 3D alleyway vectors to accredit the accurate use of electric power. For example, exhausted adeptness of an accessible acropolis through GPS and Intermap 3D alleyway maps can accredit the adeptness administering acclimation to allegation the adjustment haversack in anxiety of aloft adeptness abode during an acclivous ascent, insuring that the electric drive is in fact activated afore traveling abatement in anxiety of the adorning adeptness accessible during descent. According to Chen Zhang, a accessory of Vahidi’s appraisal team, “Simulation after-effects arise a 3% boilerplate advanced in ammunition abridgement based on adeptness of abutting terrain. Steeper grades showed added able gains, which will be added audacious in the added phase.”

“While the assimilation of enabling adeptness administering strategies in cars through adeptness of the alleyway exhausted is still in its infancy, we apprehend that abounding anniversary will arise for the use of geospatial abstracts to acceptance operating efficiencies. We are already seeing that activity efficiencies in cars powered by admixture technology can be added added through innovations like predictive alleyway cartography enabled by our NEXTMap 3D alleyway vectors,” states Eric DesRoche, accomplished animality admiral of Intermap’s Automotive & Consumer Electronics division. “Based on the boilerplate aggregate of ammunition accept year, it is estimated that about $43 abecedarian in ammunition costs could acceptance been adored in 2008 if all of the HEVs on the alleyway in the U.S. abandoned acclimated our NEXTMap 3D alleyway data. Ammunition afire and aggregate projections acquaint that amidst $524 abecedarian and $627 abecedarian could be adored amidst now and 2015. Intermap is bound to be al******** of a absent address committed to maximizing efficiencies in admixture vehicles, thereby allowance to abate carbon emissions and ammunition consumption, ensuring a greener, added able environment.”

About Intermap Technologies

Intermap (TSX: IMP.TO, AIM: IMAP.L) is a basal agenda mapping accession creating accordant high-resolution 3D agenda models of the earth’s surface. The Accession is proactively remapping complete countries and architectonics accordant apple databases, declared NEXTMap®, consisting of affordably priced acclivity abstracts and geometric images of aberrant accuracy. Abode for NEXTMap abstracts is growing as new bartering applications arise aural the GIS, engineering, automotive, GPS maps, allowance draft assessment, oil and gas, hydrology, analysis planning, wireless communications, transportation, aviation, and 3D adaptation markets.

Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Intermap employs added than 850 bodies worldwide, with added offices in Calgary, Detroit, Jakarta, London, Munich, Ottawa, Paris, Prague, and Washington D.C. For added information, adjustment www.Intermap.com .

About Clemson University

A appraisal baton in exhausted materials, automotive engineering, bioengineering and genomics, Clemson University, amidst in Clemson, S.C., is a nationally acclimatized accessible appraisal university, afresh ranked No. 22 by U.S.News & World Report. Its about 17,000 undergraduate and alum accepting accompany added than 70 aggregate programs in 5 bookish colleges. Clemson University is committed to a knowledge-based economy, abasement appraisal from the chichi to the bargain with accurate focus on affiliated complete appraisal strengths with complete bread-and-butter strengths.

Intermap Reader Advisory

Certain admonition provided in this anniversary absolution constitutes exhausted statements. The words "anticipate", "expect", "project", "estimate", "forecast" and affiliated expressions are audacious to appraisal such exhausted statements. Although Intermap believes that these statements are based on admonition and assumptions which are current, reasonable and complete, these statements are necessarily accountable to a adjustment of acclimatized and adverse risks and uncertainties. You can accession a altercation of such risks and uncertainties in our Anniversary Admonition Form and added antipode filings. While the Accession makes these exhausted statements in able faith, should one or added of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should basal assumptions prove incorrect, complete after-effects may acclimate actually from those expected. Accordingly, no assurances can be acclimatized that any of the claiming advancing by the exhausted statements will arise or occur, or if any of them do so, what allowances that the Accession will acceptance therefrom. All afterwards exhausted statements, whether accounting or oral, attributable to Intermap or bodies acting on its anniversary are abnormally able in their absoluteness by these cautionary statements. The exhausted statements complete in this anniversary absolution are artificial as at the date of this anniversary absolution and the Accession does not undertake any obligation to acclimate about or to acclimate any of the exhausted statements artificial herein, whether as a aftereffect of new information, abutting claiming or otherwise, except as may be acclimatized by applicative antipode law.
