56% of all light #vehicles in the US will be actively connected #cars by 2022 | #TpromoCom #IoT #Internet | Parks Associates estimates the US will have 169 million actively connected cars by 2022, representing 56% of all light vehicles.

The firm’s 23rd-annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, May 21-23 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, features the Connected Car Corner, by InstallerNet, and a special session on the connected car-smart home crossover to examine the latest innovations in this market area and the opportunities for vendors, manufacturers, and service providers to extend their IoT solutions to the vehicle.

The Connected Car Corner, by InstallerNet, features innovations from Alpine, Owlcam, Reviver, SiriusXM, Support.com, VOXX, and Waylens, among others. Solutions on display include Android Auto and Apple Car Play, dash camera recording, customer lifecycle support, digital key control and license plate, driver scoring, remote engine start, radar detection, GPS navigation, safety and security features, voice activation, WiFi hotspot, and wireless backup camera.

The session “Connected Cars: Extension for the Smart Home” features the following speakers:

  • Brian Brackenbury, Director, Connected Products, Gentex Corporation
  • Jan-Philipp Gehrmann, Director, Head of Automotive Sales & Marketing Silicon Valley, NXP
  • Andy Hodge, CEO, Founder, Owl Cameras Inc.
  • Katie McMahon, VP and GM, SoundHound Inc.
  • Dr. Alan Messer, CTO, Mojio

“From a technology perspective, many of the building blocks are already in-place for cars to connect to the smart home; however, ensuring a simple, intuitive, easy-to-use interface is critical for a non-distracted driving experience,” said Brian Brackenbury, Director, Connected Products, Gentex Corporation. “While voice has made some great strides forward, the automobile environment has factors like road noise, fellow passengers, and noisy kids that don’t always make voice the right choice for a user interface. Aggregating the fragmented services into a simple, one-touch interface, like HomeLink Connect, will ensure the end user gets something they can actually use every day, in all conditions!”

“The interrelationships between our homes, devices, and vehicles are becoming smarter and more seamless,” said Jan-Philipp Gehrmann, Sr. Director, Head of Automotive Sales & Marketing Silicon Valley, NXP. “I look forward to joining the Premier Connected Home Conference to share more about these exciting developments and how new automotive technologies are making transport increasingly autonomous, safer, more environmentally sound, and securely connected.”

“Connected car is what’s next after the connected home. Just like it is in the home, video security is at the heart of what consumers and businesses need for their cars and trucks,” said Andy Hodge, CEO, Founder, Owl Cameras Inc.

“Our burgeoning global population is straining our housing supply worldwide. We must do everything we’re able to avoid a tangential energy crisis, and smart apartment technology is uniquely positioned to do so,” said Felicite Moorman, CEO, STRATIS IoT.

“With the adoption of voice AI technology in connected cars as a top priority in the automotive industry, we’re at a tipping point for leveraging voice across all industries,” said Katie McMahon, VP/GM, SoundHound. “I look forward to telling the story of how integrating voice AI into cars and other Internet of Things devices can vastly improve consumers’ customized experiences, as well as allow companies to maintain their own brands.”

“The smart home ecosystem is expanding rapidly,” said Dr. Alan Messer, CTO, Mojio. “As consumers realize the value of an increasingly connected lifestyle, innovative players like Mojio and Vivint are enabling the next generation of consumer IoT services that unite the capabilities of connected cars and smart homes to unlock enhanced safety, security, and convenience protection for the two most valuable assets – our homes and our cars.”

AC Hotel in Times Square Installs Custom Boon Edam Revolving Door

AC Hotel in Times Square Installs Custom Boon Edam Revolving Door | #TpromoCom #Door #Hotel #Security | A Boon Edam BoonAssist manual revolving door met all of those requirements and more for the revolving door required at the AC Hotels by Marriott brand, located on West 40th Street.

May 8, 2019 – Times Square in New York City is arguably one of the most popular attractions in the world, with restaurants, stores, energetic crowds and pulsing lights from towering digital billboards. It’s also home to AC Hotel New York Times Square, a recently opened property that’s part of the AC Hotels by Marriott brand, located on West 40th Street.

The one-year-old hotel has 21 floors with 290 rooms and suites, with options including high views, floor-to-ceiling windows and full balconies. It also has more than 3,500 square feet of event space, a 24/7 fitness center, an AC Library, and Castell Rooftop Lounge on the 21st floor. The hotel, which was designed by Helpern Architects of New York City, is detailed with original artwork in the hotel’s shared spaces – from sculptures to abstract paintings – by a mix of local, national and international artists. The photography in the guestrooms is by Richard Silver, featuring NYC’s iconic architecture. OTO Development, part of The Johnson Group, owns and operates AC Hotel New York Times Square.

A Main Entrance with Style and Function
On average, more than 1,000 people enter the hotel each day, says General Manager Ben Britton. The property’s design team sought a main entrance solution that would not only accommodate pedestrian traffic, but would also fit with the hotel’s soaring glass exterior and all-white entrance with its large, cantilevered awning extending over the sidewalk. The solution also needed to filter outside noise and other sensory distractions to help create an “oasis of calm, a retreat from the New York City’s hustle and bustle,” Britton says. In addition, the entrance solution needed to coordinate with the overall hotel brand, based on providing a harmonious, modern and discerning guest experience.

A Boon Edam BoonAssist manual revolving door met all of those requirements and more, including a custom-made, all-white color that matches the exterior entrance decor. The door’s dimensions are built to complement the scale of the entry at 10 feet diameter and almost 14 feet tall. “Due to the size of the door, we chose the manual assist option to reduce strain on the motor,” explains Britton. “The door has a weight to it that provides a sense of grandeur as you enter the hotel, while the power assist feature makes it easy for our guests to use.”

Revolving Doors Enhance the Sensory Experience
The revolving door also helps ensure that guests are connected with the full experience that the hotel aims to provide. “We are very keen on providing a sensory experience,” Britton says. “The lobby exudes the AC Hotels brand signature scent. We work to ensure the lobby space is quiet and calm so that our business guests can conduct a business conversation. Considering the environment outside on the street, the revolving door helps us achieve these goals – it also provides a brief transition experience for the customer as they pass through it, sort of ’washing the street off of you,’” Britton observes.

Britton notes that maintenance of the Boon Edam revolving door has been seamless, with no issues to date. The hotel’s engineering team is fully trained on the door’s operation, including its regular maintenance schedule.

The hotel’s operations team is pleased with how the Boon Edam revolving door controls pedestrian traffic and creates an ideal transition into the peaceful lobby; the design team is happy with how the door design and special color add to the beauty of the hotel exterior.

“AC Hotel Times Square has gotten a lot of attention both nationally and internationally,” Britton says. “I believe that this type of sleek, modern design is the future. Hotel chains will update their design elements to be more in line with what our hotel has already accomplished. Boon Edam provided a great solution.”

Beyond South China Sea tensions, part two: The CCP vision and the future of Chinese history | #TpromoCom #China #Communist #USA | This week on the program, we’re going to continue our exploration of the U.S.-China relationship, which we began last week with our investigation into the history of tensions between the U.S. and Chinese navies in and around the South China Sea.

This week we turn our attention to the future. Specifically the how the Chinese Communist Party views its future. Because the more we spoke with analysts and observers about the South China Sea, the more we heard we ought to look not only at that troubled body of water you can spot on a map — but also to the fundamental differences in how China’s leadership views the world, how it views competition with the United States and its allies, and perhaps most importantly, how Chinese leaders view power, control and history.
