View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Telematics, is a specialized field of networked engineering multimedia for automobiles, that combines computers and wireless telecommunications with motor vehicles.

This book-CD combo 3D interactive multimedia and full color print publication, tested on many undergraduate and graduate students and professionals in the USA and in the UK, is an excellent introduction to digital factory and digital telematic car modeling and integration challenges. Principles, requirements, design challenges, applications, R&D and practical examples are discussed with 3D multimedia and active, open-source code, and novel methods & solutions by Professor Ranky. If you need a good overview on the topic, you have found it!

It discusses the basic principles of telematics, architectures developed by IBM, methods, tools and technologies with several practical, real-world demonstrations, outside and inside a digital car, explained and demonstrated by our industry expert, David C. Loose, a professional software engineer and I/T architect, with IBM?s Telematics Solutions Group in Austin, Texas, USA.

The over 400 interactive screens, and more than 30 minutes of digital videos and highly interactive 3DVR object screens cover:

* Introduction to telematics
* A detailed case study on the requirements analysis,
* Design challenges,
* Architecture, and
* Application opportunities of telematics with videos and animation inside and outside a digital, web-enabled, networked automobile
* Case-based learning and marketing methods
* Major Review Questions & Problems
* References
* Case documentation guidelines
* Useful spreadsheet templates for educators and students
* A Major Glossary of Terms
* Customizable, open-source MS-Excel Tools & Templates to perform your own requirements analysis and
* Process failure risk analysis calculations

Furthermore, we cover a section of Advanced 3DVR Object Demos and Beautiful Images/ Videos to relax.

Please note, that this multimedia case publication includes several open source, customizable spreadsheet (i.e. active code) templates in MS-Excel.
