Powered by Guardian.co.ukLesi sihloko osesikhundleni “ekubuyiseleni Beeline Ukubuyekeza idivayisi navigation: fun ukucindezeleka khulula wabahloli” lalotshwa Alastair Jardine, ngoba theguardian.com ngoLwesithathu ngomhla ka-25 Novemba 2015 09.52 UTC

Lokhu kubuyekeza lwenziwa nge-prototype zakuqala-qophelo Beeline, Inikwe amandla yi-ibhodi Arduino. I hardware sokugcina nesaba lokusebenza ngenxa yomkhumbi August 2016 uyobheka ahlukene.

I Beeline idivayisi umjikelezo navigation ukuthi oyiphepha kuyithuba-by-phenduka tinkhombandlela yakho evamile for umcibisholo njalo ukhomba wena endaweni efanele.

Umkhankaso njengoba umkhankaso Kickstarter, Beeline akuyona idivayisi turn-by-turn GPS ubungeke ube emotweni, esikhundleni kumane nje kubonisa isiqondiso oya kuyo yokugcina. It kukunika inkululeko eyengeziwe ukuze uthole khona usebenzisa nouse yakho. Abasunguli balo call it "navigation fuzzy".

Umqondo ilula. I Beeline isebenzisa smartphone yakho ukuze wenze iningi izinto ezisindayo: uxhuma ulibangisephi yokugcina ibe lokusebenza, futhi isiqondiso kanye nebanga ke aboniswe kudivayisi Beeline eyibophele handlebars yakho.

Uhlelo lokusebenza lokugcina uyophinde asekele zendlela, ngokuvumela umzila nezimo nge intandokazi coffee shop yakho. Insiza Ngase ngithatha-spin ubengase ukhombe nami kokuqondisa uya khona single.

Fun futhi akulethi ukucindezeleka kuka vula-by-turn

Idivayisi omnyama puck encane, Ukuze akhulumisane ifoni usebenzisa i-Bluetooth. It ezizibeni emhlabeni handlebars, futhi has a encane isiyingi e-paper ukubonisa ukukhombisa isiqondiso kanye nebanga eya endaweni oya kuyo.

Ukusebenzisa kuba kumnandi kakhulu esingaphezu bendabuko turn-by-turn idivayisi GPS; they kungakubeka ngaphasi kwegandelelo ngandlela-thile ngebhayisikili, futhi kungakusiza umzila nge imigwaqo ikakhulukazi ngemjikeleto abanaluzwela. Zimayelana ukuqeqesheka, hhayi uyihlole.

Ngokukhomba nje lapho uya khona okokugcina, the Beeline odlulisela umuzwa senkululeko. It uzizwa ephapheme ngokwanele ukuze wena ngeke zizohamba ezingafanele ukuze bathole isikhathi eside. Kwakungekho ukuthi umuzwa ingebhe ngezinye izikhathi uzizwa udlula usebenzisa ikhompyutha GPS ibhayisikili. A side inzuzo yokubonisa isiqondiso wukuthi kuphoqa ukuthi uphinde ukubandakanya nendawo yakho, futhi kukunikeza umuzwa kunamandla endaweni.

Having ezingabanjwanga turnings abaningi computer turn-by-turn wamabhayisikili, I bangakufakazela ukuba kuthatha ubuhlungu. Bavame kuthathe isikhathi ukuba aqaphele uku off course bese akucele ukuba recalculate umzila. Uma usukhethe ukuba wenze lokho, uke zingalitholi thumela best okuholela umjikelezo kokuma, elinde ke ukubamba up, abese uya aphinde. Akuve sezimiso.

Esinye isici nice hardware kuyinto ngobukhulu bayo (uma ihamba - okwamanje kungcono indalo MacGyver-like okuhilela Arduino kanye nebhethri USB). Akuve encane ngokwanele ukuba igcinwe esikhwameni, isikhwama noma saddlebag. Eyoba yikho idivayisi cishe ongafuna ukusebenzisa phezu smartphone yakho for navigation ngoba ngokugcina screen yefoni yakho ku obulala ibhethri yayo.

Ifaka it futhi detaching kuba lula njengoba akukho ubakaki kwesokunxele ngemuva. Sibonelo wakhe wawenziwa ngo-nge a enjoloba band esintamo ukuthi ixhunyiwe Beeline ukuze esivalweni sawo. Laba bobabili zigundiwe ku nomunye bayibambe handlebars. It wazizwa OK, kodwa abakwazanga nge intuthuko njengoba kwakunjalo kancane okuxekethile. I lid kungenziwa ziphenywe on screen izithuthi esikhwameni noma ephaketheni.

Price

I Beeline itholakala ku Kickstarter njengamanje £ 45, futhi kulindeleke ukuba athumele ngo-Agasti 2016. A wekugcina okudayisa kulindeleke ukuba abiza azungeze £ 60.

Isinqumo

Kuyacaca kukhona igebe for non-GPS enophephela umzila lapho ukuhlola lokuqwashisa kubaluleke ngaphezu umzila ofanele. Ngisho esimweni sayo prototype, the Beeline kwakumnandi ukusebenzisa, ngiyitholile akulethi ukucindezeleka ukusebenzisa kuka bendabuko turn-by-turn uhlelo.

Umqondo umsindo ngalabo gibela emadolobheni futhi wazi izinto ezilukhuni lapho Bazophuma, noma ufuna ukwazi ukuzivumelanisa nezimo ngaphezulu endleleni. Sizobona ukuthi hardware libukeka once idivayisi lithunyelwe ngo-August.

Buhle: encane, ukukhanya, Kulula unamathisele, more ogibele inkululeko, akukho ukubambezeleka kabusha umzila, impilo enhle battery ngenxa kwesikrini e-paper (ngemcondvo)

Bawo: kudinga usebenzisa ikhanda lakho kunokuba izinkomba zokulandela, Ningathathi umzila ofanele, uyawusekela lutho crowdfunding kunengozi
