KNIGHT2000 Thunder - IoT 3.0

The Era of KITT Living Services

The Era of Connected intelligence that will revolutionize the ability to create exciting and indispensable services

In the ’90 Born the Web and Internet Network

In the years 2000 the mobility Concept take Advantage Respect classic Internet

In the years 2010 born "The Era of IoT" and then "The Era of Living Services"

For Internet of Things (IoT), the objects ("things") will make it recognizable and acquire intelligence thanks to the fact of being able to communicate information about themselves

Living Services is the combination of two powerful forces: the digitization of everything and liquid (“real time”) consumer expectations.
Because they will flow through devices that will always be with us, such as wearable or the nearable, and because they will have on our lives a much more profound and positive impact of what they've got mobile and web.
"The Era of Living Services", now leads the evolution of services created by the convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and "liquid" expectations of modern consumers.

Over the next years, sensors, the cloud, connected smart devices and real-time analytics will combine to deliver a new layer of connected intelligence that will revolutionize the ability to create exciting and indispensable services. They will transform and improve the way we live, removing mundane tasks and anticipating our needs in delightful ways.

What is the CO.CPU or CO-Central Processing Unit

The KITT CO-Processing CPU Unit, or CO.CPU is a microprocessor, not a carpc, can work alone (without PC turned ON or with PC turn ON) and in combination with your Mobile Device (Smartphone or smartwatch); at the moment it has not a Video Output because use the smartphone as video output. It is possible connect the CO.CPU to a Windows Carpc with a simple USB connection.

It allows you to:

  • control relays of the car with voice command also without a carpc
  • control many KITT functions with smartphone also without a carpc
  • talk with KITT without a carpc
  • remote control KITT via SMS
  • interface KITT with the outside world with many sensors
  • and many others

The CO.CPU has a power consumption of up to 1,3 Ampere with 6 volts in order to operate for hours and hours or days without draining your car battery or simply by plugging it into a separate pile.

So here is below a schematic possible configurations

  • Mobile Device + CO-CPU + sensors + relays Boards
  • Mobile Device + CO-CPU + sensors + relays Boards + KITT electronics dash
  • Mobile Device + CO-CPU + sensors + relays Boards + KITT electronics dash + PC (Knight2000 Thunder PC Software) + Central lower Console

CO.CPU is a Open System can be interface with electronics of other vendors

The CO.CPU system can be interfaced with system of others vendors; the IoT 3.0 in this version is interfaciable with the ideegeniali dash electronics, with a protocol Comunication link that required only a wire from the COM port of CO.CPU to all the COM port of each Dash Board. The Windows software is also capable of interface with the ideegeniali Central Lower Console, to the SPACEMAT keyboard.



The IoT 3.0 allows the Voice Recognition also without any windows CARPC; voice recognition use the KNIGHT2000 Thunder IoT APP and allows to recognize all languages supported because it is system language indipendent  (a part English, Deutch, French, Spanish and Italian also Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Russian and so on).

So do not need buy any microphone, do not need any voice training for instructing the speech recognition because it is voice independent, do not make use of any special heavy and costly voice recognition software, which can slow down your PC performance in terms of CPU and RAM occupied. This Voice Recognition need however an Internet Connection, if it is not available the system is anyway compatible with both VoiceAttack and Dragon that can be used simultaneously or even in place of the KITT CO-Processing CPU.


The CO.CPU and the upgradable firmware

The CO.CPU is firmware upgradale, so you can have new functions or best function with a periodic firmware upgrade. The ONLY UPGRADE of the firmware is FREE !


The APP for SmartPhone or SmartWatch

The APP is compatible with Android systems, and it is adaptable to the smartwatch but need a medium or big display otherwise many function are not usable. It allows control KITT also without a CARPC; if you have a CARPC the APP also control the KNIGHT2000 Thunder platform on the carPC and in this case it become a Custom remote controller of the Windows Software



The system is interfaciable with the ideegeniali electronics, with a protocol Comunication link that required only a wire from the COM port of CO.CPU to all the COM port of each Dash Board

Alghoritm used

The calculation works by analyzing the GPS-determined locations transmitted by a large number of mobile phone users and by calculating the speed of users along a length of road

When a threshold of users in a particular area is noted, the overlay along roads and highways on the Google map changes color

Cellular telephone companies constantly monitor the locations of user devices. One tracking method is trilateration, whereby the distance (time delay) to three or more surrounding cell phone towers is measured. Another tracking method monitors the exact user coordinates determined by a GPS receiver inside the phone

Face Recognition (Surveillance Mode)

This feature allow to scanning the environment with a Normal Webcam and a recognize the presence of a Human Face. The recognition of a person's face KITT can undertake a particular preprogrammed action .

KITT Fuctions corresponding

It is used in the real Film features of Surveillance Mode of KITT

Face Detection can be performed fairly reliably working in roughly 90-95% of clear CAM image of a person looking forward at the camera. It is usually harder to detect a person's face when they are viewed from the side or at an angle.

It can also be very difficult to detect a person's face if the image is not very bright, or if part of the face is brighter than another or has shadows or is blurry or wearing glasses, etc. However, Face Recognition is much less reliable than Face Detection.

Alghoritm used

It use the principle of Haar-like features used in Object Recognitions

Haar-like feature’s principle is based on detection of features encoding of some information about the class to be detected. They are adjacent rectangles in a particular position of an image. Figure 1 shows the types of Haar-like features depending on the number of adjacent rectangles.


Infrared Temperature Detect (Infrared Tracking Scope)

This features is used for Detected Movement, in particular

  • Sensing and measuring surface temperatures without surface contact
  • Monitoring a system for over-temperature conditions
  • Human or animal presence detection
  • Movement detection
  • Body temperature measurement


KITT Fuctions corresponding

It is corresponding to the Infrared Tracking Scope It is an enhanced version of the Tracking Scope that uses infrared to scan. Range: 10 miles (Tracking Scope- This locks on to a certain car so Michael can track it).


Alghoritm used

Wide temperature ranges: -40 to 125 C for the ambient temperature and -70 to 382.2 C for the object temperature.  

Maximum effective distance

In order to determine the maximum distance we first need to understand how KITT measures temperature. KITT takes in IR radiation in a conical pattern from directly in front of the black canister mounted on the board. The field of view (FOV) of the device is rated at 10, to illustrate:

The measured value is the average temperature of all objects in the 10 Field Of View of the sensor.

Note that this means that you can measure the temperature of objects from any distance provided the object is of sufficient size. This is a bit counter-intuitive but true. You could measure the temperature of the sun from 7.9 million kilometers away though the data would admittedly be about 26 seconds old.
