Special graphics specifically designed for a perfect match to the style Knight Rider.
New features, special effects graphics, internet technology, Satellite and much more. The recent version 2.0 (2017) offers more features
The Presentation of the Software in PreviewIt was officially presented to the Italian Knight Rider Festival at June 22, 2013 in Milan, on board one of the most perfect and faithful replicas exist, that its management has opted for the platform KNIGHT2000 Thunder Voice Console; the same Michael Scheffe, having viewed and used in the program wrote (see above)
The technology used
KNIGHT2000 Thunder is a completely new and rewritten from scratch, using technology from
Microsoft, Visual Studio, then a set of real programming
languages. This is not a conglomeration of several different programs made by various
manufacturers and sold as owners, but rather an integrated platform, where the code has
been written line by line from scratch in 'Area Development RoadThudhnerStorm (RTS
Study and ResearchBehind the creation of the software there is a study and research (by 's RTS Research Department) in order to:.
- Implement a software for as much as possible in line with the television series, for the management of the replicas of KITT ..
- Create a graphical particular: 800x600 created specifically for monitor 5 "mounted in the replicas and studied, with the support of a Study of Information Design, for a perfect match with the graphics and the colors of the dashboard ..
- Have new sounds taken directly from the television series, and rebuilt in the studio in digital, absolutely faithful to the TV series ..
- Take into account the suggestions received from the replicants

The Voice Control: which program to use The platform is fully navigable and controllable by voice using the software:
- IBM ViaVoice: of IBM
- Dragon Naturally Speaking of Nuance
Except fo the version IoT not need any software but use your smartphone or smarwatch for VOice Control
It should be noted that the 'voice use that is made at the level of Car-PC is very limited, and the two programs for the purpose almost equate, because both software are used to ask to recognize individual words (eg Hello) or more than 2 or 3 words (eg How are you, Open the glass, ..), it is not a fact-intensive and heavy as the dictation of long texts in a text editor (such as Word or Excel) or used to interact with Windows with voice commands complex and far.
The Roadthunderstorm tried them bothViaVoice is now out of production and for the occasional user is complex installation in the latest generation of Operating Systems (XP post which is now destined to oblivion as has been shown by one of the most reliable systems), even if the recognition engine does not lose its compatibilià with them, because ViaVoice part and is resident in memory, only you can not see the GUI and is not controllable. Dragon is instead continually manuntenuto with new releases, and therefore more accurate in understanding, which is known mostly in the case of intensive use as mentioned above, and less in the case of simple commands such as 2 or 3 or even single words.
ViaVoice, however, is much more versatile and easy to use, as well as lighter software to keep active in memory to the PC and has a cost of reduced resources compared to that in the PC Dragon carozzati instead might seem a little slower in their responses.
Roadthunderstorm, in the XP installations continues to use ViaVoice, for the reasons stated above.
Relay Cards: Control and Interaction Auto up to 120 relays on a single USB
To the platform KNIGHT2000 Thunder
were associated tabs industrial relays specially chosen from among a number screened (see
It is in effect a product built with industry standards and is presented
as a finished module , compact, without electronic parts in view , because it is enclosed
in a container with detachable terminal block . Each
module contains 8 relays , and is suitable for a maximum of 15 modules ( 15 x 8 = 120
relay ) with a unique USB port
For example, it is compatible with cards Relay

|The Motion Detection and the Video Surveillance System|
- Management of up to 5 Webcam
- Motion Detection on all the Webcams
- Efficient algorithm for calculating the correlation coefficient based on the moviemnto
- Management of events associated with the movement
- Recording Movies
- Shooting Photos
The platform is capable of handling up to 5 webcam ( the number was simply self-limited ) , being able to assign each of them a pleasure to order . And ' possible to use any type of CAM better if the USB , even economic ones to buy a few euros
On each of the 5 Cam you can take pictures or record a video , as well as to activate the motion detection liking . This is able to provide
- The percentage of movement
- The numerical value of the real movement
Graphically, the changes are shown in red pixels different , with effective graphic effect , see example image above
For the determinazine Movement ( M ) has been used an effective algorithm based on the coefficient of correlations between two variables ; fact The movement is calculated based on the difference between these two variables , namely our images (i1 , i2) , in two instants thereafter. The degree of correlation between the two variables is then expressed by the so-called correlation indices (CI ) .
So our movement M is given by the formula
M = f (IC) dove IC = f (D (i1, i2), D (t1, t2)).
|The GPS Navstar System|
istantanea e velocita media in Kmh o Mph
- Accelerazione dell'auto;
The Knight Rider Speedmeter is the natural evolution
in perfect style Knight Rider, the RTS Voice Module Speedmeter presented in 2008 .
It 's possible to monitor, in real time, many parameters retrieved by a normal satellite connection , including
- The instantaneous speed and average speed in kph or mph
- The acceleration of the car;
- The quality and strength of the satellite signal in db ;
- The altitude in meters or feet ;
- The direction of travel relative to the ground
- The indication of the Latitude and Longitude and their graphical representation
- The horizontal and vertical accuracy of your position in meters
- The graphical representation of the satellites on the horizon , visible and those in use;
- The number of visible satellites , as well as their details , such as power, position , etc. .
The philosophy behind the project RoadThunderStorm is 'to ... realize a central control unit with which it was possible maximum interattivta between man and car ...
In line with this philosophy, the access to all these data and ' possible not only via a handy graphical interface touch screen , but also through simple voice commands and voice responses resulting clear
And ' possible, for example , with a simple voice command, enlarge to full screen the Speed ??Display, for foreground the value of the instantaneous velocity , graphical representation of the time course of the velocity , or the display of the satellites on the horizon Monitor 1 or Monitor 2 by managing multiMonitor
Not only with the Scrolling display may have under control much more info ..
The ' Event Driven Agent and the new device that then allows you to associate the action that you want the most for a given value of the velocity chosen . In doing so, exceeded the thresholds set by you , you can activate :
- An audible signal
- KITT to pronounce a sentence,
- Launch an application already in your possession
At the activation RTS4KITT
Knight Rider Speedmeter will automatically connect to the satellites of the NAVSTAR system,
the speed reading will activate only when
the signal quality will FIX 3D, or after
you hang up at least 4 satellits
GoodGeometric alignment of two satellites
In fact, the operation of NAVSTAR is based on the system of military satellites operated by the U.S. government , 24 + 3 spares , sending a series of digital sequences in which the distances are calculated .RTS4KITT Knight Rider Speedmeter as each GPS receiver , can visualize , apart from exceptional cases , at most 12 , or the satellites located in the hemisphere of belonging .
The distance between the satellites and the receiver is calculated by measuring the time necessary to receive the signal from the satellite that issued it . To take the two-dimensional G.P.S. must "hook " at least three satellites. After that has been calculated the distance to each satellite in the GPS calculates a space in which positions the three spheres of radius equal to the distances available . One gets two intersections : one is the station point of the GPS and the other is directly opposite that is discarded. This position is two-dimensional and therefore carries with it a minimum of error because up to this point was not taken into account the height above sea level of the receiver .
It is necessary a third point to obtain a three-dimensional measurement . It is obtained by hooking the signal from a fourth satellite . Of course, the growing number of satellites contacted decreases the rate of the error. The ' Knight Rider RTS4KITT Speedmeter will only activate in this case, to avoid providing inaccurate measurements .
Accuracy: Interference caused by the reflection of signals 2
What mattersfor the accuracy of the GPS position is received with the position of the satellites in the sky. In practice, the accuracy is higher, the more satellites are widely distributed in the sky, on the contrary, the accuracy is reduced when the satellites are gathered in a confined space. The index of the accuracy of the position is indicated by the indicators of Horizontal and Vertical Accuracy, or the Dilution of Position
where HDOP = Horizontal Diluition of Position and where VDOP = Vertical Diluition of Position
