HERE Expands Real-Time Traffic Capabilities

HERE Technologies has showcased its latest navigation software claiming up-graded real-time traffic information.

The location data and technology company launched its Advanced Real-Time Traffic service at the ITS World Congress this week in Hamburg, Germany. It claims to feature new lane level information and expanded inner-city coverage.

Its systems claims to be the industry’s first traffic service that provides accurate speeds on arterial lanes with congestion at intersections, as well as the different speeds on roads with high occupancy vehicle lanes, such as those in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the US. The service boasts increased granular traffic coverage in more than 100 cities worldwide, across all street types, allowing for a better understanding of the overall traffic situation within a city. Jørgen Behrens, senior vice-president and chief product officer, said: “Global traffic volumes have been severely impacted by the pandemic. Even with loosening restrictions, traffic congestion will be more unpredictable than before owing to changes in our work behavior. This means that up-to-date traffic information is more important than ever. That’s why we continue to refine and expand our traffic offering, helping people, companies and cities to save both time and money and improve the quality of life in cities.”
