Volvo Chooses HERE to Power Vehicle Location Services

Volvo has chosen navigation specialist HERE to handle its off-board vehicle location services.

The Swedish manufacturer has signed a multi-year map data agreement with HERE for cloud based cloud services that require knowledge of a vehicle’s location and for the management of information relating to the vehicle’s specific geographical location. Announced at the Mobile World Congress 2019, the agreement aids Volvo’s plans to deploy services it has developed in its own cloud environment to enhance vehicle performance and the driver experience.

“We are delighted to serve Volvo Cars and its customers,” said Stefan Hansen, senior vice-president and general manager for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia at HERE Technologies.
