HERE Departure Alerts: Under the hood

HERE Departure Alerts is a RESTful service that learns a driver’s regular destinations and frequently traveled routes between those destinations by time and day. The service helps drivers reach their destination as comfortably and efficiently as possible by combining learned driver preferences with HERE Real-Time Traffic to proactively deliver useful information on road conditions.

How the service works:

Commute learning

Drivers are creatures of habit. HERE Departure Alerts learns a driver’s travel patterns, such as common destinations and which routes they prefer to take, based on when and where they start their journey. The learnings happen in the Cloud.

Fusing Real-Time Traffic

HERE Departure Alerts combines the learned habits of a driver with HERE Real-Time Traffic data to help drivers plan their route. The service offers the highest quality flow and incident data available, delivering up-to-the-minute information that helps drivers always be on time.

Predicting destinations

Based on the time and location of departure, HERE Departure Alerts predicts the most likely destinations and routes for the driver, complete with accurate ETAs. Now even before getting into their cars, drivers know which route to take to avoid heavy traffic.
