Scalable solutions to manage the changing needs of growing populations

By 2030, cities will be home to 70% of the world’s population. Traffic in dense urban areas will reach record highs, threatening quality of life and safety. Transit and logistics infrastructures will be tested to breaking point, while on-demand services and the use of autonomous vehicles will continue to pose unexpected challenges.

To embrace this evolution and set the foundations for a future-proof city with a strong economy, governments and businesses need to dissolve data silos and leverage real-time data from thousands of diverse sources, connected by a single unifying factor: location.

Ensuring safe and efficient movement of citizens and goods

  • Reduced travel times
  • Fewer bottlenecks
  • Quicker incident response times
  • Reduced safety-related incidents
  • On-time arrival of goods and people

A collaborative platform from a trusted partner

The HERE Open Location Platform (OLP) enables governments and businesses to work together on modernizing urban movement. By bringing location context to the huge amounts of past and current data already available at the municipal level, HERE helps public and private stakeholders understand when, where and how best to respond to the population’s changing requirements. Our focus on privacy and transparent access puts users in control.

OPTIMIZATION

Reducing congestion and easing mobility

HERE provides highly accurate, real-time and historical traffic data that enables cities to predict, manage and plan future traffic conditions more appropriately – relieving congestion and curbing pollution to deliver a better quality of life. Through road network insights, governments and businesses can make better decisions around engineering, traffic flow, fleet and passenger routing, and more.

Efficiency in action in Missouri

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) partnered with HERE to tackle everyday traffic problems. Leveraging real-time HERE probe segment speeds that are reported across the entire length of Interstate 70 in the state, MoDOT’s award-winning “Rural Queue” and “Delay Warning” systems are making their efforts even smarter, and getting drivers to their destinations more effectively and reliably.

With deep analysis of big data from an increasing number of sensors, devices and vehicles, MoDOT is able to gather better insights to streamline movement and even inform decisions on future infrastructure development.

SAFETY

Creating safer roads and reducing incidents

For over 30 years, HERE has supported the growing role of location data in mitigating incidents and expediting emergency response. Today we’re taking driver safety to new levels with Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) that offer real-time warnings 
of road obstacles, traffic jams, and more, and evolving transport altogether with automated driving solutions.

“The partnership supports our goal to transform Hamburg into a model city for modern mobility – this will make traffic for citizens more efficient, comfortable and environmentally friendly.” Frank Horch, Hamburg Senator for Economy, Transport and Innovation

Safety in action in Slovenia’s transport corridors

DARS, the company that manages Slovenia’s 800km road network, has partnered with HERE to improve highway safety by building critical new driver-alert functionality into their existing smartphone app.

As well as being more cost effective than starting from the ground up, the HERE solution reaches over 10,000 drivers who are already using the app as they traverse this central European transport corridor.

Connected to the HERE Open Location Platform, drivers will receive hyperlocal updates of road hazards and adverse weather, and can look forward to future scaling of the project when smart vehicle technology will use the same system to communicate directly between vehicles and with Slovenia’s traffic management center.

EFFICIENCY

Streamlining the movement of people and goods

HERE pools location data from owned sources, partners and more to enable quick, seamless and efficient multi-modal transport. Our data can inform decisions around initiatives that better cater to growing populations – from cycle schemes to pedestrian zones. Through real-time and historical location data, businesses can follow assets through the supply chain to optimize utilization, reduce waste, and increase operational insights.

Solving Chicago’s complex urban challenges

In 2017, HERE joined City Tech Collaborative to work with public and private sector partners on a big task: defining challenges and piloting and testing solutions, using the City of Chicago as a testbed.

Since then, HERE has helped initiate the Urban Logistics Pilot. The aim of the pilot, which has been joined by a breadth of major players including Mastercard, Microsoft, Accenture, FedEx and UPS, is to solve two of the biggest logistics problems of today: congestion and pollution.
