December 2021 Release Announcement


Further improve user anonymity by removing journey stay points with HERE Anonymizer

Journey stay points represent locations that users visit or end their journey. Stay points can be used to infer back on individuals, thus compromising their anonymity.

Now HERE Anonymizer can predict upcoming stay points in real-time using a machine learning model based on patented HERE technology. You can set up the Anonymizer pipeline template to remove these stay points. This lets you improve the anonymity of your users and further protect your brand by preventing critical privacy breaches.

Increase revenue and user satisfaction with ticket booking for Flixbus connections via HERE Transit API

As of now, responses from Transit and Intermodal API that include Flixbus connections will also include the ticket price and a deeplink to the Flixbus app and webpage to book tickets for the connection. Note, this applies to FlixBus and FlixTrain connections alike.

Use this feature to create a richer experience for your end-users and generate additional revenue via referral commissions that Flixbus might issue.

Improve the operation of your trucking enterprise with better prediction of expected time of arrival

We have improved the expected time of arrival (ETA) calculation for truck routing. In an experimental feature we are now applying region-based, non-posted speed limit regulations to adjust the speed profiles.

Include the following parameter in your request to have this new method applied for the truck ETA calculation: experimental[useNewTruckSpeedProfile]=true.
