CES 2024: HERE and Uber join forces to enhance precise mapping
Together, the two tech giants will help provide safe and more accurate drop-off and pick-up points at locations, including airports, stadiums, arenas and high-traffic areas globally.
CES 2024 is off to a showstopping start.
Not only has HERE been selected by Uber to drive precise mapping and geolocation functionalities, but HERE location data will also be used to enhance the ridesharing company’s user experience and efficiency around the world — across both Uber’s mobility and delivery businesses.
With millions of rides a day, this means HERE will help work together to help provide safe and more accurate drop-off and pick-up points at locations, including airports, stadiums, arenas and high-traffic areas globally.
In a fast moving world, Uber’s partnership with HERE helps enable Uber to remain a leader in this space with heightened fresh and accurate data, and we’re excited to continue building with them.
“The mapping capability is key to creating a fast and intuitive experience for on-demand mobility and delivery solutions,” said Ajay Dalvi, Senior Director of Business Development at Uber. “Ultimately, it’s all about ensuring end-users, from drivers to couriers to consumers, have the best possible experience when they’re using the Uber apps.
“In a fast-moving world, Uber’s partnership with HERE helps enable us to remain a leader in this space with heightened fresh and accurate data, and we’re excited to continue building with them.”
“We are proud to provide Uber with HERE’s robust point address and Points of Interest datasets,” said Stuart Ryan, SVP and General Manager of the Americas at HERE Technologies.
“The HERE platform uniquely offers Uber the ability to customize the app offering, improving the customer experience with better precision and fresh map data. This partnership will continue to build and improve on the Uber platform, making it safer and more efficient for rides and deliveries around the world.”
Uber and HERE are also exploring new ways to bring additional location-based tools to continue to grow the capabilities of the Uber platform.
