Traffic issues have a significant impact on our lives. Incidents and congestion on highways and roads can add uncertainty to travel times, imposing significant costs on business operations and commuters.
Our traffic technologies have been rigorously engineered to provide highly accurate, timesaving traffic information that benefits a variety of industries.
Highly accurate real-time traffic information
Get the traffic insights you need, exactly when you need them. We collect billions of GPS data points every day and leverage over 100 different incident sources to provide a robust foundation for our traffic services – including vehicle sensor data, smartphones, PNDs, road sensors and connected cars. In addition, our traffic experts monitor incidents as they happen, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Historic and real-time traffic, intelligently integrated
Plan better and save time. We embed real-time traffic information into our intelligent routing algorithms, allowing users to predict current road conditions and get precise ETA’s. In addition, historical data informs on previous traffic conditions to help with pre-trip planning. This information can be provided based on the day of the week, and a time on that desired day.
Rely on accurate, fresh traffic insights. The Traffic component of HERE Location Services is comprehensive, with services offered across 100% of the roads in the 63 markets we serve. It’s built on our highly accurate map and enhanced by more than 100 incident sources – sophisticated vehicle sensors, national and regional traffic information hubs, road works data providers and our own traffic operations center.
With detailed insights, highly accurate and fresh traffic data, plus real-time and historic data integration, customers can arrive safely and efficiently.
Supporting businesses on the move
Understanding traffic is an important part of mapping, as it helps make journeys safer and more efficient. HERE provides real-time traffic information that is refreshed in one-minute intervals, so that drivers especially concerned with ETAs can be kept fully informed and act accordingly.
Traffic information is color-coded and placed directly on the map. It also includes historical traffic information, showing how traffic usually flows at a particular point on a given day, and incident information, which provides context around a type of incident, when it started, and when it is expected to end. It all comes together to help drivers plan the best route to their final destination.
