The Germany city of Hamburg and mapping and location specialist Here Technologies plan to share traffic-relevant data, with the aim of enhancing traffic safety and reduce noise and pollutant emissions by improving traffic flows. The partners plan to cooperate in various areas and to start joint projects.
As part of the partnership Hamburg will provide Here with access to up-to-date, non-personal data related to public transit, construction sites, major events and parking availability. Here will integrate this data into the Here Reality Index, its database of location-based information.
Based on this data both partners can jointly or separately develop services and provide information to transport users, helping them to take the best decisions and enabling Hamburg to improve its traffic management. In addition, both partners plan to co-operate on enabling automated driving in urban environments, which can use the Here HD Live Map, which supports autonomous driving.
