Together with its partners, Here Technologies is demonstrating how the company is making smart cities a reality, transforming citizens’ lives and bringing the autonomous world closer every day.
As Here Technologies points out, smarter cities and transportation networks require the collection, enrichment and analysis of millions of terabytes of physical infrastructure, vehicular and environmental data. To do so, the company has created the Here Open Location Platform (OLP), a
collaborative, location-centric environment that enables governments and enterprises to safely exchange and utilise mobility data. By bringing location context to the huge amounts of past and current data already available at the municipal level, the Here OLP helps public and private stakeholders understand when, where and how best to respond to the population’s changing requirements. The company’s focus is on privacy and transparent access that puts users in control.
Under the common goal of improving mobility on the road network, Here Technologies is highlighting how it is collaborating with BMW on Socrates 2.0, a programme that promotes OLP continuous deployment of European-wide traffic management measures.
Road authorities, service providers and car manufacturers will participate in four pilot projects in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Munich and Antwerp, which will evaluate the feasibility and usefulness of implementing large-scale, interactive traffic management solutions.
