Helping improve the planning, routing, and delivery of all types of goods and packages, HERE Advanced Traffic Patterns leverages trillions of data points from onboard sensors, telematics systems, and mobile devices to calculate more accurate traffic speed information customized for commercial vehicles, incorporating variables such as time, day and vehicle type.
For example, in Germany, based on initial testing by HERE, the revised ETA for heavy trucks can be up to 15 minutes more accurate over a 62-mi (100 km) segment of highway, reflecting the slower driving speeds. Extrapolated, this has a huge impact on commercial truck ETAs when considering long-distance hauls.
HERE Advanced Traffic Patterns provides global coverage and is available for customers to evaluate. The data is regularly refreshed and highly responsive to recent changes.
Key features include:
- ETA Window: Estimated minimum and maximum speed of each road segment, incorporating only truck movements, creating better baselines for ETA windows, including the planning of future routes.
- Heavy Truck Traffic Patterns: Available variant for heavy trucks, enabling routers to have more accurate ETAs based on commercial vehicle speeds versus passenger vehicle speeds.
HERE provides real-time, historical, and predictive traffic information as part of its broader mapping and location-based services platform.
HERE has captured and indexed the global road network, with detailed attributes describing the characteristics of the roadways in countries worldwide. This includes information on speed limits and road rules for commercial vehicles, to precise information on the slope, curvature, and elevation of each road segment for advanced driving assistance systems and innovative routing applications.
