HERE Maps, a German digital map company, is looking to use traffic data in new ways. Working with BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen, the aim is to generate on the spot traffic information for map users.
Imagine knowing what’s going on ahead as if you’re there. The combination of three of Germany’s biggest car manufacturers with HERE Maps is one that should work well. Cars with cameras will share video data of traffic conditions. Users will get precise information on traffic jams and accidents, quick information on changed weather conditions (Fog, rain, snow, etc.), and information about changed traffic signs, parking and events.
