HERE-parkingHERE team is doing impressive work in terms of expanding potential reach of  its Mapping data and analytics like never seen before. From working with Ford to cater to cleaner driving needs, to providing analytics for Billboards to working on next-generation of traffic control and management, HERE is really everywhere.

HERE is providing its precise maps and technology to Oakland County Connected Vehicle Task Force (OCCV) for their future city-wide connected vehicle systems. This can help in safer driving and can make finding vacant parking places a breeze. Read more below,

At ITS World Congress, HERE will also showcase an alternate and potentially fail-safe means of maintaining accurate positioning in parts of a city where there isn’t adequate GPS coverage, such as between high buildings, in parking garages or in underpasses.

With support from the Oakland County Connected Vehicle Task Force (OCCV) and Paxgrid, HERE will show, through a parking demonstration, how this technology can provide precise location positioning of a vehicle with the use of two small roadside boxes known as WAVE DSRC units, but without GPS or cellular positioning information.

HERE is providing its precise maps for the technology, which has the potential to be a key element of future city-wide connected vehicle systems. Positioning technology like this could enable vehicles – as well as bicycles and skateboarders – to be part of a grid of moving objects. The ability for vehicles to know where other drivers are at any given moment could result in safer roads and fewer collisions. It could also help drivers overcome everyday frustrations like finding vacant parking spaces.


The traffic management demonstration with SWARCO and the Oakland County localization demo Will take place on Belle Isle in the HERE lot. Both demos will take place Monday, Sept. 8 through Thursday, Sept. 11.
