How Do HERE Technologies Collect Speed and Traffic Data?
HERE’s TRUE Fleet
High accuracy data is collected by the TRUE fleet using cameras and sensors like GPS and laser light radar known as LIDAR. Pictures are taken of speed limit post signs and information like road conditions, road width and traffic speed are analyzed to create HERE’s speed and traffic dataset.
Other Sources of Data Collection
HERE is in the traffic business since 2004. They collect real-time speed and travel time from 3rd party sources and probe data from participating car navigation systems.
Ways that Companies are Leveraging Speed and Traffic Data
Content On a Map
The easiest way to leverage traffic information is by rendering it on a map using color-coded lines. The data is updated every 60 seconds to ensure fresh and reliable information. This is used to analyze where the congestion is on a map, quickly and visually. Traffic statuses at specific moments can also be archived for later use.
HERE street data is used to generate optimized routes taking into account speed limits and traffic, providing accurate ETAs. The speed limit information can also be embeded in a custom application to send alterts to drivers who are driving over the legal speed limit.
