HERE Speed Limits

Trust HERE’s proven expertise in data management

HERE Speed Limits database provides speed limit data for road or road segments. Maximum vehicle speeds are provided for relevant vehicles, allowing your fleet speed tracking system to know, track road data and properly plan for speed limit differences for vans versus rigs, for example.

This GIS technology enables applications to advise users against violation of traffic restrictions and warn users about maximum speed on a road. Inclusion in your GPS fleet speed tracking system can help improve arrival time estimations and allow for more choices in route selection.

Route optimization

Become the go-to routing software with HERE GIS data

The core data features for this addition to HERE Traffic include all of the relevant speed limit data that you’ll need to make proper routing information. You can restrict what is used and accessed by your vehicle speed tracking system, including:

  • Legal posted speed limit values for vehicle travel which are collected and included only when applicable to vehicles
  • Separate database for truck speed limits
  • Verification of speed limit information with road restrictions, so hazardous materials or other overriding limitations are displayed
Optimize routes for mobile asset management

Use cases using spatial data

Fleet Management

This information is a great, resource management tool to improve the safety and reliability of your fleet with speed limit safety alerts as part of both navigation and your fleet speed tracking system that accurately scores driver behavior. Learn the habits of your drivers and promote safety through recognition or awareness of violations. Speed is a general safety factor for the whole trip — not just when caught and ticketed for the violation.

Traffic Management

Understand your local environment and the impact traffic can have, from decreased productivity and increased fuel consumption to higher levels of pollution and risky areas that promote unsafe driving behaviors. Speed limit data can help you shift traffic patterns, learn where to adjust existing limits to reduce risky behaviors and guide your local municipality in changes from speed hump installation and traffic cameras to where law enforcement may need a greater presence on the road.

Routing Applications

Don’t let your drivers or customers waste time and money by sitting in traffic or by taking routes that are considerably slower due to speed restriction. Whether you’re working on a commercial solution or a GPS fleet speed tracking system, planning a route means knowing every limit a vehicle can encounter from turns, red lights and traffic to robust permitted speeds with data collected from spatial analysis. We’ve all experienced streets and roadways where speed limits change and bottlenecks either form or disperse as a result.
