Ultimately, Intermodal Park and Ride assists vehicle drivers to use Park and Ride services to reduce congestion in Urban Areas and lower emissions; resulting in an environmentally friendly solution.

 

HERE Tracking

Version 1.0

 

HERE Tracking is a horizontal PaaS cloud product designed to address location tracking problems for a wide range of Location IoT industry verticals.

HERE Tracking exposes a set of REST APIs and client libraries to enable location tracking and geo-fencing for a variety of device form-factors including small-footprint (small memory and processing power) devices. HERE Tracking also includes end-user applications on mobile and web to be used as reference apps to demonstrate the product capabilities.

  • Generate credentials to connect devices to HERE Tracking using TLS 1.2 and SHA256
  • Seamless indoor/outdoor positioning of low-profile devices using WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS
  • Create and manage geofences and generate notifications when a device transitions into or out of a geofence
  • Access a historical record of device locations and configuration through time

Starter Edition version 3.6:

  • We added support for Discovery search requests using a center location and radius.
  • We added the ability to filter Places autosuggest results by type, such as by address or category.

Premium Edition version 3.6:

  • We added the Electronic Horizon feature, which provides a view on the road network ahead of the vehicle and predicts the most probable path and other possible side paths. For these paths it provides content such as Traffic signs, Curvature geometry, Height and slope data and Lane information that can be used for developing driver assistance features.
  • We added support for the Android emulator. For more information, see Android Emulator Support in the Developer's Guide.
  • We added the ability to change route colors and traveled navigational route colors using the MapRoute class.
