Dear Customer,

 

please be advised that a new release (D103) of the HERE Location Suite is now available on the Production environment (PRD).

 

This email includes release notes that describe the improvements to the services in the new release. This release includes updates of: Routing API, Public Transit API China, Fleet Telematics Waypoints Sequence, Fleet Telematics API, Mobile SDKs for Android and iOS, Map Data and Mobile SDK User Interface (UI) kit.

 

You will find all API documentation on the Developer Portal.


Management Summary

The release highlights are:

  • Real time truck parking availability and Routing improvements in Fleet Telematics API
  • New HERE Mobile SDK release with new truck specific ETA calculation model, enabled Turn by Turn guidance for bike routes and other enhancements
  • New Map Data for Mobile SDK release, including update of Speed Limits in Spain and Core POIs in India
  • New HERE Mobile SDK User Interface (UI) kit.

 

For more detailed information about the major improvements of the HERE Location Suite Services and Products, see the sections below:


 

Routing API

Version 7.2.103

 

  • Fixed the issue of relaxing truck restriction penalty on routes starting or ending at a junction.

 

Fleet Telematics API

Version 2.5.15

 

  • Routing can avoid Environmental Zones (parameter &excludeZoneType=environmental) depending on vehicle type, emission class, fuel type, weight and time of day/weekday.
  • Routing considers signposted Preferred Truck Routes for general trucks and for Australian B-Double road trains (&vehicleCat=bdouble).
  • Real time truck parking availability can be searched and retrieved, aggregated from 3rd party live content (limited coverage to some US states only, requires additional licensing)

 

HERE Android SDK

 

Starter Edition version 3.11:

  • Added possibility to specify padding around the edges of the map. The map will continue to fill the entire container, but object positioning, map transformation, and camera movements will behave as if it has been placed in a smaller space.

 

Premium Edition version 3.11:

  • Decreased map data usage when Traffic is on
  • Implemented avoidance of odd/even and time-dependent environmental zones
  • Implemented Turn-by-Turn guidance for truck routes in online and offline modes
  • Enhanced difficult turns avoidance for trucks by excluding sharp turns from a route
  • Added possibility to enable/disable map matching in Positioning Manager
  • Added possibility to specify padding around the edges of the map. The map will continue to fill the entire container, but object positioning, map transformation, and camera movements will behave as if it has been placed in a smaller space
  • Introduced fuzzy matching logic that allows the creation of an optimal route that passes over a waypoint within the specified radius. This might be useful when a waypoint is only known approximately (e.g. Drag-and-drop, estimated coordinates)
  • Introduced junction snapping logic that allows moving a waypoint onto the junction within the specified radius. It allows eliminating short maneuvers, e.g. Turn left and follow for 3m
  • Introduced selective matching logic that allows moving a waypoint to a segment that is visible on the lowest zoom level within the specified radius. Selective matching behavior is useful for Drag-and-drop and snapping to more important streets
  • Added new API that allows customizing text color for maneuver enumeration

 

HERE iOS SDK

 

Starter Edition version 3.11:

  • Added possibility to specify padding around the edges of the map. The map will continue to fill the entire container, but object positioning, map transformation, and camera movements will behave as if it has been placed in a smaller space.

 

Premium Edition version 3.11:

  • Decreased map data usage when Traffic is on
  • Implemented avoidance of odd/even and time-dependent environmental zones
  • Implemented Turn-by-Turn guidance for truck routes in online and offline modes
  • Enhanced difficult turns avoidance for trucks by excluding sharp turns from a route
  • Added possibility to specify padding around the edges of the map. The map will continue to fill the entire container, but object positioning, map transformation, and camera movements will behave as if it has been placed in a smaller space

  • Added new API that allows customizing text color for maneuver enumeration

 

Map Data for Mobile SDK

Version 8.30.94.154 (March 2019)

 

  • Average speed cameras have been added to the map. Now our clients can use this information to provide visual/audio notifications or to render them on the map. 3793 cameras were added for the whole map.
  • The penalty of exiting the highway has been equalized with exiting one to avoid following inconvenient routes (Previously, exiting the highway had bigger cost than entering one, which in some occasions would force the user to go for a long detour instead of taking the first exit to the destination point).
  • Algorithm responsible for building a route geometry has been improved to avoid visual gaps in the middle of the route.
  • Removed redundancy in the data representation of time restrictions in routing zones.
  • Building and landmarks coverage expansion and improvements in multiple countries: Philippine, Singapore, Switzerland, Romania, Belgium, Germany and United Arab Emirates
  • Updated 2D Generalized Signs to 2019Q1 data

 

HERE Mobile SDK User Interface (UI) kit

Version 2.1.0

 

  • Fixed and updated translations.
  • Layout changes for guidance UI components based on the latest guidelines:
    • Removed outer spacing for more flexibility in custom layouts.
    • We added multi-line support for the GuidanceManeuverView and the ManeuverItemView.
    • States were added for the GuidanceManeuverView (you can now switch between no-data, updating and normal states).
    • The GuidanceManeuverView is now orientation independent.
    • We fixed various layout issues.
  • We provide new development applications as source code to verify and showcase the component states.
  • The HERE SDK 3.10.1 was integrated and tested (please note, the library still needs to be added via the libs folder(s) for Android; on iOS a pod spec is available, see cocoapods.org/pods/HEREMapsUI).
