Real Time Data Sharing Can Help You Find Your Next Parking Spot, And More

Sep 27, 2016 05:03 AM EDT | Staff Reporter

Cars are getting smarter. However, there's only enough that your car can let you know without anyone else's input. It would be a pleasant thing if cars consistently shared supportive driving information? 

Here agrees.

In the next year, Here is planning to launch a service that will enable cars to consequently share ongoing information to enhance the driving experience for everybody. Vehicles (vehicles using Here services such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi) will utilize their camera, GPS, and other sensors to offer subtle elements on spaces for parking, movement conditions, and street perils. You'd realize that a spot for parking has just cleared up, or that the heavy rain is slowing down the traffic.

The information on the traffic will be taken from the GPS data from the car. An aggregate information from all the cars on the road could help identify the traffic levels, its speed, and other information which can prove to be valuable while driving.

This system will be accessible from next year - 2017, and after it's fully launched and tested with success, the service would extend its hand to German cars and spread across the market. 

Also, Here knows about the potential security issues. It's making a commitment that the information it will gather will be anonymous, making it difficult for singular drivers to be identified. Here's answer won't provide a genuinely extensive perspective of the street until enough cars are meandering the roads. It will be interesting to see how secure can Here make the whole system.

This could mean that Here is actually not trying to work on its information with mere guesswork. Until and unless sufficient information is available in its database (which shares data from other cars on the road), it will not display any suggestions - safety and accurate information is, and should be, a prime concern.

Until the technology comes out, here is a tutorial on how to park a car:
