Technology: Inside a self-driving truck with Torc Robotics
HERE Technologies announced that its location services are being integrated into Goodyear Total Mobility fleet management solution. The fleet management solution combines data from Goodyear’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with HERE location services. With HERE location services, fleet operators and Goodyear service providers can localize a vehicle in need of a service or road assistance intervention within a few meters. In addition, Goodyear has been using HERE software development kit (SDK) to provide a mobile application for commercial drivers.
The HERE SDK is a set of programming interfaces that gives access to HERE’s services, such as in-vehicle navigation, traffic alerts, transit information and fleet management features. THE HERE SDK enables GoodYear to track their vehicles and navigate them to the nearest maintenance stations. Map customization tools enable map content modification at various levels e.g. highlighting of important objects on a map by changing colors and icons as well as editing dynamic properties of cartography objects such as buildings, roads and land use.
The HERE SDK mapping, routing and search functions incorporate truck specific road information, vehicle regulations and points of interest. HERE Routing enables fleet managers to deliver optimized navigation routes incorporating the attributes of the roadway, legal restrictions and adjusted road hierarchy and topology.
