HERE Automotive Services
HERE Automotive Services deliver advanced in-vehicle navigation experiences to drivers via connected embedded navigation systems. The portfolio of Automotive Services embraces four core products: Parking, Fuel, Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations and Weather.
- Parking Service provides details on parking facilities in the requested area, such as name, address, opening hours, prices and restrictions.
- Fuel Service offers fresh fuel price information, as well as fuel station details such as address, brand, fuel types and opening times.
- EV Charging Stations Service allows to find EV charging stations along the route and indicates the types and number of connectors available at those POIs, as well as their contact information.
- Weather Service informs the drivers about current and upcoming weather conditions - regardless of their location.
The Automotive Services APIs are powered by the HERE Location Cloud, which aggregates information coming from both regional and local content providers. The HERE Location Cloud not only ingests external content but also improves the accuracy of data by matching it with its own map. The combination of these techniques with ground-truth testing allows us to deliver unmatched content quality which we are continuously improving. Finally, our continuous improvements of data quality and service coverage enable us to be the preferred partner of choice when it comes to connected services.
