The world depends on you.
70% of freight in the US, Australia and Europe is moved by trucks and in China that number climbs to 80%.
Trucking as we know it is transforming. Whats leading the charge in this era of digitization? Platooning.
Its vital that youre up to date on the benefits and impacts of platooning for your company and the trucking industry. As digitization continues to shape industries around the world, those in trucking who dont get on board, might get left behind.
Optimize your fleet. Discover how platooning impacts:
Driver safety and satisfaction
The overall supply chain is becoming increasingly complex. When running smoothly, this global system lowers costs and improves quality, but as more moving parts are introduced the potential for inefficiency increases.
Greater visibility is key to preventing disruptions and gaps in the supply chain - and location data is the key to enhancing visibility.
By reading this eBook, you will discover:
How location intelligence can help identify areas that are ripe for optimization
How real-time data can provide useful insights on supply chain health and help identify waste in your processes
How HERE helped a car manufacturer identify millions in savings annually by adding location awareness to its supply chain planning
As ride-hailing, e-commerce and food delivery services continue to grow, the value of curbside space is increasingly apparent. Though valuable and potentially lucrative, its original design is failing to live up to the needs of today's society. The demand for curbside space is growing, but the asset itself is fixed.
To reduce urban congestion, ensure optimal roadway performance management, encourage new mobility solutions and facilitate on-demand delivery efficiency, it is vital that the curb be better utilized.
In this eBook, gain insight from six visionaries and thought leaders with a stake in the landscape of urban mobility as they share how to better optimize curbside space.
There are many challenging tasks when developing autonomous driving features to cope with the various changes to the environment. Often lane markings are faded or are covered with snow or dirt and can be difficult for a camera-based detection system. In this report, VSI addresses the application of HD map assets to improve the safety and performance of automated vehicle features within the context of lane keeping and trajectories.
VSI has been examining applications of HD maps in our test vehicle. In a previous report, we discussed map-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) using the advised speed attributes from HEREs HD map data. In this report, we apply HEREs HD map data to a lane keeping application and examine performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.

Despite the greater frequency of extreme weather events occurring around the globe, freight still has to be delivered on time and on a year-round basis. Truck drivers often find themselves driving through rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog, ice, thunderstorms, tornadoes and high winds. While drivers aren't generally expected to stick to pre-planned routes in extreme weather, fleet managers dont really have the capacity to outline every possible alternate route in anticipation of a future hazardous weather scenario.
Data-driven route planning saves fuel, prevents accidents and improves ETAs, which is why many logistics companies are turning to advanced supply chain optimization solutions with real-time weather alerts and rerouting functionalities. Today, tech-savvy fleet managers are looking for exactly this type of tech innovations to provide them with a sharp competitive edge in an already crowded industry such as long-haul logistics.

Misplacing sizable, expensive tooling equipment inside large industrial complexes, factories and warehouses is a problem that doesn't get the attention it deserves. When essential inventory gets lost, whole production lines can grind to a halt. Indoor tracking is the optimal way to keep tabs on all mobile equipment around the factory floor.
As one of the world's leading location platforms, HERE shares insights and solutions for implementing indoor tracking in a way that can streamline and optimize production processes.
Read the eBook to discover how to:
locate inventory and assets quickly to lower downtime and improve job satisfaction
save money spent on replacing lost tools and wasted employee time
use insights into asset utilization for forecasting or maintenance schedules.
Rising urbanization and upward of a billion vehicles in operation across the world have brought unprecedented levels of traffic and congestion to our major towns and cities. On the frontline are the emergency dispatchers and responders. Every day, they face complex challenges as they attempt to navigate through congested traffic, unexpected road closures and work zones in a timely manner.
Lets face it, consumers are addicted to fast delivery.
As delivery windows continue to shrink, demand is only growing stronger. The pressure is on for online food delivery and e-commerce companies to consistently meet these ever-tightening deadlines and keep customers happy and loyal.
But what happens to your ETAs when a snowstorm strikes? Or a restaurant in your market hosts a promotion that causes demand to spiral out of control? Dont let times like these send you scrambling to stay ahead of peak demand.
Drive down click-to-door times by discovering:
The role location technology plays in food and e-commerce delivery
The benefits of dynamic routing
How to stay ahead of predictable and unpredictable peak demand

Vehicles arent making full use of map data yet, these maps can help keep cars safe in a number of ways even as they fulfill their primary role of efficiently getting vehicles from A to B.
VSI Labs recently performed a series of real-world tests to integrate HERE HD Live Map into a variety of ADAS applications. The objective was to increase the safety of ADAS by improving the functional performance of the vehicle.
In this whitepaper, discover how HERE HD Live Map:
Enabled map-enhanced adaptive cruise control (ACC), which had an advantage over regular ACC systems in areas like highway exits and school zones
Enabled map-based lane keeping that operated properly in many complicated situations where computer vision-only systems constantly failed
Enabled successful map-based lane changing in cases like lane merging, faded markings and inclement weather, where a computer vision-based system had difficulties detecting lanes
Helped to increased driver comfort during a 2,000+ mile
