Nokia’s Here announced a Connected Driving solution to assist car makers and in-vehicle technology suppliers to connect the car and the driver to the cloud.
Nokia on Friday said the offering includes Here Auto, Here Auto Cloud, and Here Auto Companion.
In addition, Here has improved its Here Traffic by building a new system to process data even faster and more accurately than before.
Nokia will demonstrate Here Connected Driving at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany starting on September 10.
Nokia says Here Connected Driving is expected to solve drivers’ problems such as synching routes and other personal information across their car and devices and finding the right parking spot or closest gas station.
The company claims that Here Auto is the first embedded in-car navigation experience that delivers map without a data connection. Drivers get turn by turn voice guided navigation in 95 countries and 2D, 3D and satellite map views including street level imagery.
In the future, car makers will be able to easily extend the Here Auto experience using a software development kit (SDK) to create entertainment and other applications, such as in the areas of music and social networking.
Here is working with partners such as Magneti Marelli and others to bring Here Auto to the market in the coming months.
Here Auto Cloud provides drivers with always-on access to several dynamic services such as real-time traffic updates, helping drivers avoid congested areas, road closures or blockages that occur en route.
Here Auto Companion, a customizable mobile and web application, keeps drivers connected outside of the car allowing them to synchronize their favorite places and routes across their devices so that they won’t need to re-enter their route when they get in the driver’s seat.
