HERE Marketplace to host RoadCloud data 

HERE Technologies and RoadCloud recently announced that RoadCloud road friction estimates, road condition data, and weather data will now be available via the HERE Marketplace.

The HERE Marketplace is a worldwide location data exchange hub which will enable RoadCloud to profit from its global reach across industries and ecosystems and help the corporate to expand its total addressable market and revenue opportunities simultaneously.

RoadCloud continuously collects top quality data on the state of the whole road network by equipping commercial vehicle fleets with high-fidelity sensors. Its optical sensor (infra-red spectrometer and cloud-side calibration) also can collect information on water depth on the road and supply endless road friction coefficient.

RoadCloud data helps original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to extend the security of their Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and accelerate autonomous vehicle development by providing an accurate view of the road conditions ‘behind subsequent curve’.

It also assists smart cities and road authorities in maintaining roads up to 20% more efficiently and with a 15% lower impact on the environment in both summer and winter.

 As mentioned in the press release, Ari Tuononen, CEO at RoadCloud said that through the HERE Marketplace, they’re tapping into an in-depth ecosystem of companies and developers. This may enable OEMs and smart cities to seamlessly access and integrate their data into their existing systems.

Sanjiv Ghate, vice chairman and Head of knowledge Monetization & Marketplace at HERE Technologies said that the HERE Marketplace aims to offer companies and developers the chance to optimally utilize location data at an unprecedented scale and also accelerate data-driven innovation.

They welcome RoadCloud as a provider of highly relevant data for the event of safety-critical services for the automotive industry and beyond.
