RoadCloud data to be available on HERE Marketplace
RoadCloud, and HERE Technologies, announced that they have teamed up to make RoadCloud road friction estimates, road condition data and weather data available via the HERE Marketplace.
As a global location data exchange hub, the HERE Marketplace will enable RoadCloud to benefit from its global reach across industries and ecosystems and help the company to broaden its total addressable market and revenue opportunities.
Through the HERE Marketplace, we’re tapping into an extensive ecosystem of companies and developers. This will enable OEMs and smart cities to seamlessly access and integrate our data into their existing systems,Ari Tuononen, CEO at RoadCloud.
By equipping commercial vehicle fleets with high-fidelity sensors, RoadCloud continuously collects high quality data on the state of the entire road network, including road pavement quality, black ice and potential aquaplaning scenarios. Its optical sensor (infra-red spectrometer and cloud-side calibration) can also collect information on water depth on the road and provide a continuous road friction coefficient.
RoadCloud data helps OEMs to increase the safety of their Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and accelerate autonomous vehicle development by providing an accurate view of the road conditions ‘behind the next curve’. It also helps smart cities and road authorities maintain roads up to 20% more efficiently and with a 15% lower impact on the environment in both summer and winter.
