HERE Technologies, the location data and technology platform, and Yunex Traffic, a Siemens Business and a leader in traffic management software and infrastructure, announced an expanded partnership focused on providing cities and public transportation agencies with proactive traffic management solutions for the urban mobility market.
As Europe starts to open-up, traffic congestion is once again on the rise and in some cases overshooting pre-pandemic levels. At the same time, the rail industry is offering a flexible ticketing system for employees who go to the office only a couple of days a week. To help cities and public transport companies tackle the challenge of movement flows that have become more difficult to predict with the pandemic, Yunex Traffic and HERE Technologies have joined forces.
The partnership focuses on:
- Expanding Yunex’s UK Journey Time as a Service (JTaaS) into markets globally with integrated HERE Real-Time Traffic and corridor travel time information.
- Availability of Yunex traffic light and traffic count data on HERE Marketplace for the development of “green wave” technology, where a vehicle adapts its speed to maintain a continuous flow across several intersections.
- Development of “digital twin” tools and advanced perception technologies that enable v2X collision avoidance systems.
- Enhancements of Sitraffic Symphony, Yunex Traffic’s traffic management platform.
The expansion of Yunex’s UK Journey Time as a Service (JTaaS) comes following the integration of HERE Real-Time Traffic and corridor travel time information. Yunex Traffic can now monitor journey times without the need for additional on-street hardware such as ANPR cameras with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi sensors. This solution is already being used by eight public authorities in the UK – including Bedford Borough, Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole, Hampshire County, and Warrington Borough Councils – with several others in a piloting phase.
