HERE is providing the City of Toronto with real-time and historical traffic data to support the city’s efforts to reduce road congestion and improve transportation services. With HERE’s solution, which includes an analytic and reporting tool provided by Iteris, the City of Toronto is developing a new understanding of transportation issues including the impact on traffic of weather conditions, construction works and infrastructure changes. Based on these observations, the city’s Big Data Innovation Team can manage the traffic in real-time and in a smart manner for the benefit of all Torontonians. HERE’s extensive coverage creates visibility to speeds on every single road including arterial roads in the city centre. Many arterial roads, for example, must accommodate a wide range of users, such as pedestrians, bicycles and cars, with different needs.
