HERE and the Netherlands evaluate 4G/LTE-based C-ITS road messaging system

HERE and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment are together evaluating the deployment of a cellular network-based C-ITS for improving road safety and reducing congestion in the Netherlands. The evaluation uses standard commercial 3G and 4G/LTE cellular networks as well as location cloud technology and data analytics from HERE to connect smartphones and other devices, road infrastructure and traffic management centers.

HERE, a Nokia company, and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment are together evaluating the deployment of a cellular network-based Cooperative Intelligent Transportation System (C-ITS) for improving road safety and reducing congestion in the Netherlands. The evaluation focuses on a system utilizing standard commercial 3G and 4G/LTE cellular networks as well as location cloud technology and data analytics from HERE to connect smartphones and other devices, road infrastructure and traffic management centers. The system would serve as an efficient low latency data exchange mechanism, whereby targeted information – about, for example, an accident or black ice – could be communicated to the right people at the right time and location.

HERE has agreed to support the ministry’s comprehensive program to optimize the efficiency of the country’s transportation networks through innovative solutions, with a demonstration of the technology inĀ Amsterdam during the Netherlands’ Presidency of the European Union in the first half of 2016.

HERE, a Nokia company, builds high-definition (HD) maps and combines them with cloud technology to enable rich, real-time location experiences in a broad range of connected devices – from smartphones and tablets to wearables and vehicles. Through its new Digital Transportation Infrastructure (DTI) program, HERE is also supporting the development of C-ITS, such as in Finland where it will next year begin piloting a road hazard warning system. DTI is focusing on C-ITS solutions which are easily scalable across large areas; interoperable across borders; compatible with future cellular network standards, such as 5G; and easy for people to use and benefit from.
