HERE Powers Location-Based Services for Volvo Cars

HERE Technologies has signed a multi-year map data agreement with Volvo Car Group. Under the agreement, HERE will serve as a map data provider for off-board cloud services that require knowing the location of cars and managing information in relation to geographical locations.

Volvo Cars plans to deploy the services to enhance vehicle performance and the driver experience. Volvo Cars is developing the services in its own cloud environment.

“We are delighted to serve Volvo Cars and its customers,” said Stefan Hansen, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia at HERE Technologies.

HERE is the world’s leading provider of mapping for vehicles. The company continuously updates its automotive-grade map to keep pace with an endlessly changing physical world, making millions of changes every day and providing the ability for companies and organizations to access the map and location services via its platform.
