Goodyear integrates HERE location services into fleet management solution


Sharing is caring!

Goodyear has announced a tie-in with location data and technology platform HERE Technologies, whereby HERE’s location services will be integrated into the Goodyear Total Mobility one-stop fleet management solution. 

Goodyear’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses a predictive algorithm solution that helps fleets avoid up to 90% of tyre-related breakdowns. By combining that data with HERE location services, fleet operators and Goodyear service providers in Europe can pinpoint a vehicle in need of service or road assistance within a few metres and navigate them to the nearest maintenance station. 

Goodyear is also using the HERE SDK (Software Development Kit) to provide a mobile application for commercial drivers, giving access to a range of services including in-vehicle navigation, traffic alerts, transit information and fleet management features. Incorporating truck specific road information, vehicle regulations and points of interest, the HERE SDK provides vector maps in over 190 countries and in 60 languages, offering map customisation tools such as highlighting of important objects on a map by changing colours and icons, as well as editing dynamic properties of cartography objects including buildings, roads and land use. It also enables fleet managers to deliver optimised navigation routes incorporating the attributes of the roadway, legal and physical restrictions and adjusted road hierarchy and topology. 

Noting that HERE location technology brings clear added value to Goodyear’s Total Mobility customers, Grégory Boucharlat, Vice President for Commercial Europe at Goodyear added: “In the daily fleet operations, every minute counts and being able to locate a vehicle in a timely and precise manner is key to minimising downtime. In case of a service need, this can be managed in a user-friendly manner – via a mobile application for both drivers and dispatchers. Working with HERE allows us to offer state-of-the art data solutions that drive efficient and sustainable results,”
