Imagine a car that can let the driver know where to find a free parking space. Imagine no more. For Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz cars, which have been fitted with on-board sensors and forward facing cameras, are able to do just that by connecting to a digital mapping service called Here. As well as finding parking spaces, the cars are able to track traffic conditions in real time and avoid roadworks and other hazards. Here’s what Here’s CEO Edzard Overbeek said “Here believes that industry collaboration is essential to address the major challenges faced by road users everywhere. What we are seeing today is the technology and automotive industries coming together to create services that will elevate the driving experience for billions”. Here, here!
