Toronto selects HERE for smart city and traffic mitigation initiative

The City of Toronto announced today that it will utilize HERE location technology to analyze traffic patterns and further establish the City's data-driven approach to improving transportation network performance. HERE is providing the City with real-time and historical traffic data which will be used to better understand travel conditions and the impact of weather, 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.
