Here Parking, a connected vehicle data service with focus on location data and street maps plans to leverage Inrix for static and dynamic, on-street parking data in more than 1,100 cities, spread over 65 countries, plus off-street parking data in more than 20,000 cities in 150 countries. The combination of Inrix data and Here location services helps drivers navigating to an available spot inside a parking garage. It supports the seamless transition to a companion mobile app for continued guidance inside buildings like airports or shopping malls, then return the driver to their car. For electric vehicles (EV), drivers will be mapped to the right parking spot with appropriate charging capabilities.
The two companies also plan to collaborate around further parking solutions for automotive customers and beyond. Additionally, Inrix will leverage the Here Marketplace to further monetize their traffic analytics data sets.
The solution planned will combine the learned behaviors of Here Parking (such as price versus walking distance) with Inrix’s real-time traffic data, analytics and coverage. The software promises to guide drivers to on-street spaces with the highest probability of being available.
Here Parking offers automakers an end-to-end, location-enabled user experience throughout people’s journey with integrated indoor and parking services. The neutral, digital inventory connects parking and mobility service providers, enabling integrated parking and charging recommendations, reservations and transactions, combined with (indoor) location services.
