Problem Statement Abstract Submission


HERE Technologies is a location data and technology company that created the first digital map over 35 years ago. Today we are the world's leading location platform company with a global footprint. We have a strong presence in the automotive industry, and we also work with leading companies across a wide range of industries, including transport and logistics, mobility, manufacturing and retail and the public sector.

In a world increasingly overwhelmed with growing volumes of data, a real-time understanding of how objects, systems and people interact with one another on the move is a critical success factor for most businesses. At HERE, we enable our customers to navigate this data-rich world by providing a new type of map - a complete, accurate and easy-to-use digital representation of the physical world.

We believe that for humanity to sustain and thrive on our planet, we must improve the utilization of the assets deployed globally with a lower environmental footprint. We need to use space, time and resources much more effectively, and location data and technology are critical in achieving this. Together, with our customers, we work on enabling better business outcomes, while realizing our vision for a more sustainable planet.
