HERE joins the 5GAA
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

HERE Technologies, which specialises in mapping and location platform services, has joined the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). The latter comprises automotive, technology and telecommunications companies that are working together to develop end-to-end solutions for future mobility and transportation services.

HERE and 5GAA’s visions of the future of connected mobility are aligned. The 5GAA supports the idea that 5G will be best able to carry out critical communications for safer driving, support enhanced V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communications and connected mobility solutions, while HERE claims that it can provide the location intelligence, data and services necessary for automated and autonomous driving.

“Joining the 5GAA signifies our commitment to emerging technologies that will improve mobility around the world,” said Edzard Overbeek, HERE’s CEO. “5G will usher in the future of the automotive and telecommunications industries by enabling new in-car services, enhanced safety and autonomous driving. HERE will contribute to the 5GAA’s mission by providing a rich location context, so these emerging technologies can orient themselves in and navigate through this new world.”

“We are excited to welcome HERE into the 5GAA family. The company’s expertise in location technology will bring us closer to the next generation of automated vehicle solutions and new mobility technologies,” said Christoph Voigt, chairman of the 5GAA.
