NOKIA: Transportation departments across U.S. select HERE to provide real-time traffic data

HERE technology harnesses big data to deliver traffic intelligence to
government and drivers alike

Chicago - HERE, a leader in mapping, navigation and location experiences, has recently been selected by the Georgia, Alabama and Missouri state departments of transportation (DOT) as the provider of probe-based Traffic Services to enhance driver safety and improve traffic flow management and planning strategies. HERE combines precision mapping, big data analytics and deep insights to create high quality traffic service for government transportation agencies. HERE is providing the Georgia, Alabama and Missouri DOTs with real-time
traffic data for the states' roadways. This data enables the DOTs to
communicate to drivers up-to-the-minute information about current traffic
conditions and travel times. The agencies also utilize HERE data for traffic
operations, situational awareness, and performance management, including
bottleneck identification, trend spotting, construction planning, "before and
after" traffic studies and more.

Georgia DOT (GDOT) is now the seventh state along the eastern seaboard to
utilize HERE Traffic Services. HERE was selected by GDOT through an agreement
with the I-95 Corridor Coalition, which supports transportation agencies from
Maine to Florida. The I-95 Corridor Coalition's most recent quality tests
showed HERE has outstanding overall performance for detecting congested road
conditions.

"Managing the flow of traffic on the U.S. road network is no easy task, and
HERE is glad to support transportation agencies with the data that enables
safer and more efficient vehicle movements across road networks," said Monali
Shah, Director of Global Intelligent Transportation Solutions at HERE. "As we
move to connected and automated driving, dependable and accurate real time
data will only increase in value for government agencies and drivers alike."

For more than 15 years, HERE has worked with national, state and local
government agencies to better inform drivers of changing conditions, create
safer road conditions, and ensure people and goods move smoothly through road
networks.

Since 2009, HERE has provided the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT)
with real-time and archived traffic data. MDOT has successfully leveraged the
HERE dataset to reduce overall system congestion through the execution of
data-driven approaches to resource allocation (e.g. snow plow routes during
storms), providing reliable and up-to-date traveler information to the
public, and strategically prioritizing construction projects.

"Safety is the top priority at the Michigan Department of Transportation
(MDOT) as we focus our efforts on improving traffic flow," said MDOT Director
Kirk Steudle. "This data enables a safer road network and helps the
environment because reducing congestion also reduces emissions."

HERE has alsopartneredwith MDOT, the University of Michigan, and many other
industry stakeholders to test connected and automated driving technologies at
theMcityfacility in Ann Arbor, Michigan. HERE is creating the precisionHD
Mapof Mcity, which is an indispensable component to making highly automated
driving a reality.

at the Missouri Department of Transportation.

During the upcoming AASHTO Annual Meeting in Chicago (Sept. 24-28), HERE will
showcase the HD Live Map and our leading traffic products, including Real
Time Traffic, Predictive Traffic and Traffic Analytics. To learn more about
