Arrival selects HERE Technologies to power in-vehicle Human-Machine Interface
Arrival, the company reinventing the automotive industry with its entirely new approach to the design and assembly of electric vehicles (EVs), has selected HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, to power its in-vehicle Human-Machine Interface (HMI) navigation solution.
Arrival has been developing its own proprietary hardware, software and robotics since 2015 and is using these technologies to enable electric vehicle production through its unique Microfactories, which are small-footprint, low CapEx and can be deployed quickly to serve local communities. Electric vehicles benefit from predictable routes and overnight depot charging, fitting seamlessly within commercial fleets. With the rise of e-commerce, accelerated by COVID-19 and the demand for same-day-delivery, the global market for commercial fleets is expected to grow. Tackling the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions, Arrival’s integrated transportation ecosystem provides the tools for cities and businesses to achieve their sustainability goals.
HERE’s software development kit (SDK) goes well beyond standard mapping, routing and search functionalities. It provides real-time visibility into the geographic location of mobile assets and offline capabilities that include route calculation, location search and turn-by-turn navigation. Thanks to a highly compressed data format, HERE SDK provides fast upload times and a seamless user experience that can be customized by incorporating private points of interest (POIs).
