The Impact of Autonomous Vehicles

What would a world without traffic lights look like? We can’t say for sure yet, but we can certainly say that the technology and infrastructure of the smart cities of the future promise a world of unprecedented connectivity. With autonomous vehicles broadcasting their location, speed, direction and destination to other carriers, traffic lights will no longer be necessary.

How Geospatial Is Used in Transportation


Geospatial technologies help you with fleet management route optimization, improving short-haul distribution and efficiently route local deliveries. With the overall cost of multi-modal shipping increasing and demands from consumers from the heavy volume of ecommerce, developing cost-efficient transportation solutions becomes an absolute necessity for both long-haul and last-mile delivery organizations. 

Driver Safety

Today, driver safety impacts more than just the individual. Making sure that the driver will safely navigate their daily schedule while maintaining service level agreements impacts both customer relations and the company’s safety record.

Geospatial technology provides the ability to collect and monitor sensor information from vehicles, analyze results and determine vehicle maintenance schedules. This is just one of many use cases that reduce costs and the company’s carbon footprint. It will also provide valuable insights into good driving habits, asset management, and support more efficient routing.

Fleet & Workforce Management

Manage fleet assets more effectively by optimizing local and long-haul routes between depots and delivery points with information such as traffic congestion, weather, bridge heights and other data which can lead to better adherence to delivery schedules. Create an integrated transport management solution across all roadways including freeways, arteries, and urban surface streets. Assign personnel to the right location at the right time with geospatial solutions.

Last Mile Delivery

Deploy your field service teams by optimizing routes so that you can reliably sustain service level agreements. Maximize performance of your fleet and mobile workforce by monitoring traffic and weather patterns thereby reducing travel time and improving key performance indicators. Employ post-trip analysis for more efficient routing and deployment based on time, tolls, fleet composition and fuel expenses.

Regulatory Compliance

Pinpoint routes in which physical and legal restrictions can impact speed and efficiency. Ensure compliance by using multiple attributes such as bridge heights, speed limits, prohibited hazardous materials and environmental zones. This can be critically important to identify routes that cross certain state, provincial, county or city boundaries.

Client Services

Optimizing public transport fleet management, such as routes for bikes, buses, trains, and metro services, is paramount to reducing traffic and improving road safety. Analyzing commuter patterns through origin-destination matrices and spatial models allows cities to provide the right services to the people who need it most. Visualize transit assets in real-time using a web mapping portal and allocate resources where necessary. 

Korem helped us evaluate the quality and coverage of HERE Maps in Taiwan and Hong Kong, confirming that these countries used a global API and that the data quality was very high across the board. That really gave us the confidence to go ahead with these launches.
