HERE and Goodyear enable predictive tire maintenance

| January 6, 2022

Together, Goodyear and HERE help minimize vehicle downtime and make fleets more efficient

HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, today announced that its location services are being integrated into Goodyear Total Mobility one-stop fleet management solution. Together, they offer a suite of vehicle-to-fleet operation management tools that are fully customizable.  

The one-stop fleet management solution combines data from Goodyear’s Tire Pressure  

Monitoring System (TPMS) with HERE location services. Goodyear TPMS is an advanced sensor and predictive algorithm solution that helps fleets avoid up to 90% of tire-related breakdowns. With HERE location services, fleet operators and Goodyear service providers can localize a vehicle in need of a service or road assistance intervention within a few meters. In addition, Goodyear has been using HERE SDK (Software Development Kit) to provide a mobile application for commercial drivers.  

The HERE SDK is a set of programming interfaces that gives access to HERE’s rich portfolio of services, such as in-vehicle navigation, traffic alerts, transit information and fleet management features. THE HERE SDK enables GoodYear to track their vehicles and navigate them to the nearest maintenance stations The HERE SDK provides vector maps in over 190 countries and in 60 languages with optimized map data size to minimize download latency and to provide fast response times while still scaling to a high degree of fidelity. Map customization tools enable map content modification at various levels e.g. highlighting of important objects on a map by changing colors and icons as well as editing dynamic properties of cartography objects such as buildings, roads and land use. The HERE SDK mapping, routing and search functions incorporate  truck specific road information, vehicle regulations and points of interest. HERE Routing enables fleet managers to deliver optimized navigation routes incorporating the attributes of the roadway, legal restrictions and adjusted road hierarchy and topology.

“HERE location technology is bringing clear added value to our Goodyear Total Mobility offer and customers. In the daily fleet operations, every minute counts and being able to locate a vehicle in a timely and precise manner is key to minimizing downtime. In case of a service need, this can be managed in a user-friendly manner – via a mobile application for both drivers and dispatchers. Working with HERE allows us to offer state-of-the art data solutions that drive efficient and sustainable results,” said Alberto Villarreal, Managing Director Proactive Solutions and Fleet Europe at Goodyear. 

“We are proud to be working with one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers and mobility providers to keep trucks moving across Europe. By integrating our advanced data and location services into Goodyear easy-to-use solutions, we contribute to building a safer, more efficient and cleaner world,” said Gino Ferru, General Manager EMEAR and Senior Vice President at HERE Technologies.
