Map  Matching

boost the accuracy of real-time information!

Real-time resource and truck tracking is already widely used in logistics thanks to increasing digitalization

Wenn schon Real Time, dann bitte exakt!

The transport sector is not the only clear beneficiary of evolutionary developments in mobility. Transparency gains, automated processes, and comprehensive optimization options within digital workflows offer tremendous potential – across all industries.
We’re sure you’re already fully in the loop, given that your own and other fleets constantly transmit updated location data. But how can you get the best out of this?

Unfortunately, the GPS/GPX coordinates collected by you are “noisy” and have no spatial context. GPS position data is usually off from the actual location by 5 to 15 meters on average. Simply put, the coordinates of a vehicle that is necessarily traveling by road may place it in an adjacent meadow.

With Map Matching, you can cleanse your tracking data by linking it to a digital road network. This supposedly simple “snap to road” functionality is anything but, as complex methodology is needed to work out the right link to the correct road segment.

Take advantage of a service that intelligently corrects position data and links it to a digital road network. Use methods that take into consideration the direction of travel, driving lane, speed, routes, and much more to find the most precise positions and road segments.

There’s more? There sure is – you can gain all of the benefits listed below with plug-and-play addHelix services that build on Map Matching.

Think Big! Stay one step ahead at all times with foresight.
