What’s Happening: Continental and HERE Technologies are collaborating to deliver Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) and fuel-saving functions to all new IVECO commercial vehicles in the European Union. The functions will be delivered through Continental’s eHorizon platform, which aggregates and delivers HERE map content, with data exchange facilitated by Continental’s scalable 4G/5G telematics control unit.
Why It Matters: With the recent EU ISA regulation requiring commercial and passenger vehicles to indicate the current legal speed limit to drivers, IVECO’s compliance is ensured through the HERE ADAS Map, which delivers high-quality speed limit information for all EU roads. The map is constantly matched with the GPS signal provided by Continental’s eHorizon, which aggregates the data and delivers it to the relevant electronic control units. Additionally, the fuel-saving function helps to reduce fuel consumption by between three and five percent, contributing to environmental sustainability.
- All new IVECO commercial vehicles in the EU will use the HERE ADAS Map for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) from 2023 onwards.
- The HERE ADAS Map delivers high-quality speed limit information for all EU roads, enabling IVECO’s compliance with the EU ISA regulation.
- The eHorizon fuel-saving function, based on HERE and Continental data, helps reduce fuel consumption by between three and five percent.
- The eHorizon platform is the platform for a future ecosystem that will provide additional plug-in safety or comfort applications.
- Continental and HERE have a longstanding partnership built on trust and a common vision to provide best-in-class security features.
Bottom Line: Continental and HERE Technologies are joining forces to provide IVECO commercial vehicles in the EU with intelligent speed assistance and fuel-saving functions. The collaboration will contribute to ensuring compliance with the recent EU ISA regulation and reducing fuel consumption, demonstrating a commitment to environmental sustainability.
