Nokia Location & Commerce announced today that it will provide modified pan-European reference data to Ford Europe.
Idea here is that Nokia as world’s largest maps company provides needed data for Emergency Assistance technology that Ford is implementing to it’s cars. Emergency Assistance technology by Ford identifies the location of the driver in need of help and also automatically selects the right language to alert local emergency service
We are confident that solutions enabling fast and efficient connection to emergency services could help speed up response times and are delighted that Ford selected our data as part of the development of its Emergency Assistance technology. With a consistent global specification, the reference data can be easily maintained or expanded to additional countries. It could also be further adapted for other geofencing applications using the existing set of map conversion tools. - Bruno Bourguet, Senior Vice President of Sale and Business Development, Nokia Location & Commerce
One more win for Nokia Location & Commerce that has been cranking up some great deals lately.
