BARCELONA, Spain – Nokia has launched two new services – Nokia Drive 3 and Nokia Transport – at MWC.
Nokia Drive 3 mainly focuses on commuters. The service is able to observe and learn driving practices and routine journeys of the user. The app then updates the user with estimated journey time and traffic flow 30 minutes ahead of an expected trip, also advising on quicker routes.
It gathers this traffic data through traditional navigation sources and other users of the service, although it does not individually identify the user. However, the software is not completely finalized yet and is expected to come out in a few months.
Nokia Transport can safely be termed as sibling to Nokia Drive. This service supports user with door-to-door route incorporating data for traveling on foot or by bus, tram, train and underground.. The service features arrival and departure schedules of trains, underground tubes and buses in 24 languages for 512 cities in 46 countries. This information is collected from more than 700 major public transit agencies.
