Here Mobility has launched its HERE Mobility SDK. The SDK aims to democratize the mobile ecosystem by offering developers access to mobility services and map & location services. The SDK was originally beta tested by a select group and then tested through various hackathons.
Carpools are a great option for the daily commute to the office, especially for those who want to save a substantial amount on fuel or just simply want to minimise their carbon footprint by using their vehicles less. Carpoolworld is an application that works to help commuters and other travellers find others in nearby locations with similar transportation needs, to make ride-sharing arrangements. Carpoolworld also provides the Carpoolworld API that gives developers the option to create applications using this data.
Bike sharing, a common form of collective transportation outside the US, has started gaining traction in the US. A recent addition to the bike sharing scene, viaCycle, approaches the market differently than its competitors and hopes that its innovative approach will make it the Zipcar of bike sharing. viaCycle differentiates itself by combining the community aspect of bike sharing with "cutting edge IT." Within the IT competitive advantage lies the viaCycle API available for third-party app development.
