Join us at the Volvo Trucks Hackathon Challenge in Antwerp

By Richard Süselbeck | 06 February 2017

Trucks! Trucks are great. They bring you all your stuff and you can do epic splits on top of them. HERE loves trucks, and so the HERE APIs have some pretty cool features created specifically for trucks, the people who own trucks, the people who drive trucks and the people who do epic splits on top of trucks.

For example, did you know that the HERE Routing API has support for truck restrictions? Big truck? Heavy truck? Tall truck? Afraid you’re going to be that guy?

No problem, just give the HERE Routing API some information about your truck and it will return a route that is safe for you to drive! Got a trailer? Hazardous materials? We got you covered. Our special map tiles show you truck-relevant information and our Places API can find you a place to fuel up and catch some sleep after a hard days truckin'.

If you too like trucks and want to try our great truck features, we have some exciting news for you!

We’re proud to announce that we are joining Volvo, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of trucks and buses, at the Volvo Trucks Hackathon Challenge in Antwerp Belgium on February 17-18 and we want you to join us!

You can even win various prizes, including a 2 day trip to the Volvo Trucks HQ in Gothenburg, Sweden. For more information and details on how to sign up, please see the Volvo Trucks Hackathon Challenge website. Epic splits optional.
