Introduction

HERE Tracking is a fast and flexible IoT location platform that makes it quick and easy to add location awareness to your products.

HERE Tracking exposes a set of REST APIs and client libraries to enable location tracking and geofencing for a variety of device form-factors including small-footprint (small memory and processing power) devices. HERE Tracking also includes end-user applications on mobile and web to be used as reference apps to demonstrate the product capabilities.

Shadows

Manage the configuration for your devices and access their reported geolocation and environmental data.

Traces

Access current and historical data that a device collected.

Geofences

Create geofences that generate events and trigger notifications when a device enters or exits a geofence.

Sensors

Create sensor rules that generate events and notifications when get triggered by a reported device sensor value.

Rules

Create rules that generate events and notifications when get triggered by the device behaviour.

Associations

Manage associations between devices and rules, geofences and sensor rules.
