Nokia's navigation and mapping services unit Here has unveiled a new traffic forecasting product, dubbed Predictive Traffic, that the company claims can anticipate future traffic conditions in real time. The product uses a proprietary mechanism, which works in combination with real-time conditions to provide up-to-the minute traffic forecasts as far as 12 hours into the future, while giving the best travel time estimates for a given destination. According to Here, drivers using Predictive Traffic saw estimated arrival times that were up to 20 percent more accurate for journeys over 30 minutes
