MWC 2009: Interview with Navteq post Nokia takeover

It is about six months since Nokia acquired Navteq and I wanted to find out how the takeover was affecting Navteq. Serge Bussat VP Consumer Applications Europe for Nokia discusses some of the (non) effects of the takeover, and where Navteq is headed. Interesting advances are being made in non-automotive mapping, combined with data aggregation and distribution. A lot of this will be transparent to the user, but is a critical part of delivering dynamic content such as traffic and, in the pedestrian model, current local data such are public transport timings. Navteq are effectively becoming a platform for delivery of static and dynamic information. This provides an infrastructure on which the innovative and location sensitive new applications can be built.
