This week Sidewalk Labs launched Coord. It’s described as a new data mobility platform that makes it easy for companies creating and offering digital navigation tools to integrate real-time information about new modes of transportation and to facilitate transactions.
We’re told that “By providing standardized data on transportation networks (i.e. tolls, curbs, parking, etc.) for the entire industry to use, Coord aims to provide seamless trip experiences for people in cities around the globe and inspire new solutions to urban mobility challenges”.
This blog post here, by Stephen Smyth, CEO of Coord, describes the platform quite well.
FYI, Stephen is not the first to use SABRE (Semi-automated Business Research Environment) as an analogy to what a lot of people are trying to build now.
