Sensor supplier Mobileye and high-definition (HD) mapping specialist HERE have announced a new partnership, aimed at combining their technologies. According to a joint statement, the two will integrate Mobileye’s Roadbook, which gathers landmark and roadway information, with the HERE HD Live Map cloud service. Mobileye’s Roadbook data will be integrated into a layer of HERE’s real-time cloud service.
The two companies say that this will “provide an important additional layer of real-time contextual awareness by gathering landmark and roadway information to assist in making a vehicle more aware of and better able to react to its surroundings, as well as allow for more accurate vehicle positioning on the road”.
HD mapping will be critical for the implementation of autonomous vehicle technology
