Why self-driving vehicles depend on self-healing maps
Self-driving vehicles need to see through buildings, around corners and 20 miles in advance to maneuver safely. Success is contingent upon map learning.
As our digital and physical lives become increasingly inter-connected, our map of the world is rapidly changing. With every connected device or sensor capable of generating and sharing its context and location, it is data that will connect this complex new world. The question is how do we make better use of that data and transform it into useful services for people and organizations – all in real-time?
Our answer is the HERE Open Location Platform.
“HERE is a company in the middle of a wave of transformation. It is becoming a stronger player in the mapping and navigation field, and is building the foundations to establish itself as a digital platform provider of data services built on location information. HERE keeping pace with, and in some cases moving ahead of the changes occurring in the location and mapping industry.”
"HERE’s automotive services are uniquely synergistic. Its cloud offering effectively complements its edge play. HERE seamlessly connects the edge to the cloud through its intelligent in-vehicle software and its Open Location Platform, which enables and extends numerous global and diverse clients’ end-to-end solutions."
"The location ecosystem continues to evolve from two sharks HERE & Google to a Whale (HERE) and a Shark (Google) as HERE widens the gap with rivals. HERE’s biggest strength is its score of partnerships from component players, internet companies, technology companies to automotive OEMs."
