The automotive industry is rapidly evolving, and the march toward autonomous vehicles has begun. However, there is much to accomplish to instill driver trust before vehicles take control.
HERE HD Live Map is the most advanced cloud-based mapping asset to support connected ADAS and highly automated driving use cases.
The machine-readable HD Live Map allows the vehicle to “see around the corner” and consists of three rich content layers which are essential to automated vehicles making informed decisions on behalf of the driver.
HD Live Map is self maintaining - the layers are updated via a tile-based approach, allowing for real-time road network changes to be delivered over the air in a data-efficient manner.
The Map layer is a precise sub-lane level representation of the road network – including slope and curvature, lane marking types and roadside objects – designed for positioning, localization and automated maneuvering.
The Activity layer tracks dynamic events as they happen – including traffic conditions and hazard warnings – delivering near real-time visibility of the expanded road network, beyond the range of vehicle sensors.
The Analytics layer analyzes long-term location-based driver behavior data on each road segment to help compute speed profiles for a highly automated vehicle, providing greater comfort for the driver.
