Partners Advance Location Services AVs

In the interest of building safe, reliable, and efficient autonomous transportation systems, HERE Technologies and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. (hereafter called “MELCO”) partner on developing integrated technologies for autonomous vehicles (AVs). According to their preliminary agreement, the companies aim to offer services to support cars with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) on the road today right through to the fully autonomous vehicles of the future. The companies’ initial focus is on providing services that, for example, would support smart lane-level guidance for vehicles based on real-time information about traffic conditions and incidents. They will also evaluate how information from vehicle sensors gathered by MELCO can be utilized for high-definition map updates.

 

Accordingly, the companies intend to draw on their respective technologies, including: HERE’s mapping infrastructure for autonomous cars, HD Live Map; HERE’s Open Location Platform; and MELCO’s precise positioning technology, High-Definition Locator, for data processing, location analytics and the creation of new services. HERE and MELCO intend to enable services initially for automotive customers in North America and Europe, before making them available more broadly. The companies will also work together to define possible services that target other industries beyond the automotive market.
