Netradyne, provider of artificial intelligence (AI) technology focusing on driver and fleet safety, is partnering with HYUNDAI MNSOFT, a Hyundai Motor Group subsidiary specializing in location-based services (LBS), cloud-based connected navigation software and future high definition (HD) maps for autonomous vehicles. Both companies are providing their special expertise to develop HD maps to drive forward future vehicle technologies. HYUNDAI MNSOFT will leverage Netradyne’s dynamic crowd-sourced deep vision technologies for the development of HD Maps in its next generation vehicles.
Netradyne has been in a competitive proof of concept (POC) trail with HYUNDAI MNSOFT for close to a year, leveraging its Driveri camera to map parts of the United States in high definition. While several competitors have participated in partnerships surrounding Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)-based mapping collaborations, Netradyne’s differentiated approach ultimately stood out to Hyundai as it relies on crowd-sourced deep vision analytics—a more affordable approach to HD Map generation which ultimately offers feasible dynamic updates.
Driveri is a vision-based driver recognition safety program that captures every minute of the driving experience, delivering safety managers a complete view of their driver's day, now including advanced HD Map data capabilities. Close collaboration to develop HD maps globally between the AI research and development (R&D) and product teams at both HYUNDAI MNSOFT and Netradyne is expected to enable safer next-generation vehicles.
