HD Maps – Competitive Landscape
Strategic collaborations and crowdsourcing techniques hold the key for accelerated development and timely update of HD maps.
Technology companies are taking their mapping and localization efforts to the next level to support the growing development of autonomous driving technologies. This has resulted in the integration of next-generation maps, known as HD maps, into semi- and fully-autonomous vehicles. HD maps enable autonomous vehicles to remain aware of their exact location, environment and driving route, with an unprecedented level of accuracy (up to 10cm) and reliability. In-depth details on the technological aspects of HD maps along with market insights have been covered in the HD Maps and Localization report.
