The latest research in Highly Automated Driving (HAD) has resulted in the introduction of autonomous vehicles without human drivers. These cars will make use of the innovative HD Live self-healing mapping technology to provide location data solution.
The name HD Live map has two significant elements in it. The HD signifies that mapping is highly precise, much more accurate, as well as more detailed than current mapping. The Live portion means that it is a live system that updates itself in the near-real time. These two components have combined to provide highly advanced, precise and present real-time location data solution based on self-healing map technology.
The advanced technology of self-healing maps enables autonomous vehicle driving through its quick and reliable system. It provides vehicles with up-to-date and trustworthy data which is highly critical for making safe and proactive driving judgments.
The self-healing process of these highly sensitive HD Live maps comprises four stages:
Observation or data collection. The intelligent vehicles equipped with super sensitive sensors like radars and cameras grab the data while driving on the roads and transmit to the HERE cloud database. This collected data includes even the minute details such as barriers, lane closures, road signs, etc.
Aggregation or fusion of data. There are many types of vehicles that have sensors at various places that travel on multiple paths on the road. They perceive and gather information differently. This process results in creating a multitude of observations with slight changes. The machine learning technology of HERE collects these observations and combines them to give one precise feature.
Creating intelligent updates. The highly sophisticated algorithms used in location data solution takes into account different variables like numerous input sources for creating innovative features and for updating the HD live maps.
Publishing or updating the users. Once the latest feature makes its way to the HD Live Map data, it is issued to all the nearby related vehicles in real-time.
This dissemination of information results in providing the autonomous vehicles with the most advanced and reliable set of location data solutions necessary for making autonomous driving safe and efficient. It enables the cars to make correct driving decisions ensuring the safety of the passengers and products it is transporting. The technology stays accurate and trustworthy on a global scale due to its cloud integration backup.
