Renovo and HERE have entered into a partnership to deploy open interfaces for highly and fully automated vehicles.
HERE, the Open Location Platform company that enables people, businesses and cities to harness the power of location. Renovo builds AWare, an Operating System for Automated Mobility. AWare merges software, data analytics, and automotive-grade safety systems into a unified platform that enables a growing range of technologies and services to be combined in Automated Mobility fleet deployments.
The companies believe an open-standards approach will fuel greater interoperability and data exchange across the transportation ecosystem, boosting safety, efficiency and comfort for passengers.
In the first phase of their collaboration, the companies will be working on a new technology interface to maximize the utility of sensor data generated by fleets of automated vehicles in the ‘self-healing’ of highly precise maps.
The companies intend to make the interface available for fleets of highly automated vehicles powered by Renovo’s AWare operating system, enabling them to provide data that can be used to update a service such as HD Live Map, the mapping service for automated vehicles from HERE.
This service uses different types of sensor data to identify change in the real world and provide a highly-precise, continuously-updating map across the road network. An automated vehicle equipped with HERE HD Live Map knows exactly where it is and has a better understanding of what lies ahead and what it should do in different scenarios.
