NVIDIA, HERE Collaborate on Artificial Intelligence for HD Maps

US: NVIDIA has announced to extend its collaboration with mapping company, HERE, to develop HERE HD Live Map on Wednesday. Through this partnership, the two companies are working to develop the industry-leading real-time, high-definition mapping solution for autonomous vehicles.

The news was made public by NVIDIA founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at CES 2017, Las Vegas. The same time last year the company announced its DRIVE PX platform. Today, the two companies announced to work together in a collaboration that utilizes artificial intelligence technology from NVIDIA to further enhance HERE HD Live Map, HERE’s cloud service for autonomous vehicles.

As the physical world is changing all the time, self-driving cars need to be aware of the changes so they can make better decisions. To address this need, HERE HD Live Map has been developed so it can update itself, with rich data layers assisting the vehicle in positioning, localization and strategy planning.

Creating and updating a high precision, dynamic mapping asset like this becomes a big data challenge. And hence, HERE is using NVIDIA Mapworks AI technology to help accelerate the process.

Demonstrations of localization utilizing HERE HD Live Map on the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 AI computer are being showcased in the HERE booth at CES 2017, Central Plaza, #CP-2.
