US: CARMERA , a real-time, street-level intelligence platform for automated vehicles, has announced it has joined the AWare ecosystem of Renovo, a mobility software technology company. Automated Mobility as a Service (AMaaS) deployments built on AWare can now easily gain access to CARMERA’s high definition, 3D mapping solutions and participate in CARMERA’s vehicular sensor network.
High-definition 3D mapping technology is vital to the success of any AMaaS deployment. CARMERA’s maps are continually updated, allowing automated vehicles to localize positions in the world with centimeter accuracy. The constant updating also powers intelligent path planning decisions ahead of time, optimizing for navigation efficiency, pedestrian safety and passenger experience.
“Partnering with Renovo makes more than business sense for us,” said CARMERA CEO and co-founder Ro Gupta. “We share a mutual vision for what the automated mobility future looks like: democratized, open and scaled. We’re excited to be a part of the AWare ecosystem and look forward to contributing to it and playing a key role in the automated mobility deployments that will use it.”
Today, CARMERA crowdsources map data from a vehicle-based sensor network. With Renovo as a partner, CARMERA can deliver mapping services to AWare-powered fleets while gathering updated map data at the same time. CARMERA’s machine vision and geospatial data pipelines offer Renovo’s growing number of AWare partners rich texture and insight that will prove critical to automated mobility deployments. The massive data generated by these vehicles hold significant value to a wide range of customers. Both Renovo and CARMERA are committed to unlocking this value in a secure and reliable manner.
“CARMERA is a natural fit in the AWare ecosystem,” said Renovo CEO and Co-founder Chris Heiser. “We enable our customers to develop and deploy fleets of fully automated vehicles, and these deployments are made possible by an open ecosystem of best-in-class technologies. What CARMERA is doing in the high definition 3D mapping space aligns with this approach. Their platform and expertise will contribute substantially towards our mission to deliver scalable AMaaS deployments built using AWare, our operating system for automated mobility.”
CARMERA joins the AWare ecosystem along with a growing list of leading companies in the automated mobility sector including Samsung, Verizon, Velodyne LiDAR, Parsons, INRIX, and Argus Cyber Security. Recently, CARMERA announced a partnership with Voyage, a world leader in fully automated driving, to provide real-time mapping solutions for the highest mileage AMaaS deployment in the world to date at The Villages in Florida, one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States.
