US: Continental, the international automotive supplier, and HERE have announced that their teams will intensify their collaboration in bringing the Connected Car to life, focusing on Electronic Horizon, future Automated Driving functionalities and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
The work will begin with the development of highly precise map technology for Continental's Electronic Horizon platform that will enable your vehicle to continuously determine its position on the road to within 10-20 cm (3-8 inches). The maps will include a range of road information, including lane markings and connectivity, speed limit changes, no passing signs and more. Using this information, all types of vehicles will be able to comfortably react to shifting circumstances, such as changing speed limits, automatically. The technology will enable enhanced anticipatory driving, leading to improvement for drivers in the areas of comfort, efficiency and safety.
"Providing an accurate, precise and timely representation of the roads and the vehicle environment is essential not only for Automated Driving but for all areas of advanced driving solutions. With our superior HERE LiDAR technology, rich data analytics and ability to integrate "dynamic" events, HERE is uniquely positioned to provide the highly accurate and always-fresh 3D maps required to enable such an experience." said Ogi Redzic, Vice President, Connected Driving, HERE.
