Denver, USA, July 16, 2007: Intermap Technologies Corp. announced the signing of a joint development agreement with Visteon Corporation, to provide highly accurate 3D road geometries for the entire country of Germany. Derived from Intermap’s proactive NEXTMap Europe mapping program, the data will be incorporated into the development of advanced applications of a 3D road vector map database for use in future automotive systems. The initial focus will be on predictive adaptive front lighting systems, which offers enhanced visibility for drivers at night by directing the headlamp light, before the driver directs the vehicle into the bend.
Under the terms of the agreement, Intermap will supply Visteon with 3D elevation data and geometries that the Company has already collected for the entire country of Germany. The data is currently being processed and will be delivered incrementally over the next several months. The agreement also calls for ongoing market analysis to ensure that the development of specific applications meet the required data content, accuracy, interfaces, and formats necessary to enhance future automotive systems.
