BMW, Mobileye and Here to crowd source data for autonomous vehicles

Mobileye’s EyeQ processors and software will process the data and identify valuable information from the collected data and the analysed data can be used as a dynamic layer to current and future navigation maps. It can provide BMW customers access to real-time information on traffic density, potential road hazards, weather conditions, on-street parking, and other helpful information. Autonomous vehicles will require HD maps that can identify and update changes in the environment with near real-time speed enabling very short ‘time to reflect reality’. 

The job of creating HD maps has been given to mapping and location services provider, Here. Data will be anonymised and sent to Here to be added as inputs for its HD Live Map solution, which will support connected as well as autonomous vehicles.
