Consortium working to develop cloud data standard for autonomous vehicles

“Our goal was always to find a home for this specification that is open, accessible to all, and global. This is a vital step along the path to creating a shared information network for safer roads,” said Dietmar Rabel, head of autonomous driving product management at Here. “If a car around the next corner hits the brakes because there’s an obstruction, that information could be used to signal to the drivers behind to slow down ahead of time, resulting in smoother, more efficient journeys, and a lower risk of accidents. But that can only work if all cars can speak and understand the same language.”
