Before autonomous vehicles can become a mainstream mode of transportation, we need to build a foundation for safer navigation systems and smarter vehicles that help guide drivers today and train AI for tomorrow. It starts with HD mapping and precision geospatial data.
Currently, vehicle sensors have a horizon that limits how far and what they can detect. This is where our future of autonomous vehicles starts: we need to expand the horizon. The most efficient way to do so is to provide an accurate basemap.
A basemap is a living map that can be updated frequently and, if derived from DigitalGlobe’s high-resolution imagery, can supplement what sensors detect with greater detail of what lies beyond its horizon. In other words, it’s a high-definition basemap.
By leveraging advanced sources such as 30cm high-resolution imagery, 3D models, terrain data layers, or building footprint and road feature data, you can build a system that guides human drivers today but also trains AI how to use this information for autonomous driving.
Empower your organization to make a difference (and history) by leveraging advanced data sources to improve vehicle navigation and road safety.
