HD-maps with V2X for path planning & Situational Awareness
We believe that the best way to drive an autonomous vehicle (level 2 and above), is by integrating HD mapping with Accurate Localization, using V2X capability (with visual & cellular sensors).
The vehicle should interact with other vehicles, infrastructure or smart city services.
We have been accepted into Plug and Play accelerator batch 9, Winter program, for Smart Cities/ Mobility in the Silicon Valley. We are looking forward to talking & meeting with PNP partners
Accurate navigation based upon HD mapping & V2X modem localization
GPU & many sensors integration not required
The car interacts with environment & other cars for safety & services
We confront the long transition and co existence period
In this short video, we see two cars navigating toward destination and turn in junction, while choosing the correct lanes. We use Waze/ Google maps/ HERE WeGo application, that includes lanes. AV's will move using lane coordinates on HD-map.
We collaborate with HERE Technologies, to display dynamic HD-map of host car and other V2V enabled cars around (soon we'll present all vehicles around car, even without V2V modem, on HD-map).
Destination address is defined (like we do in Waze/ Google maps/ HERE WeGo), the AV receives a route to destination address, and use the HD-map lane coordinates to drive the car using exact lane coordinates from HDLM (High Definition Live Map). The AV defines its azimuth and speed according to its location inside road and uses speed limitation layer from the HD-map.
WE believe that HDLM will be the main enabler for driving and maintaining cruise, especially inside junctions and in bad weather, or without markings on road.
The dynamic HD-map bellow loads and parses a tile from Berlin,Germany that has 730 roads/links and ~27,000 lane segments, and two vehicles taking different turns using its lane coordinates.
This film demonstrates dynamic HD-map display with HD-map lane coordinates showing roads, lane groups, lanes and junctions. Each vehicle uses smart cruise control to receives full global path plan from address to address,driving inside lane using HD-map lane coordinates in any road and in any junctions.
Localization is achieved by V2V modem that uses GNSS satellites.
Using HD-map, the vehicle can move in any lane including inside junctions, where no visual lane markings exist.
Current ADAS navigation/ Adaptive cruise control, is based upon visual & radar sensors as primary source.
In junction, dazzling sun, very dark night, heavy fog, or when lane markings on road do not exist, or not recognized, visual sensors are useless.
