HERE and Mobileye announced a strategic partnership that links their respective autonomous driving technologies into an enhanced industry-leading offering for automakers. “We are building a state-of-the-art global HD map that is becoming the standard for autonomous driving and other IoT applications that need precise location-based information and services,” said Edzard Overbeek, CEO of HERE. “We are rapidly expanding this capability and I am very pleased that we can accelerate that work with Mobileye.” High-definition mapping is a key enabler for autonomous driving. Mobileye’s REM(TM) technology combined with HERE HD Live Map is critical to ensure dynamic, near real-time updates. “We are pleased to work with HERE to create a “world HD-map” standard, leveraging the combined fleet size of certain vehicle brands initially, with the objective of eventually launching an industry wide initiative.” said Professor Amnon Shashua, Chairman and CTO of Mobileye.
