The leading global provider of high-definition maps for autonomous vehicles, HERE Technologies, has opened a new R&D facility in Boulder, Colorado. The site brings together experts in geospatial engineering, machine learning and data science to work on cutting-edge processes that enable HERE’s HD Live Map to “self-heal”. This is where crowdsourced data from live car sensors are used to validate and update the high-definition map, keeping it constantly fresh and accurate. HERE HD Live Map is essential for the overall safety and comfort of autonomous driving. The vehicle relies on the map to localize itself on the road, as well as to better understand the road environment beyond the range of its near-field sensors for strategic path planning. The HERE Boulder team will work closely with colleagues across the world, from Berkeley, California to Berlin, Germany, and join the company’s more than 8,500 employees across 56 countries.
