HOW DO HD MAPS SUPPORT AUTONOMOUS DRIVING SAFETY?
Are self-driving cars safe? As the automotive industry moves towards higher levels of automation, it’s important for the answer to this question to always be yes. At TomTom, it’s our vision to create a safe, connected and autonomous world – and a big role in making autonomous driving safer is played by ADAS and HD maps. Maps – ADAS and HD – are one of the four pillars of autonomous driving. Together with onboard sensors, driving policy and actuators, they form the technology that enables automated and autonomous driving. HD maps specifically improve localization to centimeter-level accuracy and sensor perception, which leads to safer path planning by automated driving systems. READ MORE
