Mapbox, the leading maps and location platform, recently introduced Mapbox 3D Live Navigation, which combines 3D lane models, real-time sensor data, sign data, environmental models, 3D landmark buildings, dynamic lighting conditions, and weather data to make navigation more accurate and natural, thus offering drivers a visually stunning and comprehensive navigation experience.
Mapbox 3D Live Navigation integrates feedback data generated from millions of vehicles on the road and aerial images to create a comprehensive map with 3D lanes and appropriate signpost information. It then utilizes the car sensors' info to show its route and other vehicles' precise locations, making it much easier to get around at complex intersections and highways with multiple lanes. Using real-time sensor data, it also shows Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) hazard warnings on the map, thus making sure that the driver is always aware of what's happening around his vehicle.
Alerts for weather are integrated, and scene lighting, sun, and shadow angles are accurate to the time of day with actual local conditions, delivering visual orientation cues reflecting the real world. These advanced rendering features are combined with a carefully chosen level of detail to provide drivers with instant legibility and decreased visual context switching, providing an information-rich visual experience while eliminating distractions. In addition, road weather alerts offer drivers up-to-the-minute information on changing conditions, helping them to adjust routes and make more precise preparations.
Mapbox's high-resolution 3D models for significant landmarks and buildings help improve map orientation and view more details, which makes it easier to find entrances, parking spots, and charging stations. Mapbox 3D Live Navigation also makes EV charging easier by combining high-precision EV charge point data with parking-aisle-level navigation, making it easier for drivers to get to charging stations without having to go through a lot of trouble.
Mapbox is a real-time location platform for new-generation location-aware businesses, delivering services to customers in logistics, automotive, social, travel, e-commerce, manufacturing, farming, and other industries on a global scale. Mapbox is the only platform that offers businesses a complete set of tools to power the navigation of people, packages, and vehicles worldwide.
