Find your way with automatically generated high resolution digital maps
Hi-precision digital maps are a key pillar for smart mobility systems. They enable advanced in-vehicle assistant systems including semi- or full-autonomous vehicles. Moreover, they provide the basis for a highly integrated mobility solutions among all stakeholders.
Fraunhofer FOKUS is researching on the generation, management and maintenance of such maps. On the one hand hi-precision maps address individual vehicles to enable automatic vehicle control. In this context, Fraunhofer is mainly interested in information fusion among multiple vehicles using low cost sensors, exploiting the capabilities for V2X communication technology and a powerful backbone.
On the other hand, FOKUS develops solutions to integrate dynamic information in real-time such as public transport information, 3weather information, road blockings and congestion information. The concept to integrate and exchange the information is basis to the LDM++, an extension to the Local Dynamic Map.
