LG has announced that it has partnered with HERE Technologies to develop a next-gen telematics solution for autonomous vehicles. The solution - a data communications hub - will be combination of LG's telematics tech and HERE's map data and location services.
"When fully developed, telematics will play a key role as the communication hub for autonomous vehicles," LG says in a press release. "First, sensors in the vehicle’s ADAS – comprised of cameras, radar and lidar – read the surrounding environment and send the data to the cloud along with information on nearby vehicles collected via V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything)."
"All the information gathered is repeatedly analyzed and transmitted to the telematics systems of vehicles for customized driving information."
HERE, for those who aren't aware, was formerly a part of Nokia. In 2015, the company was acquired by a consortium of automotive companies, including Audi, BMW, and Daimler. For the complete press release, head to the Source link below.
