This is really interesting!! Here Maps’ connected car venture is now gathering momentum it seems. It has announced partnership with Mercedes-Benz and what it may power is not only connected cars but even autonomous, self-driving cars in future.

HERE has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz to jointly develop smart maps for connected cars and ultimately, self-driving cars. HERE and Mercedes built a 3D digital map of the route that the first Benz Patent-Motorwagen took 125 years ago from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany. Based on the particular requirements of autonomous vehicles, this map includes precise road data that go beyond traditional maps, including the number and direction of lanes, traffic signs along the route and even exact coordinates of traffic lights. While autonomous vehicles may not hit the streets commercially for several years, automakers and tech innovators alike must already think about the infrastructure and technological requirements needed to support this technology. Mercedes-Benz and HERE will continue to explore this area together.

Apart from Merc, Here has also partnered with two of the world’s leading automotive system integrators, Continental Corporation and Magneti Marelli. These partners are building on the HERE Connected Driving framework to offer individual connected products and services that go beyond navigation to meet their differing needs.

Thanks Tom for the Tip. Cheers!!

    I think this all very exciting. There’s alot of growth potential in smart cars and Here is in great market position.

    Star Trek (2009) movie becoming reality? Cars playing Nokia tune.
    They better make it happen!
