3D Live navigation

Mapbox 3D Live Navigation combines 3D lane models, real-time sensor information, sign data, environmental models, 3D landmark buildings, dynamic lighting conditions and weather data to deliver an accurate, more natural navigation experience. It combines map data from millions of vehicles on the road and aerial imagery into a comprehensive map with 3D lanes together and relevant sign post information. It then uses the car’s sensor information to display the lane-level location of the vehicle and adjacent vehicles, and simplifies navigation in complex intersections and multilane highways. Using realtime sensor information, Mapbox 3D Live Navigation also displays Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) hazard warnings on the map to ensure the driver’s situational awareness is consistent with the surroundings of the vehicle.

HERE and AWS to provide indoor/ outdoor positioning services

HERE Technologies and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver developers with improved performance for indoor/ outdoor positioning capabilities to track and manage any number of internet-of-things (IoT) devices.

Recently at re:Invent 2022, AWS introduced the new AWS IoT Core Device Location feature to make it possible to track and manage IoT devices without relying on GNSS/ GPS hardware. HERE Positioning is being supported by AWS IoT Core Device Location for more accurate, indoor/outdoor position estimates globally.

Hayden AI launches new tool to calculate emissions savings

Hayden AI, an artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies company, has built an emissions calculator for transit agencies to measure the environmental impact of automated bus lane enforcement (ABLE) technology. The new online tool highlights how automated enforcement keeps bus lanes clear of illegally parked vehicles, reducing emissions by increasing bus speeds and keeping buses on schedule. receives permit to deploy fully autonomous vehicle has been issued a fully driverless autonomous vehicle road test permit by the Beijing Intelligent Connected Vehicle Policy Pilot Zone. This applies to ten driverless robotaxis for testing in specific locations. They can be tested in challenging urban traffic scenarios across a 20 square kilometer area in the pilot zone in Yizhuang, Beijing.

Continental and Ambarella partnership

Continental and Ambarella, Inc., an edge AI semiconductor company, announced a strategic partnership. Both will jointly develop scalable, end-to-end hardware and software solutions based on artificial intelligence (AI), for assisted and automated driving (AD), on the way to autonomous mobility. The strategic collaboration builds on Continental’s announcement in November to integrate Ambarella’s energy-efficient System-on-Chip (SoC) family into its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

Iridium and Qualcomm collaboration

Iridium Communications Inc. has entered into an agreement with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to enable satellite messaging and emergency services in smartphones powered by Snapdragon® Mobile Platforms. Qualcomm Technologies’ new Snapdragon ® Satellite solution is supported by the fully operational Iridium® satellite constellation. Emergency messaging using Snapdragon Satellite is expected to debut starting in the second half of 2023 in premium Android smartphones launched in select regions.
