Mapbox debuts 3D Live navigation to power the user experience of next-generation connected vehicles
Mapbox, the leading maps and location platform powering a new generation of location-aware applications, announced Mapbox 3D Live Navigation that 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 and visually stunning navigation experience.
Mapbox 3D Live Navigation 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 real-time 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.
