NavInfo and Ibeo are joining forces to come up with a solution for the precise localization of autonomous cars and for road-sign detection.
NavInfo is the market leader in navigation maps, dynamic traffic information, navigation software development, and customized telematics solutions. NavInfo provides a camera system for road-sign detection and integration into the environment-detection.
The cooperation is showing the use and the benefits of HD maps for autonomous driving. Ibeo provides a generic, sensor agnostic approach for localization. By matching online perceived object features, like lane markings or reflector poles with NavInfo’s HD map content, the vehicle can localize itself highly accurate.
Furthermore Ibeo and NavInfo are demonstrating the benefits and potentials of sensor fusion of camera information with LiDAR data. Road-sign detection based on camera images are fused with highly accurate positional 3D information of LiDAR sensors. Finally the strengths of both sensors are leading to an even more precise object detection for a safer mobility.
