Artificial intelligence research groups from Hyundai Mnsoft and Netradyne are going to work together to begin creating high definition maps for the next generation of cars that will rely heavily on the knowledge of the areas around them.
Hyundai Mnsoft will collaborate with AI startup Netradyne for the development of high definition maps for next-generation vehicles, the companies announced.
Hyundai Mnsoft, a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Group focused on navigation solutions, will leverage Netradyne's crowd-sourced deep vision technologies for the development of HD maps.
Netradyne, founded in 2015, specializes in using AI for driver and fleet safety. The startup recently won a proof of concept trial against rivals for the partnership with Hyundai.
Netradyne said its crowdsourced deep vision analytics for HD map generation was more affordable compared to the light detection and ranging (LIDAR)-based mapping of other companies. Its vision-based driver recognition safety program, dubbed Driveri, captures the driving experience and delivers the view of the driver to safety managers.
Hyundai said it will continue to make additional efforts to develop HD maps for safety in autonomous vehicles.
Hyundai Motor is collaborating with network giant Cisco to produce 'hyperconnected cars', which they say will be delivered in 2019.
