LG partners with HERE to develop next-gen telematics solution for driver less vehicles

LG has announced that it has partnered with HERE Technologies to develop a next-gen telematics solution for autonomous vehicles. The solution – a data communications hub – will be combination of LG’s telematics tech and HERE’s map data and location services.

“When fully developed, telematics will play a key role as the communication hub for autonomous vehicles,” LG says in a press release. “First, sensors in the vehicles ADAS comprised of cameras, radar and lidar read the surrounding environment and send the data to the cloud along with information on nearby vehicles collected via V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything).”

“All the information gathered is repeatedly analyzed and transmitted to the telematics systems of vehicles for customized driving information.”

HERE, for those who aren’t aware, was formerly a part of Nokia. In 2015, the company was acquired by a consortium of automotive companies, including Audi, BMW, and Daimler. For the complete press release, head to the Source link below.
