Genesys International Completes Its First Largescale HD Mapping Project In North America
Genesys International Corporation Limited recently completed extensive HD mapping of road and street network for an Autonomous Driving project for a community.
The HD map with high precision navigational geometry and 360° Panoramic Imagery will bring a door-to door self-driving taxi service to the residents of the community who will have the ability to request a self-driving car to their doorstep and then travel anywhere within the bounds of the community fully autonomously.
These HD Maps are created from LiDAR source data which consists of billions of pixels or commonly referred to as a point cloud. These billions of data points are curated to extract the features to create a machine-readable image of the road as well as the entire surrounding environment - and as such, a nearly a unique “fingerprint” of every stretch of road.
Autonomous vehicles are foreseen as the future of transportation and most leading automakers and a host of new startups have joined the race towards becoming the first ones to reach there. Creating an environment for technological disruptions to make mobility more smarter have become the new normal. Amidst this, such innovations put India on the global map and provide a platform to create strong homegrown technological infrastructure.
