Unsettled Issues on HD Mapping Technology for Autonomous Driving and
Current advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving systems
(ADS) rely on high-definition (HD) maps to enable a range of features and
functions. These maps can be viewed as an additional sensor from an ADAS or ADS
perspective as they impact overall system confidence, reduce system
computational resource needs, help improve comfort and convenience, and
ultimately contribute to system safety. However, HD mapping technology presents
multiple challenges to the automotive industry.
Unsettled Issues on HD Mapping Technology for Autonomous Driving and ADAS
identifies the current unsettled issues that need to be addressed to
reach the full potential of HD maps for ADAS and ADS technology and suggests
some possible solutions for initial map creation, map change detection and
updates, and map safety levels.
