Future driving technology development assisted by NEXTMap technology.

Intermap Technologies : 18 July, 2007  (Application Story)
Agreement between Intermap Technologies and Visteon enables joint development of automotive systems to improve driver safety using 3D road vector mapping.
Intermap Technologies has announced the signing of a joint development agreement with Visteon to provide Visteon with highly accurate 3D road geometries for the entire country of Germany. Derived from Intermap's proactive NEXTMap Europe mapping program, the data will be incorporated into the development of advanced applications of a 3D road vector map database for use in future automotive systems. The initial focus will be on predictive adaptive front lighting systems, which offers enhanced visibility for drivers at night by directing the headlamp light, before the driver directs the vehicle into the bend.



'Intermap's 3D road geometry data base will be a great use in future automotive navigation, driver assistance, and lighting,' commented Dr Markus Klein, Visteon's senior manager exterior lighting. 'Such databases provide a reliable source of information that allows the automobile's electronic system to anticipate the road ahead. Predictions of the road geometry could be a tremendous input to visualisation, performance, and advanced driver assistance applications.'



Under the terms of the agreement, Intermap will supply Visteon with 3D elevation data and geometries that the Company has already collected for the entire country of Germany. The data is currently being processed and will be delivered incrementally over the next several months. The two companies further agree to cooperate in the development of test projects and a demonstrator. The agreement also calls for ongoing market analysis to ensure that the development of specific applications meet the required data content, accuracy, interfaces, and formats necessary to enhance future automotive systems.



'Visteon's track record as a leading supplier of innovative automotive systems is second-to-none,' stated Eric DesRoche, senior vice president of Automotive and Consumer Electronics for Intermap Technologies. 'Intermap believes that with Visteon's history of gauging and meeting the needs of the automotive sector, combined with our extremely accurate and highly affordable 3D geometric data, will enable the next generation of vehicle manufacturers to create a level of driver assistance that was unimaginable just a few years ago.'
