BMW & Mobileye To Integrate REM Data Generation Tech In BMW Models

Mobileye’s Road Experience Management (REM) data generation technology will be integrated into new BMW Group offerings coming to market in 2018.

What that means is that Mobileye will get access to considerable crowdsourced real-time data generated by vehicles equipped with camera-based Advanced Driver Assist System technology — something that is seemingly a necessity for the achievement of fully autonomous driving technologies.

The data will, essentially, be used to create high-definition maps for use by autonomous vehicles, amongst other things.

The press release provides further information:

“BMW Group sensor data can be merged with data from different automakers, resulting in a larger scale of data used to create Mobileye’s Global RoadBook (GLRB), to support and rapidly update HD maps with highly accurate localization capabilities. Autonomous vehicles will require HD maps that can identify and update changes in the environment with near real-time speed enabling very short ‘time to reflect reality’.

“The cameras that enable to collect anonymized, fleet-wide data act as intelligent agents that, through Mobileye EyeQ processors and software, can identify valuable information that is sent to the cloud in a highly compressed form (10 kilobytes per kilometer). This data can be used to add a dynamic layer to current and future navigation maps, enabling BMW Group customers to access true real-time information on traffic density, potential road hazards, weather conditions, on-street parking, and other helpful information.”

This data will be transferred to the mapping and location service HERE, with the intent being to help with the improvement of the tech through the real-time updating of HERE HD Live Map and the Open Location Platform.

As a reminder, BMW is currently aiming to bring “highly automated driving” to market in 2021 or so with the iNEXT model.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...
