Netradyne has announced a global partnership with HYUNDAI MNSOFT to develop HD maps and drive forward future vehicle technologies.
Netradyne is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology company focused on driver and fleet safety, while MNSOFT is a Hyundai Motor Group subsidiary specializing in location-based services (LBS), cloud-based connected navigation software and future high definition (HD) maps for autonomous vehicles.
Each bringing a unique skillset and expertise these two organizations aim to create a strong collaborative environment for their individual artificial intelligence and research and development teams.
HYUNDAI MNSOFT will leverage Netradyne’s dynamic crowd-sourced deep vision technologies for the development of HD Maps in its next generation vehicles.
Netradyne has been in a competitive proof of concept (POC) trail with HYUNDAI MNSOFT for close to a year, leveraging its Driveri™ camera to map parts of the United States in high definition.
While several competitors have participated in partnerships surrounding Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)-based mapping collaborations, Netradyne’s differentiated approach ultimately stood out to Hyundai as it relies on crowd-sourced deep vision analytics—a more affordable approach to HD Map generation which ultimately offers feasible dynamic updates.
DriveriTM is a vision-based driver recognition safety program that captures every minute of the driving experience, delivering safety managers a complete view of their driver’s day, now including advanced HD Map data capabilities.
