Unity announced a collaborative agreement with HERE Technologies to partner on developing embedded automotive HMIs with state-of-the-art, RT3D rendering capabilities. The collaboration will also reach to work on location technology for autonomous driving, simulations, city planning and digital twins.
The partners developed a proof-of-concept application of an embedded in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI) system. Created on Unity’s platform and featuring HERE 3D city data, it showcases a futuristic, wide-screen navigation experience of a 3D map of San Francisco and demonstrates what can be achieved with the addition of game-changing HMI workflow design improvements. To date, HERE has mapped in 3D quite 70 major cities within the US, Europe and Asia with plans to eventually offer global 3D map coverage.
