For those who are unfamiliar, the automated mapping technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) to quickly create precise, accurate three-dimensional maps.
For instance, Mitsubishi Electric’s MMS provides 3D positional information of roads and roadside structures with an absolute precision within 10cm or less, which is collected via a system consisting of laser scanners, cameras and GPS antennas, while driving. Only necessary information, such as road markings and traffic signs, is extracted from laser-point clouds and camera data measured and collected by MMS.
Artificial intelligence (AI) improves the precision of extraction and recognition of the only data necessary, resulting in some 10 times faster map creation compared to industry-standard manual creation. The system can cost less than conventional methods.
