LG Electronics said on Dec. 27 it has inked an agreement with mapping solution provider HERE Technologies in the latest move to tap deeper into the self-driving automobile solutions.
The Korean company said HERE, which provides navigation solutions to some 100 million automobiles around the globe, is a suitable partner for LG, which recently set its eyes on what it calls “connected cars.”
HERE’s HD Live Map is capable of distinguishing street signs, street lamps, and other obstacles on roads, a key technology needed for autonomous vehicles.
“Through the cooperation with HERE, which holds top-notch mapping technology, we will set a new standard of the communication solution installed in self-driving cars,” LG said.
