Upcoming BMW models better their maps with new tech

Upcoming BMW models better their maps with new tech

BMW is working towards collecting data that will keep their maps updated on their upcoming cars. 

The carmaker is in the process of equipping some of their models with the Mobileye Road Experience Management system. Though there’s no confirmation about which cars and regions get this feature first, it is rumoured that the system can gather information using BMW's current camera-based driver assist programs. The Mobileye captures data through the vehicle’s camera while it spots objects like road signs, kerbs, and landmarks. It then uploads the information onto the cloud. It is believed that the system converts a camera shot into bits of data; about 10 kilobytes per km.

Everybody knows that systems like these are significant in accelerating the progress of autonomous driving. In fact, real-time data will also help autonomous cars know when there’s a road diversion or when a street is closed for construction. BMW highlights that this data can help vehicles, with autonomous capabilities or not, receive updates on weather, traffic situations and hazards.

Stay tuned to CarWale for more information on BMW’s plans in the months to come.
