The mapping and traffic information company HERE has announced that, two years after its first-generation release at CES 2016, it has mapped 555,555km of trails across North America and Western Europe, chartered to sub-meter accuracy.

The company also predicts it will have more than a million kilometres mapped later this year, including lane configurations with lane markings, lane centre lines, speed limits and shoulders and a compete layer of roadside objects and 3D obstacles for vehicle localisation. 

HERE says its build out of HD Live Map is tightly aligned with the product development of numerous car manufacturers across the world. “As brands begin to introduce autonomous driving capabilities into new models, HERE is now the de facto global standard in mapping for cars of the future,” the company says in a statement.
