Polestar 3 to be the first car in the world to feature Google’s HD map
“These developments are the direct result of our strong relationship with Google and show the advantages of integrating the innovative Android Automotive OS in our cars,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.
The Polestar 3 is planned to be the first car in the world to feature Google’s new HD map, a comprehensive map that provides highly detailed and up-to-date road information. The HD map will allow Polestar to combine its vehicle sensor technology with Google’s precise lane-level and localization data to facilitate driver assistance features like Pilot Assist, as well as future autonomous driving functionality.
An HD map is a highly precise map that contains details not normally available in traditional maps. The enhanced level of detail is critical for assisted driving computation, improving recognition of details like lane markings and localization objects, including road signs.
“Building on our long history of mapping the world, Google’s new HD map is designed specifically for automakers and we’re excited to continue partnering with leading car manufacturers like Polestar to improve the safety and comfort of drivers everywhere,” said Jorgen Behrens, VP and General Manager of Geo Automotive at Google.
