CARMERA Inc., which creates “living” maps for autonomous vehicles, is a participant in the trials in Brooklyn and is working with researchers and government agencies toward the goal of safe and reliable deployments.
The CARMERA Autonomous Map provides high-definition (HD) maps and navigation data to autonomous vehicles (AVs) in real time. The company uses data collected by sensors in partner vehicles. It says its “proprietary data pipelines conform to any customer-specific implementation of localization, verification, path planning, and simulation, allowing AVs to know where they are, confirm what they’re seeing, and know where to go next.”
Last year, CARMERA raised Series B funding of $20 million from GV, formerly Google Ventures. The company also won the Best in Show and Startup of the Year awards at the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
