Trian3DBuilder to produce 3D scenarios from HERE HD Live Map
Together with TrianGraphics, Here Technologies is extending its in-vehicle-centric HD Live Map use case to 3D modeling of road networks.
Here HD Live Map is a cloud-based service including a model of the road network with lane configurations and markings. TrianGraphics is using the live map to enhance the Road Module of its 3D Terrain Generator, Trian3DBuilder. It can now automatically process lane-accurate data and generate 3D road profiles, various crossing constellations, and other road elements such as side barriers or road signs.
With TrianGraphics, customers have access to the live map with wide-scale coverage. Once imported into Trian3DBuilder, the company says the road model can be edited and enriched with any additional geodata before exporting it to simulation solutions such as Vector DYNA4, VIRES VTD, and IPG CarMaker. The terrain database comes in different 3D standard formats including OpenSceneGraph, OpenFlight, and FBX. For the logical description of the road network, OpenDrive files can be generated.
“Our customers receive a tool for the automatic creation of complex roads,” said Felix Fürneisen, Senior Sales & Marketing Manager at TrianGraphics. “And we can deliver high-precision road data from Here Technologies, which is optimized for the workflow, together with our product.”
“With this partnership with TrianGraphics, Here Technologies is showing that Here HD Live Map is essential to any use case requiring precise mapping,” said Sheila Nedelcu, Director Product Management Highly Automated Driving at Here Technologies. “We are excited to make a great entrance with a trusted partner in the simulation market.”
