Imagry and AutonomouStuff partner to deliver mapless driving platform
Imagry, an autonomous vehicle software developer with a mapless driving platform, announced it has partnered with AutonomouStuff for inclusion in its portfolio of autonomy-enabling technologies for worldwide resale.
"The Imagry platform sets itself apart through an innovative approach to one of the most complex aspects of automated driving," said Craig Johnson, Senior Autonomy Product Manager at AutonomouStuff. "Imagry engineered a system that navigates without the need for previously created and continuously updated high-definition maps, aligning itself with our mission to enable, accelerate, and deploy the future of autonomy."
Mapless vs. HD mapping technology
There are two types of approaches for developing autonomous vehicle technology: HD mapping and mapless. HD mapping is the most common approach and relies on pre-built maps. Mapless technology doesn’t require a pre-built map to function, instead, it uses a vision-based approach to “see” the world in front of it. According to the company, it is essentially generating realizations of the car’s surroundings in real time, allowing the vehicle to quickly adapt to its environment.
“Our partnership with AutonomouStuff is another important step in the adoption of mapless technology that enables the industry’s need to scale autonomous transportation,” said Adham Ghazali, CEO and Co-Founder of Imagry. “We view this alliance as an important endorsement and acknowledgement of our innovative and proprietary mapless technology for autonomous driving.”
According to the company, collaboration and inclusion of world-class suppliers is the best approach to developing a safe, cost-efficient, and fast-to-market solution for autonomous driving. AutonomouStuff’s ability to offer leading R&D platforms, products, software, and engineering services are critical for the go-to-market strategy of Imagry to reach multiple autonomous solution developers quickly. A key role for AutonomouStuff will be the integration of the mapless software into autonomous driving architectures.
