This via the Mapbox blog from CEO Eric Gundersen @ericg … Mapbox Drive is the first lane guidance map designed for car companies to control the in-car experience – Mapbox Drive is a platform for you to design the dashboard for the driver and own the data from your fleet.
The platform can power traffic-aware turn-by-turn navigation, guide drivers with beautiful maps, find destinations with instant search, integrate seamlessly with mobile devices, and enable semi-autonomous driving.
Built specifically for semi-autonomous driving, ride sharing, and connected cars, the map is updated live from our network of sensors. From designing the map to customizing the navigation, we’re building the platform for you to own every aspect of the relationship with the driver.
We’re turning phones, cars, and other devices into a network of real-time sensors. Our Mobile SDK collects billions of points that let us see every street, analyze the speed of traffic, and connect the entire road network. Last week alone we collected and processed over 100 million miles of sensor data into our maps. Anonymized and aggregated data preserves privacy while allowing us to quickly detect road changes.
