Japan to Improve Auto Mapping Tech

Japan's government and auto giants Toyota and Nissan will join hands to develop intelligent maps by 2018, as competition heats up to improve the technology key for autonomous driving. Japanese automakers, map-making companies and the government will get together to generate standardized intelligent maps, with plans to incorporate driving data gathered by the automakers, Japan Times said on Sunday. A Toyota spokesman declined to comment, while officials at Nissan could not be reached immediately for comment, Reuters reported. Intelligent mapping systems supply information to control self-driving cars, which are equipped with street-scanning sensors to measure traffic and road conditions.German auto supplier Bosch said on Friday it was in talks with high-definition digital maps company HERE, exploring whether to take a stake. Volkswagen's Audi, Daimler's Mercedes-Benz, BMW and car parts supplier Continental are also working on technologies for autonomous or semi-autonomous cars.
