Bosch creates a map that uses radar signals for autonomous vehicles

Bosch and TomTom creating a map that uses radar signals for autonomous vehicles.

Bosch and the Dutch map and traffic information provider TomTom have achieved a breakthrough in the development of high-resolution maps for automated driving.

It is expected that by 2020 at the latest, the first vehicles will provide data for the radar road signature in Europe and the U.S.



Bosch’s radar road signature is compatible with all conventional map formats.

Bosch board of management member Hoheisel, said:
“Radar road signature will enable automated vehicles to reliably determine their location at all times.”

The supplier of technology and services has become the first worldwide to create a localization layer using radar signals – which will be indispensable for maps like these. So far, video data has been used for this purpose. Bosch’s “radar road signature” is made up of billions of individual reflection points. These are formed everywhere that radar signals hit – for example, on crash barriers or road signs – and reproduce the course a road takes. Automated vehicles can use the map to determine their exact location in a lane down to a few centimeters. “The radar road signature is a milestone on the path towards automated driving. It will enable automated vehicles to reliably determine their location at all times,” says Bosch board of management member Dr. Dirk Hoheisel.
