The consortium of carmakers consisting of Audi (VOWG_p.DE), BMW and Daimler that owns digital map maker HERE said on Monday it would explore the use of big data to improve the quality of its maps.
HERE currently uses data from more than 80,000 sources for its maps, including static data captured by its 3D mapping cars and dynamic data.
"Now, to further advance its plans to deliver real-time maps, HERE will be exploring the possibility of incorporating anonymised data from Audi, BMW and Daimler vehicles, with a view to entering similar discussions with more industry participants too in the coming months," the three car makers said in a statement.
