|Using HD Maps to Navigate the Mobility Landscape|

The automotive industry is facing the greatest transformation in its 130-plus year history. The fundamental business model of designing, manufacturing, and selling vehicles, parts, and services to consumers is expected to be supplanted by a shift to providing mobility-derived services in the next few decades. A key building block of this shift is location awareness and the ability for a vehicle to navigate between any desired locations. Whether in old-fashioned paper form or a modern digital version, basic street-level maps have always helped travelers navigate. However, these are now insufficient for the upcoming mobility paradigm.
As the automotive industry accelerates toward electrification, automation, and connectivity, embedded navigation with high definition (HD) maps becomes increasingly important. In recent years, several manufacturers have already begun using topographical information as an input to powertrain control and others are using road contour information to manage speed in partially automated driving systems. Highly automated vehicles will require detailed HD maps to enable precise localization. This new age of maps is targeted more at the electronic control systems running in the vehicle than at drivers.
This Navigant Research report assesses the use cases for HD mapping, discusses the means for building these maps, and provides recommendations for enabling the collection and use of data and potential business arrangements. The study describes various functionalities of HD maps as well as use cases for these tools. Guidance is provided for OEMs, traditional suppliers of navigation data, and new entrants into the field.
