NAVTEQ has announced that its Map and Positioning Engine (MPE) strategy has been recognized by leading automotive industry trade associations and conferences for its leadership and innovation in providing an industry strategy that enables easier integration of map-enhanced safety and fuel efficiency applications for vehicles.
With hardware designed by STMicroelectronics using their Teseo GPS to create the MPE, the strategy integrates the NAVTEQ map ADAS attributes on a tiny printed circuit board or distributed elsewhere in the vehicle electronics architecture. NAVTEQ’s recommended MPE specification and the NAVTEQ Electronic Horizon™ contained in the NAVTEQ MPE Development Platform, enables application developers to quickly test, evaluate and develop ADAS solutions for the market for use in a broad array of vehicles.
The MPE strategy expands NAVTEQ’s ongoing support of ADAS with the NAVTEQ® map available for embedded navigation systems, by now addressing vehicles that do not have such systems. In addition to providing quality map data, NAVTEQ has an experienced technical and customer engineering support staff. The ADAS research team assists customers with developing ADAS and fuel economy applications enabling efficient use of customer resources and reduction in the development cycle.
