Technical and commercial feasibility assessment of map data feedback loops applied to the ActMAP framework
The FeedMAP project aims to build a cooperative map feedback and updating framework improving the cooperation between data owners and data users. This framework will contribute to an improved transport efficiency and increased road safety by creating a sustainable source of map updates at a reduced cost for navigation and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications.
The objective of the project is to assess the technical and economic feasibility of map data correction by providing a map data feedback loop applied to a map data updating framework using the ActMAP standardized exchange formats and mechanisms. The cooperative environment is based on the collection of map data from in-vehicle sensors compared to the map database. Simple algorithms allow the detection of map data anomalies and send deviation reports to the FeedMAP service centres (FSC). The statistical analysis of aggregated deviation reports at the FSC will produce potential map updates with a measurement on reliability and accuracy.
ICCS implemented a vehicle fleet simulator and a software validation environment for validating the FeedMAP concept in a large scale.
