Mean Machine Lovers ! The Delhi Auto Expo 2016 is scheduled to be held this month from Feb 4th-7th, and while those regular auto giants will continue to occupy centre stage, our dear startups too are gearing up for a decent show there. And this year, the future of transportation- self-driving cars and related technology- will be the major highlight of the show.

During the show, MapmyIndia, one of India’s more known companies in digital maps, GPS and location technologies will be showcasing novel and innovative technologies that will help build self-driving cars, at Stall No. 35, Hall No. 2-5 at the venue.

The company will also showcase its range of automotive and transportation focused map and GPS products and solutions.

Today, we are in a unique position to provide vital technologies, which can accelerate the advent of self-driving cars in India. We are well integrated into the automotive OEM universe and look forward to showcasing our latest technologies at Auto Expo,

says Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia.

At the Auto Expo, MapmyIndia will be showcasing demonstrations of its RealView technology and Advanced Maps for Self-Driving Cars. MapmyIndia RealView syncs high-resolution panoramas (360-degree photos) with highly accurate GPS and accelerometer data to create a ground truth reference dataset for the car’s driving system.

Real View when paired with MapmyIndia’s highly detailed and accurate Advanced Map dataset for India can be used geo-tag, measure and analyze various assets of interest, such as potholes, speed breakers, road signs, traffic signals overhead bridges, lane markers, road shoulders etc.

This gives the cars an advanced warning of upcoming objects and help the system make intelligent decisions on driving and alerting maneuvers in advance, improving safety and enhancing Advanced Driving Assistance and Self-Drive capabilities of cars in India.

RealView can also be used by government agencies, especially transport and road authorities, for improved road design, traffic planning, encroachment analysis etc. to improve the underlying transport infrastructure which can facilitate safer road conditions.

In addition to the above, MapMyIndia will also give a demo of their  GPS products and solutions involving an upcoming consumer product called DriveMate; a Connected Car platform; and Fleet Management Systems.

DriveMate is a plug-and-play GPS IoT Device for Vehicle Tracking and Driver Behaviour Monitoring. DriveMate, as an OEM solution, can also be plugged into the vehicle’s CAN interface to share vehicle diagnostics and health information.

The connected car platform delivers Smartphone-Connected In-car Navigation, Telematics and Map APIs for making the Car Infotainment System and 3rd Party Apps Location-Aware. This platform is already being used by Tata Motors and was recently launched by Jaguar Land Rover as well.

Fleet Management Systems include Computer Aided Dispatch Solution for Emergency Response Vehicles such as Fire Trucks, Ambulances and Police Vehicles as well as GPS Fleet Management System for School Buses and Logistics Trucks. These systems can help improve capabilities and productivity of these enterprise fleets.

MapMyIndia is the pioneer of digital mapping in India since 1995. Its proprietary MapMyIndia Maps is one of the  most comprehensive, accurate, reliable, full-featured and continuously updated digital map dataset for all India.

India’s leading taxi aggregator OlaCabs and e-commerce behemoth Flipkart have already invested in MapMyIndia to strengthen their transportation and logistics systems.
