Learn more about HERE True Car Technology

HERE TRUE cars are at the heart of creating accurate maps for your vehicle’s navigation system. Find out more about the tech that drives HERE data collection.

HERE creates maps for 196 countries throughout the world. This impressive coverage is due in part to a fleet of mapping vehicles which includes hundreds of TRUE cars. Each TRUE car has a five-foot rig equipped with the following hardware:

  • An inertial measurement unit (IMU) for heading and attitude data
  • 4 wide-angle 24-megapixel cameras that capture a 360-degree panoramic view
  • LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor used to create 3D representations
  • High-accuracy GPS (captures longitude and latitude coordinates)

HERE TRUE cars are essential to improving maps for vehicles currently on the road and the collected 3D data will play an essential role in developing HD maps for future autonomous driving.
