Automotive Proving Ground HD Map Models
Self-driving vehicles also need maps - just like us drivers - for route plans, but traditional maps are often inaccurate and contain significantly less information than so-called High Definition Maps (HD). HD maps are usually based on laser measurements, thus the accuracy of each road element can be around 2 centimeters. Our goal is to properly support research in this direction as well, therefore we created an HD map of the selected modules of the ZalaZONE proving ground. The selected components are the High-Speed Handling course, Dynamic Platform, ADAS surface and Motorway section. These materials are accessible for download including the high-resolution and highprecision Lidar point cloud which the maps are based on, recorded with the Lecia Pegasus 2 system. We have implemented our HD maps in the increasingly widespread OpenDRIVE format in the automotive industry.
