Woven Alpha says they will proceed with talks with Isuzu and Hino to utilize their Automated Mapping Platform (AMP).

AMP is a connected crowdsourced software platform that supports the creation, development, and distribution of high definition maps — a key enabler for smart and safe automated mobility. AMP provides high-precision data driven maps by utilizing vehicle fleet data and advanced satellite imagery technology. AMP HD map includes several layers of data-rich information of road objects such as lanes, road signs, traffic lights, and other objects, as well as that of road curves and topography creating an accurate representation of the road while keeping it updated. 

With the goal of realizing smarter and safer logistics through automated driving and Advanced Driver Assistance System using HD maps, Isuzu and Hino will examine the potential application of AMP on the domain of small commercial-purpose trucks. The initiative aims to contribute to the dissemination of safer automated driving and ADAS with Commercial Japan Partnership Technologies Corporation that intends to accelerate CASE responses, which Toyota announced with Isuzu and Hino.
