RTA To Create HD Map Of Dubai To Support Autonomous Driving

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and HERE Technology have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to map the city with high-definition technology for the first time. According to RTA, a HD map is vital for Dubai to be able to achieve its goal of having 25 percent of public transport be self-driving by 2030.
Both parties plan to deploy newly available location technologies in the development of data infrastructure to support safe and efficient autonomous transportation technology, part of the greater Dubai Smart City strategy set forth by the government.
