HERE HD Live Map is a cloud-based service including a highly accurate model of the road network with lane configurations and markings. This makes it a key component for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving solutions. TrianGraphics is using HERE HD Live Map to enhance the Road Module of its 3D Terrain Generator Trian3DBuilder. It can now automatically process lane accurate data and generate 3D road profiles, various crossing constellations and other road elements such as side barriers or road signs.

With TrianGraphics, customers have access to HERE HD Live Map with wide scale coverage. Once imported into Trian3DBuilder, the road model can be edited and enriched with any additional geodata before exporting it to simulation solutions such as Vector DYNA4, VIRES VTD and IPG CarMaker. The terrain database comes in different 3D standard formats including OpenSceneGraph, OpenFlight and FBX.

“Our customers receive a tool for the automatic creation of complex roads, and we can deliver high-precision road data from HERE Technologies, which is optimized for the workflow, together with our product,” said Felix Fürneisen, Senior Sales & Marketing Manager at TrianGraphics.
