Ordnance Survey to provide mapping for autonomous vehicles
Although Westfield is known globally for its kit sports cars, the firm has branched out in recent years to developing autonomous electric pods, including suppling vehicles to South Korea.
The firm’s latest Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ordnance Survey builds on previous collaborations and will help develop and advance autonomous vehicle capability through 3D High Definition mapping capability.
Julian Turner, chief executive officer at Westfield Technology Group, said: “We’re very excited about strengthening our working relationship with Ordnance Survey. This MoU will allow us to further advance and improve our autonomous vehicle operations, particularly in areas which desperately need access to sustainable, reliable and flexible transport.”
