Autonomous Vehicles


Renovo, HERE Agree Partnership

Two auto tech giants are joining forces to accelerate development of future autonomous vehicle infotainment products and services.

Californian mobility software technology company Renovo and Dutch mapping and location services provider HERE Technologies are entering what they describe as a “partnership”, claiming to benefit from each other’s areas of specialization.

In a joint statement, the companies say it will enable them “to deploy open interfaces for highly and fully automated vehicles”. They add that their primary aim is to develop an interface that will allow fleets of automated cars powered by Renovo’s AWare operating system to share data, allowing services including HERE’s HD Live Map to be updated. Renovo and HERE haven’t said what other projects they will cooperate on in the future.

Commenting on the partnership, HERE CEO Edzard Overbeek said his company’s “integration into the AWare ecosystem will help expand access to data that’s vital to building automated mobility systems that people can trust.” Renovo CEO and co-founder Chris Heiser added that he was “delighted to enter into this partnership”.
