FeedMAP : Technical and commercial feasibility assessment of map data feedback loops applied to the ActMAP framework

Objective

The FeedMAP project aims to build a cooperative map feedback and updating framework improving the cooperation between data owners and data users. This framework will contribute to an improved transport efficiency and increased road safety by creating a sustainable source of map updates at a reduced cost for navigation and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications.

The objective of the project is to assess the technical and economic feasibility of map data correction by providing a map data feedback loop applied to a map data updating framework using the ActMAP standardized exchange formats and mechanisms. The cooperative environment is based on the collection of map data from in-vehicle sensors compared to the map database. Simple algorithms allow the detection of map data anomalies and send deviation reports to the FeedMAP service centres (FSC). The statistical analysis of aggregated deviation reports at the FSC will produce potential map updates with a measurement on reliability and accuracy.

They will then be sent to the relevant map data owners for crosschecking with their own information. Finally, certified map updates are distributed through the ActMAP framework to in-vehicle database and relevant bodies. This solution will provide the missing link to merge road user experiences with the map data information held by the map providers and the road administrations. This cooperative environment enables to reduce the time between the actual changes on the road network and its publication in the road databases of map vendors and public administrations.

A cooperative framework will be proposed involving OEMs, equipment suppliers, service providers, map vendors, and road authorities with the functional definition of their interfaces. It is expected that even with a low penetration rate of equipped vehicles, physical road modifications and other features that are not on the map database can be quickly detected, certified and redistributed.
