DeepMap Named a "Cool Vendor" in the May 2020 Cool Vendors in Autonomous Vehicle Systems Report by Gartner

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DeepMap, a leading provider of high-definition (HD) mapping solutions for autonomous driving, today announced it has been recognized as a Cool Vendor in Gartner's Cool Vendors in Autonomous Vehicle Systems report, published in May 2020.

DeepMap is one of only five autonomous driving companies selected for inclusion in the report, which highlights new and innovative vendors, products, and services.

"We are honored by this recognition. We consider it to be a confirmation of our vision to enable customers to build 'high-integrity' centimeter-level precision maps according to their own specs, using their own vehicles and sensors, for all levels of autonomy," said James Wu, Co-Founder and CEO, DeepMap.

High-definition mapping is mission-critical for safe self-driving. HD maps define the world in terms that a self-driving vehicle can understand. The map provides all of the information about a road's geometry as well as the semantic rules and associations that are used to ensure the vehicle obeys traffic rules and conventions.

According to the Gartner report, "developing a solution that integrates into an autonomous vehicle system is complex and challenging. Technology and service providers must prepare to face the technology threats posed by direct competitors and be ready to partner while also being ready to harness innovative new business approaches."

In 2019, DeepMap was recognized in two Gartner Hype Cycle reports as a High-Definition Maps Sample Vendor:
