Intellias Joins the NDS Association to Develop with the Worldwide Standard for Map Data

Intellias is furthering the evolution of the NDS specification, contributing to the future of automotive and mobility ecosystems

Berlin, Germany – March 2023 – Intellias, a global technology partner to automotive OEMs and Tier 1 solution providers, has become a member of the NDS (Navigation Data Standard) Association. As a member, Intellias will contribute to development of the worldwide NDS map data standard for automotive and mobility ecosystems. Through collaborating with leading car manufacturers, application developers, technology companies, and map service providers, Intellias will excel in NDS map data development.

As a partner to NDS members, Intellias has been building NDS-based solutions (starting from the earliest versions of NDS) that have already been installed in millions of vehicles. As a member of the NDS Association, Intellias will use the most recent NDS specifications and frameworks, participate in workshops on upgrading future versions of NDS, and apply NDS validation and certification tools.

Having vast experience working with NDS.Classic and custom map data formats on commercial projects, Intellias will share the company’s expertise with industry leaders to further improve and develop the most recent and in-demand NDS.Live map data specification. NDS.Live is a next-generation map data standard that enables online map services and dynamic map management. NDS.Live is an essential standard for the further development of ADAS systems, autonomous vehicles, and connectivity solutions as well as for the transition from offline to online map data in software-defined vehicles.

I am very pleased to welcome Intellias as a new member of the NDS Association. With their many years of NDS expertise as a sub-contractor to automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, Intellias is a highly welcome partner for the further development of the NDS specification. We look forward to working with them.
