The Navigation Data Standard, or NDS, is the most used database format for automotive navigation solutions. It has been adopted by market leaders including BMW, Daimler, and VAG. NDS allows developers to separate navigation software from navigation data, granting flexibility to build a customizable product for end users. There is high demand among OEMs to adopt the Navigation Data Standard.
Intellias engineers have strong experience in NDS map compilation and testing, including all building block areas like digital terrain modeling, junction views, points of interest, traffic information, basic map display, routing, lane models, volatile data, shared data, and full-text search. We also have expertise in building automated map delivery pipelines.
Use deterministic maps to limit map testing to difference deltas. The main advantages are a reduced map delivery cycle time and a reduced patch size for over-the-air updates. We have experience writing and maintaining solutions for compiling deterministic maps.
Create a product-oriented solution that combines features and updates regions from different clients into one map and introduces a post-processing step that cuts out specific client maps. This solution can scale to meet client requests without increasing engineering resources.
Combine various data sources with complex approximative algorithms. As a real-world example, we applied elevation data to an initially flat road model with respect to road junctions, bridges, and tunnels.
Develop solutions to visualize and validate NDS data from all building blocks using a street-level 3D model. This helps us understand, validate, and conduct effective RCA on NDS data as well as increase the effectiveness of communication while resolving the problem.
In order to install navigation solutions into cars, they must be verified by regulatory bodies that vary from country to country and may have conflicting demands. We have experience adapting products to comply with country-specific requirements related to borders, toponyms, and other map content.
To avoid constant map growth we apply algorithms for merging, aggregation, and content filtering. They also help to achieve high-performance routing for any request, from navigation within a city to navigation across Europe. Routing aggregation algorithms limit the amount of live data processing with no impact on data accuracy.
