How does Kudan’s localization and mapping technology disrupt Mobile Mapping System?
Mobile Mapping System (MMS) market has been growing, especially ones mounted on a vehicle due to calls for more efficiency of mapping, more aging infrastructure to be monitored and more demands on HD map.
However, MMS on a vehicle has required very high-end expensive sensors to make the system robust and accurate enough. This limits MMS players to expand more rapidly and also gain more margin.
Kudan GrandSLAM, our localization and mapping software from SLAM technology, enables significant sensor cost reduction (up to ~90% reduction) while provide more robust and accurate map for MMS players and their users by tightly coupling all the sensors: lidar, camera, GNSS and IMU.
