Mapbox Announces SDK to Help Developers Build Smart AR Navigation

Published by , July 2, 2018 1:45 pm

(TechCrunch) Mapbox has announced a new software development kit (SDK) that will make it easier for developers to build applications that provide AR navigation. By using ARM’s Project Trillium AI platform, the Mapbox Vision SDK can also recognize other vehicles, pedestrians, speed limit signs, construction signs, crosswalks and more, all without having to train their own machine learning models to do so.
“The future of location is building live maps in real-time from distributed sensor networks embedded in vehicles and mobile devices at scale,” said Eric Gundersen, CEO of Mapbox, in today’s announcement. “Every vehicle and mobile device utilizing the Vision SDK creates a better map, and this same data is streamed back to Microsoft Azure for further processing.”
