DMP Expands HD Map Coverage For General Motors To About 750K Miles In U.S. and Canada


DETROIT (APRIL 22, 2024) — Dynamic Map Platform North America (DMP North America) proudly announces it will expand its high-definition map database for General Motors, covering about750,000 miles of roads in the United States and Canada. This advancement nearly doubles available road coverage and allows Super Cruise owners the ability to drive hands-free on more rural highways and connecting roads.

In this expansion, DMP North America utilized precise LiDAR data and proprietary algorithms to map secondary roads (as defined in OpenStreetMap). The addition of minor highways enriches the Super Cruise experience, offering customers greater variety and enhanced coverage of hands-free driving, irrespective of their location, work, or vacation destinations.

Chris Thibodeau, chief executive officer of DMP North America, emphasized the importance of quality in introducing hands-free driving to the public: “Quality is paramount in the realm of ADAS, and the introduction of hands-free driving requires a meticulous and careful approach to maintain customers’ trust in the technology,” Thibodeau said. “Getting it right is not just a priority; it’s a necessity for the industry.”

General Motors acknowledged the significance of precise LiDAR map data in ensuring the safe deployment of its advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), Super Cruise. HD maps are a fundamental component in the “sensor fusion” process, where precise LiDAR map data, real-time cameras, radars, and GPS collectively create a comprehensive sensory field around the vehicle. This field ensures the vehicle is well-centered in the lane, heightening driver comfort and convenience.
