BACKGROUND: Intermap Technologies, a leader in 3D digital mapping that drives intelligent transportation, will be an exhibitor at Telematics Detroit 2009, June 2-3. Eric DesRoche, senior vice president of Intermap’s Automotive business unit, is available for interviews on Wednesday, June 3 about the contributions his company is making to the global auto industry’s advanced driver assistance systems’ (ADAS) safety and energy management applications that rely on accurate road vectors.

In May, Intermap announced the completion of the first dataset of highly accurate 3D road vectors for the entire country of Germany. The company also is producing 3D road vectors for other European countries and the U.S. that will be integrated into a road vectors database covering all of Western Europe and the contiguous U.S. and Hawaii.

Academic research teams and automotive tier-one suppliers have used Intermap’s road vectors for studies and development of next generation fuel efficiency and potential safety applications. DesRoche can explain a recent joint study conducted with Clemson University that demonstrated how Intermap’s 3D road vectors can significantly enhance energy efficiencies in hybrid electric vehicles through innovations like predictive road topology.
