“The company has mapped the entire U.S. and Canada controlled access highway network with less than four inches of deviation, providing accurate long and medium distance sensing systems to help autonomous vehicles to safely navigate.”
“Ushr Inc., a Livonia, Mich.-based provider of high-definition mapping technology and software for autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, raised $10 million in Series A funding.
“Ushr’s HD mapping technology works with vehicle sensors and on-road cameras to provide real-world detail.”
