Volvo and Polestar will strengthen their partnership with Google to create a more accurate navigation system.
Like Renault, Volvo relies on Google’s expertise developing an onboard system and navigation interface. It is undoubtedly one of the best options, an American company that has real knowledge in this matter. But those two tools will go further than Google Maps HD.
Behind this technology hides more precisely the system that enables the car’s environmental project to be reliable. A system that is similar to what other manufacturers already offer, whose display accuracy is close to that found on board Tesla.

But the demonstration is only the tip of the iceberg, as Volvo has shown that the device relies on data from Google, but also on information collected and processed by Swedish electric LiDAR sensors. The goal is to further improve the car’s ability to understand what’s going on around it, to improve autonomous driving performance.
