Civil Maps and Renovo Auto build OS for automated mobility


Civil Maps has teamed up with Renovo, the software technology company behind AWare, to provide highly automated vehicle makers and technology providers with seamless access to Civil Maps’ vehicular cognition stack.

Through this technical collaboration, self-driving systems and other automotive modules that integrate with Renovo’s AWare, the first OS built specifically for automated mobility, will be immediately compatible with several key aspects of Civil Maps’ platform, a lightweight, highly scalable solution to HD map creation, usage and continental-scale crowdsourcing.

The two companies will work together to standardize abstraction layers that sit between Civil Maps’ mapping and localization systems and OEM sensor configurations, decision engines, HMIs, and control systems. This collaboration will result in a universal interface, architected by Renovo, that will provide plug-and-play compatibility with Civil Maps’ vehicular cognition stack for all other modules in the fast-growing AWare ecosystem, thereby providing significant time and cost savings for developers.

Civil Maps joins a growing roster of leading companies compatible with and leveraging Renovo’s AWare OS including Samsung, Verizon, Velodyne LiDAR, Parsons, INRIX, Argus Cyber Security, Affectiva, Phantom Auto, Metamoto and others with a shared mission to develop and deploy fleets of highly automated vehicles by fostering innovation, collaboration and interoperability.

Civil Maps and Renovo will work closely on abstraction and integration standards using the Renovo fleet, sharing their work with customers in the fourth quarter of 2018.
