The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai and Here Technologies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a long-term technology collaboration with the aim of creating the city’s first high-definition (HD) maps to support self-driving transportation.

Both parties plan to deploy newly available location technologies in the development of a data infrastructure to support safe, sustainable and efficient autonomous transportation. These efforts are in line with Dubai’s Smart City strategy and its self-driving transport roadmap, which ultimately aim to increase the quality of life for people in the Emirate.

HD maps are a prerequisite to moving Dubai closer to its goal of having 25% of public transport services using self-driving vehicles by 2030. Following initial planning and proof-of-concept phases, RTA and Here intend to target joint pilots using the new technologies as part of preparation to deploy self-driving vehicles at the Expo 2020 international technology showcase event, which Dubai will be hosting.
