Trian3DBuilder to Help in Producing 3D Scenario from HERE HD Live Map

  • TrianGraphics would be using HERE HD Live Map to modify the road module of its 3D Terrain Generator
  • This road network model is considered to be accurate and is a cloud-based service

HERE Technologies join hands with TrianGraphics hereby extending its in-vehicle-centric HD Live Map use case to 3D modelling of road networks.
The HD Live Map is a cloud-based service consisting a highly accurate model of the road network with lane configurations and markings. This becomes a key component for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving solutions.


TrianGraphics would be using HERE HD Live Map to enhance the road module of its 3D Terrain Generator Trian3DBuilder. This can now automatically process accurate lane data and generate 3D road profiles, various crossing constellations and other road elements such as side barriers or road signs.

The customers now have access to HERE HD Live Map with widescale coverage. The road model once imported into Trian3DBuilder can be enriched with any additional geodata before transferring it to simulation solutions such as Vector DYNA4, VIRES VTD and IPG CarMaker.
This reduces the amount of data management. The terrain database comes in different 3D standard formats. The formats include OpenSceneGraph, OpenFlight and FBX. The OpenDrive files could be generated for the logical description of road networks. For all driving simulation solutions and for validating autonomous vehicle functions, this 3D modelling of road network will become essential.

Felix Furneisen, senior sales & marketing manager at TrianGraphics shared that, “Our customers receive a tool for the automatic creation of complex roads and we can deliver high-precision road data from HERE Technologies, which is optimised for the workflow, together with our product”.

Meanwhile Sheila Nedelcu, director of product management, highly automated driving at HERE Technologies said “Through this partnership with TrianGraphics, HERE Technologies is showing that HERE HD Live Map is essential to any use case which requires precise mapping. We are delighted to be working with such a trusted partner in the simulation market”.
