TOKYO: The Japan Patent Office has published Patent No. 2020-090099 related to the generation of high-precision maps of self-driving cars and registered in the name of Dr. Mohamed Al-Dibaja.

Dr. Dibaja, the Assistant Professor at the Advanced Mobility Research Institute (AD-MORE) of Kanazawa University, told Arab News Japan that “the idea was compared to all similar patents worldwide as well as international scientific publications by a specialized official agency in order to check the originality.”

“Based on the agency’s report to the university and after examinations for several stages by scientific committees, the university approved the registration process of the patent and registered it in the Central Patent Office in Tokyo.”

The Palestinian-Syrian inventor pointed out that the proposed system has been tested in many critical environments and traffic junctions in Japan to generate HD maps including the world’s longest underground tunnel, Yanase Tunnel, and many other urban environments.

The generated maps have outperformed an accurate and expensive positioning system (GNSS/INS-RTK) in terms of precision and scalability.

Accordingly, the generated maps have increased the localization accuracy saw to estimate the vehicle position in the real world during autonomous driving.
