Here Technologies has started working with Naver Labs to develop indoor maps of venues and crowded spaces using bots. The robots will maps indoor venues such as airports, train stations, entertainment venues and shopping centres. The maps will serve the people navigating these spaces, such as commuters, or help people find their favourite at a shopping centre. Transportation authorities will be able to use the maps to keep foot traffic moving efficiently, while logistics planners will be able to improve their delivery schedules. 

Here will connect the information collected by Naver robots to its own services. Naver Labs makes robotic systems such as Around and M1. The autonomous robots move through indoor spaces both to assist humans and to create 3D maps of the environment that other bots can follow.  

Here’s existing venue map data will be enhanced by the 3D and high-performance scans. The maps will be made part of the Here Open Location Platform for businesses and developers. Testing of the total system will take place in Korea, with the aim of launching services globally.
