In an open source initiative, autonomous driving startup Argo AI will be releasing high-definition maps as well as curated data to researchers free of charge. The information that will be released was collected by the company during a test for its self-driving cars. Argo AI states that its goal is to give researchers the tools they need to study HD maps, as well as tracking and predicting objects on the road. Argo AI hopes this will incentivize more research in the field, and hopefully contribute to a technological breakthrough.
Argo has named the collection of data and maps Argoverse. However, the company is not releasing all of its data, since it is a curated data set. But Argoverse will be a sizeable amount of data that researchers can model.
