Self-Healing Maps: protecting maps through automatic updating processes.

Grant number: DP170100153 | Funding period: 2017 - 2020



This project aims to expand our ability to automatically integrate real-time data in map databases of high integrity. Our ability to sense the environment in real-time dramatically exceeds our ability to automatically and reliably integrate mapped data. The quality assurance of map data is a lengthy process, leading either to outdated or low integrity maps. Emergency responders, traffic services and the public then act on map data that cause delays and disturbances. This project intends to deliver self-healing mechanisms inspired by the human immune system, which protect maps from erroneous or malicious data, and detect and correct inconsistencies.
