Mapping and Routing Advances Support the Transition to EVs and Automated Vehicles

Mapping and routing services have become nearly ubiquitous in transportation, used by drivers, bikers, and even pedestrians. Originally seen as a luxury option for certain vehicles, mapping and routing software is now built into nearly every smartphone by default. However, as EVs and automated vehicles (AVs) begin to penetrate the light duty vehicle (LDV) market, the importance of this technology is starting to be seen in a new light.

Guidehouse Insights predicts that by 2035, 61% of LDVs sold will be battery EVs and 45% of new LDVs will have a system that includes a camera, radar, and lidar. EVs and AVs will be the standard sooner than most might expect. As market penetration advances, the need for mapping and routing services specifically geared toward these segments becomes clear.

This Guidehouse Insights report analyzes the market trends for EVs, AVs, and mapping and routing services. It discusses how the technology stack for mapping and routing can be used to increase convenience and alleviate range anxiety for EV drivers. It also explores how the creation of detailed high definition (HD) maps enables the development of consumer AVs. The report ends with recommendations for OEMs and software developers in each of these segments to prepare them for a future where most cars sold are both an EV and an AV.
