Naver Labs, the research and development arm of search engine giant Naver, and local car-sharing firm SoCar have signed an agreement to cooperate in the development of driver assistant technologies and detailed maps based on self-driving technologies, according to the firms on Wednesday. 

Under the agreement, Naver Labs will be in charge of developing an advanced driver-assistance system and detailed maps, to contribute to the safety of SoCar drivers.

An advanced driver-assistance system has safety features designed to avoid collisions and accidents, such as by alerting a driver to potential problems, implementing safeguards and taking over control of the vehicle.

The firm also said it plans to apply its xDM, or eXtended Definition & Dimension Map, a detailed map and location platform, to SoCar vehicles to show the traffic situation in real-time.

“Through the cooperation with SoCar, we have an opportunity to further develop our self-driving and detailed map technologies. We will continue to realize the true value of technologies by connecting everyday life and technology,” said Song Chang-hyun, CEO of Naver Labs.
