BARCELONA, Spain, March 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- During Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023, Huawei introduced Petal Maps and demonstrated its innovative features including full-screen lane-level guidance, real-time traffic monitoring, multiple map layers, life services, and collaborative navigation with clock. With these features, Petal Maps is able to offer users around the world reliable map and navigation services backed by a co-created ecosystem.

Today, Petal Maps covers more than 160 countries and regions, has more than 40 million MAUs, and can display map data in more than 70 languages. Thanks to its wide range of features, Petal Maps has been well received by users around the world and acts as an always-on co-pilot, ready to help users explore the world.

Full screen lane level guidance for easy navigation through complex turns

At MWC, Huawei introduced the full-screen lane-level guidance feature of Petal Maps, which overhauls the conventional navigation experience. This feature expands the lane-level guidance view to fill the entire screen, helping users more easily determine the exact lane their vehicle is in. Additionally, the feature covers more roads in countries like Malaysia, the Philippines, and Mexico, which, coupled with a clearer view, creates a better user experience.

Full-screen lane guidance uses numerous features, such as 3D road modeling algorithms and lane extraction from high-definition satellite imagery, to automatically simulate and render detailed 3D road information, thereby displaying roads more vividly on digital maps. Petal Maps is especially effective in providing clearer navigation guidance and driving suggestions in more challenging road scenarios, reminding users to change lanes on time and helping them navigate complex turns more easily.

Petal Maps is also committed to providing green and safe navigation services. For cycling enthusiasts, Petal Maps can provide you with the most appropriate routes depending on traffic conditions, so you can do your bit for the environment. For hikers, Petal Maps can tell you when and where to turn via watch vibrations, letting you enjoy the sights instead of worrying about navigating the streets.

Immersive map effects to recreate the real world on digital maps

Petal Maps is capable of rendering roads, buildings, weather effects, and night scenes with great detail and colors that are true to the real world. This vividly recreates the real world within the digital maps, helping users to understand and navigate them more easily. Currently, Petal Maps allows you to visualize almost a hundred emblematic buildings in 3D. In the Huawei exhibition area, visitors were able to use Petal Maps to explore iconic Barcelona buildings, such as the Sagrada Familia and Casa Milà, recreated in 3D on the platform's digital maps. Petal Maps is also capable of displaying dynamic weather effects, such as clouds, sun, and storms, based on local weather, and can also display streetlights and other specific building details at night.

Petal Maps strives to reconstruct the real world through digital maps. At MWC, Huawei introduced the Petal Maps real-scene 3D mapping function, which uses industry-leading explicit radiance field technology and multi-source image data packet adjustment technology to systematically optimize 3D reconstruction. of ultra-thin and large scene maps, implementing reconstruction rendering of real scenes and recreating buildings in stunning detail.

Ecosystem co-creation with fully open map platform capabilities

In addition to innovating mapping functions, Huawei works closely with ecosystem partners such as hotels, trucking service providers, and catering merchants in the travel and transportation industries to offer a series of everyday services through Petal. Maps in one stop. For example, Petal Maps provides the necessary services for users to travel on many types of transportation, order takeout, and book hotels and tickets to scenic spots.

At MWC, Huawei also showcased the Petal Maps Platform, an all-scenario integrated and cross-platform mapping platform. The Petal Maps Platform integrates and opens the capabilities of Location Kit, Map Kit, Site Kit, and Navi Kit to developers around the world, supporting their app innovation. Through the platform, developers in industries such as travel, life services, and e-commerce can greatly reduce development costs and achieve efficient digital transformation.

In the future, Huawei will continue to strive to improve the Petal Maps user experience and explore cutting-edge technologies, with the goal of providing more reliable and easy-to-use navigation services for users and more open and secure map services for developers. .
