NAVIGATION AT MAPBOX
Navigation serves customers with use cases ranging from
turn-by-turn navigation in electric vehicles to delivery route
planning for fleets of thousands of trucks. Our services are often
at the heart of the operations of our customers businesses. We get
users from point A to point B effectively and on time, whether it s
delivering meals, servicing medical equipment, or commuting to
Navigation Services include our core routing engine, API services,
mobile SDKs, and driver application. Our routing engine is built
using C++ for performance and flexibility, with the same core
engine powering our server-side APIs as well as our mobile SDK for
on-device offline routing. We leverage Node JS and AWS ECS-driven
API and data processing services for generating our routing data.
Development on our APIs often requires working at multiple levels
of the stack: from the native C++ level, to the API and
infrastructure level. Members of our Navigation team become deeply
familiar with routing data structures and how real-world constructs
are represented in map data structures: from GPS traces and
location data to metadata for highway exits, one way signs, truck
weights and bridge heights.
Our products power experiences and operations for customers like
DPD, Porsche, Doordash and Instacart.
