A Look At Nokia Maps Vehicle That Collects Location Data Around The World

Engadget got a brief tour of the Nokia Here collection vehicle and they shared some info about it.  It is a bright blue Volkswagen Jetta Wagon with number of sensors mounted over its top.

Here are the details about the sensors,

It features a military-grade GPS antenna, a 360-degree panorama camera in a white pod (which captures the spherical views you’ll see in Nokia Here), a Velodyne LIDAR unit in a spinning silver cylinder (for 3D mapping), high-resolution signage cameras in a black box (for forwards and backward automatic feature extraction) and finally a wheel encoder to measure distance / velocity.
