Intel is buying a 15 percent stake in Here, the mapping service started by Nokia that was sold last year to Audi, BMW, and Mercedes for over $3 billion.

Like Audi, BMW, and Mercedes, the investment Intel is making in Here is all about cars. Intel says it plans to work with Here to develop mapping systems that can pinpoint a vehicle’s location “within centimeters,” as a way to improve autonomous driving systems. That’s a key area for Intel, as it recently announced plans to invest $250 million in building self-driving vehicle systems.
