The Mapbox Vision SDK

The future is open.
See it with the Mapbox Vision SDK.

Living maps, intelligent navigation, augmented reality, and high-performance computer vision combine to provide a revolutionary viewport into what’s ahead. The Mapbox Vision SDK transforms connected cameras into a second set of eyes for your car. With live imagery processed directly on your device, we’re bringing visual context to our live location platform and rethinking how machines and humans alike interact with the road.

The Mapbox Vision SDK also works in conjunction with our live traffic and navigation, allowing developers on iOS and Android to build a heads-up display experience in their native apps. Review our documentation to learn more: iOS | Android

The future demands fresh, precise maps—for humans and machines alike. The Mapbox Vision SDK unlocks a sophisticated suite of future-ready features, including augmented reality navigation, object detection, and semantic segmentation—turning your phone into a powerful connected sensor.

Companies that have stepped into the driver’s seat:

Azure IoT Hub and the Mapbox Vision SDK work together to intelligently interpret and process data at the edge. This opens an exciting world of possibilities for our developer customers in the automotive industry giving them unprecedented access to live road data.

– Tara Prakriya, Partner Group Program Manager, Azure IoT Connected Vehicles and Azure Maps, Microsoft

The augmented reality navigation experience provided by the Mapbox Vision SDK is a boon for our customers. Integrating heads-up, turn-by-turn guidance into the Nexar app provides opportunities for improving driver safety and efficiency.

- Eran Shir, CEO, Nexar

We’re excited to explore a new set of opportunities with the Mapbox Vision SDK through our incubation efforts with infotainment systems/clusters within our HMI toolchain, EB GUIDE, along with HAD functionalities for autonomous driving, with EB robinos.

– Walter Sullivan, Head of Innovation & Incubation, Elektrobit

The Mapbox Vision SDK provides unprecedented access to real-time road data that will feed into Mapbox’s live location platform. Imagery is processed directly on the device, so current road conditions and live event data can be used to provide low latency, low bandwidth updates to the living map. Highly efficient neural networks run solely on the device - without the need to upload and process video in the cloud.* The Mapbox Vision SDK is powerful enough to understand today’s driving environment in real time, yet compact enough to run on billions of mobile devices.


Today, the Vision SDK is supported for iOS and Android. Support for embedded Linux platforms will be added later this year. When run on a smartphone, no additional hardware is necessary other than a windshield or dash mount.


The Vision SDK is now in a limited public beta and available to select developers.
