“First you get the maps; Then, you get the power; Then you get the autonomous car.”

If Al Pacino’s Scarface had been analyzing the Automobile and Mobility industry, he surely would have said the above. Maps have progressed from rudimentary scrolls, through detailed geographically accurate versions, and through multi-layered computerized GIS systems. Meanwhile the demand for good maps in Transportation have moved well beyond a pretty display and turn-by-turn directions in a four-inch console SatNav display. Centimeter-level detail, fleet learning, z-axis information, and a “living map” is the new standard.

Mapping is one of three critically important and slightly redundant modeling tools used to enable self-driving cars:
– Sensors that read the world around the car and offer a 3D model
– V2V and V2I support that communicates real-time real-world data to the car
– Maps, which offer an historic model of the world around the car

These three systems offer some overlap, and fused together, give the AI in the car the ability to fuse together the knowledge, build a highly reliable final 3D model of the world around it right now, and thus make good choices on how to proceed through that model. Of course, it’s also true that maps are the essential input for autonomous vehicles to be able to plan the routes that they will take to reach their destinations. For these reasons, the Autotech Council wants to take a good look at the map, and see what’s developing. If we’re to become legend, we’ve got to look at the scale of these changes. You should come to our entire meeting to see all the layers of information, and not just choose à la carte.
