Mapping and Navigation + TU-Automotive Detroit Debrief


Agenda, Attendee List, & Presentation files now available to Autotech Council members in the library.

Join Autotech Council members for this public meeting highlighting innovation and startups in mapping and navigation. We'll hear from a number of the providers of ideas and products, see a number of demos, and even get a chance to ride on a number of these devices. These ½-day, executive-format agendas highlight a few larger vendors who are leading the segment forward and bring dozens of undiscovered companies to the stage as well.

SUMMARY   |   AGENDA   |   ATTENDEES   |   LIBRARY

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

The Autotech Council's meeting on HD Maps and GIS Systems looks at the maps needed for autonomous vehicles that are not the papyrus scribbles of the past. Meet solution providers building the next generation of "living" HD maps, with: Centimeter-level detail, fleet learning, and z-axis information. Join us for this very interesting topic.

Members-Only Session: After lunch, members stay to debrief the 2017 TU-Automotive Detroit. These debrief sessions mix news with opinions for those members who did not attend and members actively contribute their insights to recent trends.
