"Maps for Cars by Cars"

When an out-of-date map is usually merely a nuisance to the human driver when getting inaccurate navigation instructions, it may constitute a more severe issue for automated vehicles. For them, the map needs to be not only more detailed, but also more accurate and up-to-date.

ATTEND COMPASS 2017

DRIVING TEST PRECISION INTO VOLUME
