The industry is faced with a unique challenge – creating automated mobility systems that exercise good judgment in complex scenarios. New modes of transportation and interaction capabilities with automated systems will fundamentally change the way people move. However, at the core of these advancements is the importance of environment awareness in and around our mobility systems. The opportunities that environment awareness technologies bring to our industry are in their infancy and major advancements in the field of automation will change the way that we interact with the world around us. Dr. Xin Chen will present his vision on next generation digital mapping to enable automated driving. He will showcase his research work in computer vision and machine learning to automatically create high quality next generation navigable maps.
