Cognition for Autonomous Cars Using 6D Localization


To drive autonomously, vehicles need software which emulates the routines of natural human cognition (processes used to judge, plan, acquire knowledge, or otherwise — “think”). Autonomous vehicles must be able to understand the world that surrounds them, and this environmental context can be provided in the form of a machine-readable, high-definition “semantic map.” Detailed 3D semantic maps,
