It has been a busy year for Civil Maps as far as conferences go, and as we head into the final stretch of the year, I am delighted to share some news about my speaking engagement at the upcoming Automotive Megatrends Connected Car Pune conference on November 29th. The event, in its second year, convenes many of the biggest names in the automotive world, including major manufacturers and suppliers from the US, EMEA, APAC, and beyond.
I have the pleasure of sharing some insights about the challenges facing the autonomous driving industry with regards to operational and economic scalability. My talk will focus on base map creation issues and solutions to solving their related data management problem. This was also the subject of a recent blog post by Civil Maps’ CEO, Sravan Puttagunta.
