Civil Maps at Autonomous Vehicles and Machines IInternational Symposium

Where Industry and Academia Meet


Imaging is integral to the human experience—from personal photographs taken every day with mobile devices to autonomous imaging algorithms in self-driving cars to the mixed reality technology that underlies new forms of entertainment. Come to EI 2018, where leading researchers, developers, and entrepreneurs from around the world discuss, learn about, and share the latest imaging developments from industry and academia.

The 2018 event features 18 technical conferences and 1 focus session covering all aspects of electronic imaging, including:

  • Augmented and virtual reality displays and processing
  • Autonomous machine imaging algorithms
  • Computational and digital photography
  • Human vision, color, perception, and cognition
  • Image and video processing and communication via the web
  • Mobile imaging
  • Imaging sensors
  • Image quality
  • Display and hardcopy
  • Media security and forensics
  • Machine vision and machine learning
  • Stereoscopic displays and their applications
  • Applications of these technologies in communications, security, transportation, education, space exploration, medicine, entertainment, and more

Technical courses taught by experts from academia and industry augment the main technical program of symposium plenary, conference keynote, and oral and interactive (poster) presentations.

Technology demonstrations by industry and academia participants and a focused exhibition showcase the latest developments driving next generation electronic imaging products.

Civil Maps’ Speaker:

Scalable Autonomous Vehicle Mapping and Localization On the Edge

Sravan Puttagunta (CEO & Co-founder)

When: January 30th at 10:30 AM
Where: Grand Peninsula Ballroom B-C

Abstract: Sravan Puttagunta, co-founder and CEO of Civil Maps, discusses how conventional mapping and localization is evolving towards Edge Mapping, a process in which autonomous vehicles create, use, and crowdsource high definition semantic maps, in real-time and in-car. Self-driving cars pose a massive data processing challenge that is moving from high latency data centers to in-vehicle processing at the edge. Puttagunta will explore the role of advanced sensor fusion and how recent innovations are enabling scalable hardware and software solutions to accelerate autonomous driving initiatives.

Biography: Sravan Puttagunta is a co-founder and chief executive officer of Civil Maps, an autonomous vehicle technology company that enables cars to have Cognition through AI, 3D mapping, advanced localization, and crowdsourcing. As CEO, he is executing on a vision for safer, smarter, fully autonomous driving. With his direction, Civil Maps is on track to triple revenue from last year and is providing key technology to several major automakers. He leads the company’s technology teams, who are developing innovative ways for cars to localize in six dimensions (6D) and crowdsource 3D maps at a continental scale. In his previous work, he invented video fingerprinting for linear broadcast TV to track viewing habits and developed software that runs in more than 160 million TVs. He has written substantial portions of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for cars which map the world in 3D. Puttagunta holds a master’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley.
