AI and Machine Learning Will Pave the Way for Building Maps for Driverless Cars

From the pages of sci-fi novels and movie scripts, self-driving or autonomous cars are finally a reality and are taking space on the roads. This has been possible by leveraging advanced technologies such as GPS sensing knowledge, sensors and other equipment used to manage driving. However, to be truly effective, autonomous cars need detailed maps of roads that clearly display obstacles and other hazards. Such maps are highly-critical because even the most sophisticated sensors are not enough to help a car navigate through changing environments safely enough while letting the occupants relax or doze off. Digital maps help by providing…

Enabling Smart Parking for Improved User Experience

Given the increasing shortage of parking spaces in urban areas, many of us often end up driving around looking for safe parking spots on more than one occasion. Over the past two decades, while cars have been getting technically rich with infotainment systems, sensors, and park-assist features, parking lots have largely lagged behind in terms of innovation and technological updates. However, things are set to change now. A report by Frost and Sullivan suggests that an investment of approximately $200 to $250 million is expected in this industry through 2019 and by 2020 there will be a million smart parking…
