Autonomous vehicle maps must pair with core competency

A highly detailed map is an important part of AV deployment, but an AV must also still be able to think independently. By Jack Hunsley

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are unlikely to progress far without clear, defined boundaries enforced via mapping and navigation technology. The ease with which an AV can be taught to understand where it is positioned within the world to within the accuracy of a few centimetres could prove to be the make or break moment for any AV technology company. It, therefore, comes as little surprise to see a company such as Nvidia place such huge importance on the AV map.
