Frost & Sullivan Intelligent Mobility Program Manager Niranjan Manohar, Research Analyst Siddhanth Kumaramanickavel and HERE Automotive Product Marketing Manager Alex Mangan. 

Autonomous cars are heavily reliant on existing infrastructure such as road signs, markings, etc., to navigate. However, the required infrastructure to support autonomous driving is subpar at most in many regions. To ensure that autonomous cars can continue driving autonomously, they require high-definition maps that can "fill in the blanks" (e.g., missing lane markings or signs can be checked on the map). This briefing will discuss where HD maps fit into the autonomous driving ecosystem, HD maps adoption, and threats to automotive navigation players by geospatial companies.

Attend the Webinar to:

  • Learn how technology companies are developing solutions for autonomous cars, leading to investments in the mapping market
  • Hear up-to-date information about current and potential industry participants
  • Understand forecasts and future market predictions
  • Learn about key growth opportunities in the marketplace

This briefing will benefit OEMs invested in autonomous driving, map suppliers and autonomous technology providers.

"Map suppliers expect HAD maps to be implemented to support Level 3+ autonomous driving," states Frost & Sullivan Mobility Research Analyst Siddhanth Kumaramanickavel. "HAD maps are expected to power applications outside the automotive sector in the future as well, as they cover sidewalks, power/telephone lines and approximately 10 stories of buildings."
