This Self-Driving Technology Could Make Autonomous Cars Cheaper By Using 3D Maps

International Business Times

A LIDAR fires beams of laser and measures the time taken by it to return to the sensor, using the knowledge to create a map the car's immediate setting, including lanes, traffic, stop signs and traffic lights. A new technology called Lvl5, engineered by former Tesla engineers Andrew Kouri and Erik Reed, and computer vision scientist George Tall, might contribute to making self-driven cars cheaper by replacing the LIDAR sensors. "We don't really care if LIDAR wins out or computer vision wins out. Apart from Lvl5, Tesla is also working on a similar technology -- the company started using its cars' external cameras to spot traffic lights, lanes and street signs to improve its autonomous technology.


To shape the future we have to save the past – CUBE Connects – Medium

#artificialintelligence

CyArk, for example, is aiming to digitally preserve heritage sites, and entire cities, across the world before they are lost to natural disasters, armed conflicts, and neglect, using autonomous driving and mapping technologies. Using VR technology, these tours help visitors to visualize the past by creating immersive virtual reality visualization of historical events. IoT is a hot topic right now, and is being used across a range of sectors from smart housing to agriculture and energy: Introducing the Internet of Cultural Things (IoCT), an IoT paradigm applied to cultural heritage by integrating objects, sensors, services, and apps within cultural places. Applications of IoCT will allow for not only visitor tracking, cultural site physical condition, but connecting objects with people and connecting people with each other to share knowledge -- a truly great opportunity to raise public engagement and initiative.
