Autonomous cars can only understand the real world through a map

Autonomous cars can only understand the real world through a map In the second of our series ‘3 steps to automation’, we look at the need for a precise and trustworthy map that can be ‘read’ by the car. As we’ve seen in the first in the series, however numerous and multifarious, sensors do not make for automated cars alone.
