Open source autonomous driving platform is an important drive for the development of autonomous driving industry. It empowers individual engineer and startup, leading to innovation that’s “out of control”. Democratic and decentralized open community of engineers is revealing its significance over time. For the open source autonomous driving platform, high-precision map is an indispensable part, which enables vehicles to efficiently deal with complicated traffics. HD map data is more than simple geographic road information. More road topology information is involved in high-precision map and becomes an essential part, raising requirements for HD maps regarding its dynamics, flexibility, scalable capability and conversion. Meetup on Sep 13th, we’ve invited guests and professionals from the industry to share the concrete insights on open source autonomous driving system and HD mapping. We'll explore the possible optimized approaches to integrate the two technologies, further developing the real-life applications of autonomous driving.
