Phil Magney, founder of VSI Labs, presents the “Improving the Safety and Performance of Automated Vehicles Through Precision Localization” tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.

How does a self-driving car know where it is? Magney explains how autonomous vehicles localize themselves against their surroundings through the use of a variety of sensors along with precision maps. He explores the pros and cons of various localization methods and the trade-offs associated with each of them. He also examines the challenges of keeping mapping assets fresh and up-to-date through crowdsourcing.
