TerraGo vice president of worldwide sales calls it a dramatic shift away from proprietary formats.
Whether it is self-driving cars or surveying, maps on record don’t always reflect physical reality. Roads are modified, renamed, closed for construction, etc., and in some cases it becomes relevant if there are potholes or other hazards awaiting vehicles. In a survey project, these physical realities can play a major role if a surveyor is engaged to help chart a route for a truck trying to access a remote mining site over difficult-to-navigate terrain, or even in a case where surveying activities are taking place on urban streets or at a construction site with unforeseen hazards.

As a central part of system automation and informed decision making, business analytics and the use of big data will play a major role in supply chain, logistics and infrastructure management. Today, the Internet of Things (IoT), with its sensors that record information along the points in the supply chain and transportation infrastructures, can alert managers of traffic jams, infrastructure repair needs and the timeliness of goods transport. This sensor tracking is particularly effective when it links into GPS tracking and geographic information systems (GIS).

The issues are now squarely on the radar of driverless technology developers, LIDAR and sensor manufacturers. Now it is a matter of taking each issue and developing the right technologies and man-machine interfaces that can make driverless cars not only autonomous, but responsive to the human foibles of driving in heavy traffic, coupled with the need to resort to technology alternatives when primary systems fail.
