Digital Mapping Innovations

ACES Northwest Network Seminar Series

Crowd-sourced cloud-stored high-definition mapping continues to revolutionize how autonomous vehicles will navigate cites.  These same technologies can provide a comprehensive picture of demand for electric vehicle charging and shared-ride services, too.  Join our panel of experts to learn what’s in store from Woven Planet, NearMap, and the Autonomy Institute in this evolving and maturing space. This event is made possible thanks to generous support from Verizon.

At this event, you’ll have an opportunity to gain insights into how digital mapping will be delivered in the Pacific Northwest, identify business opportunities and new use cases, and understand the impacts of digital mapping on existing legacy mobility services and infrastructure owners. Digital mapping is defining how machines view the world and these technologies change how we see the vast opportunities that exist in the future of connected mobility and energy services.
