I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, better known by most as CES thanks to HERE, who included me in a small group of professionals that they invited to Las Vegas to see how Location Technology is leading the way to an Autonomous Future. The main focus of the exhibit was show casing HERE’s vision on the Autonomous Innovative Future built on location technology, including smart cities, autonomous vehicles, smart fleet tracking, advances in mobility, drones, and high speed transportation.
Soon it may not only be our roads that are congested. The growing popularity of drones, whether for recreational or commercial use, has highlighted the challenge of managing traffic in low-altitude airspace. Moreover, in the future Autonomous World, the traffic of both airborne and ground vehicles will need to be well orchestrated to ensure safety and efficiency.

Drone Aerial View of Signal Hill Newfoundland
Signal Hill is a scenic hill that overlooks the city of St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador. Cabot Tower situated on the highest point of Signal Hill was built between 1897-1900, to commemorate both Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and the 400th anniversary of John Cabot’s (Giovanni Caboto) voyage to the New World.
