The event brought together the geospatial community from industry, non-profit groups, associations, academia and all levels of government. It showcased the latest information on the technologies and their applications in 3D Mapping and included presentations, discussions, demos, and poster displays promoting technologies, related to the latest collection, analysis, and visualization software / hardware, from GIS to Virtual and Augmented Reality.
Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the biggest technology show in the world, known by most techies as CES (Consumer Electronics Show). HERE, an international company based out of Germany known for data and location related services, included me in a group of professionals that they invited to experience their vision of an Autonomous Future and the products and services that they believe will help make it possible.
Using state of the art displays, over sized high-resolution screens and custom animation, they wowed visitors from the moment they stepped inside. Some of the highlights that I was able to take back from my time spent with the various staff of HERE are included here …
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.
Fujitsu and HERE Technologies today announced a plan to link their respective technologies into powerful integrated solutions for customers developing advanced mobility services and autonomous cars. Fujitsu is a leading system integrator with data analytics, AI and high-performance computing technologies, while HERE is a leading provider of accurate and reliable digital mapping and advanced location-based data services and technology. HERE has systematized its approach to location-based data services with the HERE Open Location Platform.
