Map­ping must be per­fect

CAR (UK) - - Tech -

GPS has made a mas­sive di‘er­ence to our daily lives. But even its big­gest ad­vo­cates have to ad­mit it isn’t per­fect.

Con­nec­tiv­ity re­lies on GPS – along with radar, li­dar and other sen­sors – to know where you are in re­la­tion to other road users. All the while there’s a driver at the wheel, pay­ing at­ten­tion, its hic­cups can be over­rid­den. But sub­tract the driver and all those sys­tems need to be law­less.

And there needs to be global ac­cord and co-op­er­a­tion, so that ev­ery­body agrees what’s a one-way street, what’s a train track and what’s a river.
