Autonomous Vehicle Data Lake on AWS

The single source of truth for storing, cataloging, and searching Autonomous Vehicle data.

Align all phases of development, from ingest through annotation, model development, simulation, testing, and validation.
Tie all engineering teams together around a flexible and scalable data flywheel that not only aligns all phases of development, but also allows these workloads to be interdependent and iterative with each stage, enriching metadata and storing it back.
