The Teraki platform, built by AI startup Teraki, automatizes intelligent sensor processing for telematics, video, and 3D point cloud data. The platform is developed with a single ideological concept/goal: Deliver scalability to manage the increasing need to handle sensor data from vehicles and devices in high volumes. Here’s how the team is leveraging AWS IoT services to do it.
AWS has enabled auto tech startup Renovo to keep up with logs generated by vehicles and support systems in a manner that does not require it to over-provision processing and focus on the problem space: operating a vehicle or fleet of vehicles. Director of Data Services Khalid Azam explains how.
Junwei Bao, Co-founder and CEO of LiDAR technology developer Innovusion, and Jason Ferns, its Director of Marketing and Applications, sat down to chat with us about LiDAR and autonomous driving.
For autonomous vehicles, much of the world is uncharted territory. That’s because the maps designed for humans “can’t be consumed by robots,” says Tom Wang, the director of engineering at DeepMap, a Palo Alto startup that provides HD maps for self-driving cars.
While data is extremely important in all technology industries, this importance is perhaps taken to another level with autonomous driving. Autonomous vehicles, for example, will generate roughly four to five terabytes of data an hour, meaning a fleet of 2,000 cars will generate more data a day than Facebook. That’s per Chris Heiser, Co-Founder and CEO of Renovo, a startup built to help companies process these new streams of data.
Founded in 2015, Nauto is focused on building a data platform to make vehicles on our roads safer while also improving the technology for autonomous vehicles in the future.
Chris Anderson has always loved using the latest technology on the relative cheap. Applying technology from what he calls the “peace dividend from the smartphone wars,” Anderson started building his own drones and in 2007, launched DIY Drones, a central resource for makers and amateur enthusiasts. He’s since gone on to launch DIY Robocars, a similar resource for robocar builders and racers.
Tina Barr breaks down why autotech startups Nauto, DeepMap, and TuSimple are AWS’s Hot Startups for March 2018.
What’s more fun than an all-night hackathon in Vegas? Why, a Vegas hackathon involving self-driving cars, of course. During AWS’s 2017 re:Invent conference, 25 teams were given kits to build an autonomous car that could learn how to drive around a track on its own.
