Mapping the interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians

Mapping the interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians

  LISTEN HERE OR WHEREVER YOU GET YOUR PODCASTS

This is an interview with Jacob Baskin 

The curbside might not seem like the most obvious focus point in terms of mapping the urban environment but when you start to think of the curb as a highly regulated space and when you consider the number of arrivals and departures that that place on the curb in crowded urban cities you might just change your mind. The curbside is actually an interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians that has to enable a wide variety of use cases. Coord is helping organizations map the curbside, the assets on the curb and the locations of regulated spaces. 

Most cities simply don't have detailed maps of the features that exist on or near the curb and regulation is almost always done using signs. This can lead to confusion about the actual permitted use cases and for reasons stated in the interview signs are not always as machine-readable as you might think. So not only are signs not always the best answer when it comes to communicating the laws around parking in a certain area to humans, they are also not the best way of helping autonomous vehicles understand the regulations around different curbside areas.

A platform that takes video and creates 3D mapping layers based on that data. The video can be from avariety of different sensors, does not need to be vertically looking down on the geography and each 3D output is georeferenced!

GeoNode is an open-source geospatial platform, catalog, and content management system (CMS). The general functionality can be most likened to ArcGIS Online. Users can create filtered searches for their choice of geospatial data, by using keywords, and even filtering locations by selecting a bounding box on a map.

Drones generate a lot of data. So much data, that the software intended to process it needs for it to be thinned before it can be used. It can be tricky to dumb the data down, intelligently. You may be needing to reduce 300 points in a 1x1m square, down to a single point. Generally, these complicated decisions will be streamlined through use of algorithms that can help smooth the overall data.
