4 f ballegeer - seize the real world

  1. 1. Seize the real World Filip Ballegeer, 20th April 2010
  2. 2. What do we do? <ul><li>We capture the world </li></ul><ul><li>Interpretation and change detection leads to </li></ul><ul><li>birth of the world through Tele Atlas’ eyes </li></ul>
  3. 3. In other words <ul><li>As input Real World = entwined complexity. </li></ul><ul><li>Via </li></ul><ul><li>Brain-intensive work </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pro: common sense; human interpretation of the real world </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Con: quality & completeness : person & complexity dependent </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Target of CPU Technology <ul><li>Build processes to Create and maintain navigable maps by means of processes, sources and tools to support cost efficient map production to produce products & services in line with the market quality and specification requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Sources (50 000 +) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Paper maps, tourist maps, construction plans </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Private & Government Source Partners </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>National Post </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Send surveyors in the field to check reality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Terrestrial imagery </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Satellite Images </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Aerial Images </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mobile Mapping data </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Map production @ present <ul><li>Map source gathering </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Still traditional map source gathering (see history) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collect source through Mobile mapping vans </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Collect street locations & street images with high GPS accuracy mobile mapping vans </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Community input </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Traces of PND users </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Updates of the community </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web crawling </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Map production </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Still quite some manual labor needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Automation is significantly higher </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Map Delivery </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Quarterly media deliveries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E-Delivery </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Mobile Mapping Van Output <ul><li>Positional Data </li></ul><ul><ul><li>X, Y, Z coordinate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Slope </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Laser data (3D) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meta Information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Coordinate accuracy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Country </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Time of capturing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Image data </li></ul><ul><ul><li>JPEG2000 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Derived sources </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual Planes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Curvature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Centerline </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Evolutions in map production <ul><li>Map source </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Community, Community, Community </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>GPS traces </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web crawling </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Community map editor & map corrections </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Links to social networks </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic map features </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Etc.. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Map delivery </li></ul><ul><ul><li>E-Delivery </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Full maps or transaction stream </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Services </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Future: Better, Faster, More <ul><li>Better: Quality, according to expectation of customer </li></ul><ul><li>Faster: Automate, Automate, Automate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Apply Machine learning aspects => Quality gate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Image recognition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No Touch processes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hook into existing communities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>More </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic map features </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pedestrian </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ADAS </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Innovation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Internal process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Innovative products </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Quality Gate Data Mining Example <ul><li>Inspect existing data </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Tell me something about Road Segments and Junctions” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The program finds regularities, e.g. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If the Road is part of a Roundabout, it will connect to other parts of a Roundabout, with the same traffic flow, in 95% of the cases </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Find and show violations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Those roundabouts which go against direction </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Derive quality checks (which can run on all data) </li></ul>
