Elon Musk's lidar bashing has grabbed public attention and
dominated conversations about autonomous drive technology, but his
dismissal of high definition mapping has flown under the radar.
According to Shaun Stewart, a Waymo veteran and new advisor and
investor at the mapping startup Carmera, we're missing out on an
important discussion. Stewart talks about the importance of mapping
at Waymo, why Carmera's approach was so appealing to him, and how
he's supporting their effort to build out HD maps that faithfully
reflect the changing environments that autonomous vehicles will
have to navigate.
