Business Insights

In the very near future, cars, robots, mobile phones and augmented reality glasses will incorporate inexpensive and efficient depth sensing. This will quickly brings us to a new world in which 3D maps with accuracy of 1 cm or less are readily available. 

The availability of 3D maps will create great opportunities for many industries to invent new services, achieve new levels of user experience and accumulate new knowledge. Eventually, the value of 3D maps will exceed the value of traditional maps (such as Google Maps) by many times!  

In this presentation we will explore business opportunities enabled by 3D maps in automotive (for example, Mobileye’s Road Experience Management), home robots (fully autonomous personal assistants, vacuum cleaners, etc.), logistics and other sectors. We will also discuss the synergy among different devices enabled by merging 3D maps in the real time to perform complex tasks in warehouse management, industrial maintenance and repair and other domains.
