What is your exact location and how sure are you? Until recently, the margin of error was fairly substantial, but new technology is now making it possible to answer these questions with unprecedented precision. In addition to being able to pinpoint you on a map, these innovations are also shaping the next generation of automated transportation and navigation. Panelists at the leading edge of technology and mapping will discuss where we are headed.
