• Webcast: Solving the Data Challenge for Autonomous Driving

Today's major developments in the mobility sector contribute to one common vision: Seamless transportation in autonomous vehicles on interconnected road networks. One of the core technologies in this visionary mobility concept is – obviously – the autonomous vehicle, which is capable of sensing its environment and moving safely with little or no human input. Therefore, it is necessary to train the car with real environment data, which needs to be collected, transferred, pre-processed and stored beforehand. This process requires a complex chain of technologies from different providers.
 
On July 15, 2020 the NTT Technology Experience Lab brought together several highly experienced technology partners to build up a holistic solution, the “Data Garage”:

B-plus: Data recording on the road
IBM: Data storage on premise
Incenda AI: Data processing with intelligent algorithms
Lenovo: Hardware systems for data storage and AI
NTT Global Data Centers: Data transfer and upload into the cloud

The webcast answered questions on how autonomous vehicle training data can be recorded, pre-processed, stored and uploaded into the cloud. 

The webcast recording in its entirety can be found below:
