Our COO Wei Luo presented last week to a Harvard Business School class on entrepreneurship and value chain strategy, taught by visiting assistant professor Abhishek Nagaraj.
During the lively class, the participants discussed DeepMap’s role in the autonomous driving ecosystem as a provider of open mapping technology for automakers and suppliers worldwide.
Wei explained that DeepMap’s technology roadmap spans from Level 2+ (“hands-off” driving) to Level 5 (“mind-off” driving). DeepMap’s ultimate goal, Wei said, is to “help our customers get to production level as quickly as possible.”
Topics such as data privacy, insurance, and safety standards were also discussed.
The class was based on a case study about DeepMap authored by Shane Greenstein and Nicole Tempest Keller titled DeepMap: Charting the Road Ahead for Autonomous Vehicles.
