The trucking industry today is focused on finding solutions to driver shortages, safety regulation compliance pressures, fuel efficiency enhancement demands, and higher driver productivity. That solution will be autonomous trucks. All truck OEMs are prioritizing some level of automated driving into their strategic plans to develop a sustainable transport solution for years to come as trucking provides the perfect platform for reaching the full potential of autonomous vehicles. The building blocks toward an autonomous truck include four main technological pillars: driveline, connectivity/communication, sensors, and algorithms/software. However, the process is expected to be slow as regulations, technology, liability, consumer adoption and societal concerns still need to be addressed.
The Latin America Automotive Market in 2015 declined by about 3% and the trend is expected to continue toward 2016. However, in terms of long-term sustainability, advancements in vehicle segment and in-vehicle features are becoming key differentiators. Moreover, disruption in the market in terms of new mobility business models is evident. This briefing will discuss the various aspects of change and evolution that the LATAM automotive landscape is experiencing and highlight the various opportunities for growth.

Autonomous cars are heavily reliant on existing infrastructure such as road signs, markings, etc., to navigate. However, the required infrastructure to support autonomous driving is subpar at most in many regions. To ensure that autonomous cars can continue driving autonomously, they require high-definition maps that can “fill in the blanks” (e.g., missing lane markings or signs can be checked on the map). This briefing will discuss where HD maps fit into the autonomous driving ecosystem, HD maps adoption, and threats to automotive navigation players by geospatial companies.
