Data access sorely needs to be democratized. At present, there are only three companies that possess truly useful mapping and navigation data – Tesla, Google, and Uber.
If you are a smaller developer or entrepreneur, you’re simply out of luck if none of these Big Three companies supports your project. But with the Dispatch platform, a much more open, transparent data-sharing system is possible. In turn, this will empower an even greater pace of innovation in the autonomous vehicle space.
