As we move more closer to autonomous driving, access to accurate mapping and traffic data becomes indispensable. Instead of every car company trying to develop maps, road condition & traffic data wouldn't it make sense to have a central agency similar to National Weather Service to collect and disseminate this data? Car manufacturers can source this data and customize as they see fit - similar to phone carriers customizing Android OS.
I think that would free up lot of resources from car companies so they can focus on building great products...
