Today on the Reporters' Roundtable podcast, I'm hosting two innovators in the car navigation space to talk about the future of their industry. Inrix CTO Craig Chapman and Waze VP of Platform Di-Ann Eisnor will join me to discuss topics such as sensor-based vs. phone-based traffic data and the potential for crowd-sourced mapping.

We're also going to be talking about vehicle-to-vehicle communication, the gamification of traffic reporting, and what I consider the holy grail of automotive navigation: helping drivers find parking places (see Tiny start-up tackles parking ).

If you have a question for my guests, or an issue you'd like to see them discuss, comment below or e-mail me at, and then watch the show live, noon Pacific today at, where you can also chat with other listeners in real time. You can catch the recorded version of the show later in your podcast catcher or on the Reporters' Roundtable blog.

See you at noon PT!
