Digital Twins - The Future of Virtual and Mixed Reality Robotic Avatars
We've all had our problems with teleoperation as 21st century technology remains stuck with 20th century user interface. But that’s changing. Advances in Mixed and Virtual Reality control will lead to a UX revolution for avatar-based robotic teleoperation where the manipulation of digital twins will translate to manipulation of a robot – or robots – in the physical world. From the 10 million dollar Avatar X-prize to the 10 billion dollars the Japanese government is sinking into developing this tech, robotic avatars are about to become big business. Is your company ready?

Drone Delivery Supporting Public Health
Since 2014, Zipline has been conducting drone delivery for international humanitarian operations and with the U.S. Department of Defense. Join AUVSI and XPONENTIAL Keynote Company, Zipline, to learn how that experience has evolved through the FAA Integration Pilot Program, and how those lessons are being adapted to help community healthcare partners respond to COVID-19 in the United States.

NASA’s Vision and Role to Enable Urban Air Mobility
NASA Aeronautics is focused on enabling the future of flight through long-term, game changing advanced research, concept exploration, and technology development. Through partnership with universities and industry, NASA has been on the front lines of enabling UAS operations – both small UAS operating at low altitude with the original invention of the UAS Traffic Management System and for large UAS operating in higher altitude airspace with definitive flight experiments to validate key standards, such as Detect and Avoid. AUVSI’s Brian Wynne host a discussion with Mr. Pearce about his full vision for future aviation, including what the next 50 years of commercial airline travel has in store and the first 50 years of Urban Air Mobility.

Advancing Autonomy Through DARPA Challenge to Benefit First Responders
DARPA's Subterranean (SubT) Challenge engages international teams to deploy autonomous systems – rolling, walking, flying, and floating – to remotely map, identify, and report on artifacts discovered along underground courses. With the Tunnel and Urban Circuits completed, the Cave Circuit is coming later this year with the final event in 2021. Join AUVSI and Dr. Timothy Chung of DARPA to learn about persisting challenges with robotics, how teams are succeeding in competition while advancing unmanned capabilities, and how these lessons can benefit first responders.

Aerial Connectivity Joint Activity - Bridging the Gap Between Cellular and Aviation
Aerial cellular has garnered significant interest from both the aviation and cellular communities. However, poor coordination has led to confusion around capabilities, expectations, priorities, and standards. Aviation has difficulty understanding the capabilities of cellular, and cellular has difficulty understanding the requirements of aviation. So while the potential is clear, the path forward is not. Recent initiatives (such as ACJA, a joint activity between GSMA and GUTMA) are aimed at breaking this deadlock and providing a standards framework to enable unmanned aerial cellular. Join AUVSI and XPONENTIAL speaker, Mark Davis, to explore the latest roadmap and how to get involved.
