Sessions Now Available On-Demand:


Assured Autonomy



With an XPONENTIAL 2021 theme of Assuring Autonomy, AUVSI is excited to welcome back XPONENTIAL 2020 keynote speaker Cara LaPointe to kick-off this webinar series. As with any technology, unmanned and autonomous systems need to prove themselves as safe and practical options that can reliably perform the operations for which they are designed before they can be seamlessly integrated into everyday life. If society does not trust the technology, its potential benefits will not be realized. Built into the fabric of that trust is the fact that this technology must be robust, secure and resilient at all levels.

Join AUVSI and Dr. Cara LaPointe, Co-Director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Assured Autonomy, to learn about the XPONENTIAL theme, the key pillars and how we can work to create an assured autonomous future.

Noise Pollution and Social Acceptance



Recent advancements and interests in UAM have resulted in products generating increased noise – a major technical and social challenge that hinders the enabling of UAM and impacts the goals of assured autonomy. AUVSI is excited to welcome Onur Bilgen of Rutgers University and Michael McNair, Vice President, Aerospace, of SAE-ITC to address their work being done on a low-noise propulsion system as it relates to assured autonomy.

Investing on Safety



Safety is more than vehicle attributes. It starts with company culture and grows from concept design through product verification. Early investment is critical to achieving safety goals. Leveraging transportation domain expertise and state-of-the-art data and analytic methods enables developers and engineers to answer questions quickly and cost effectively and provide outputs that are ready to be immediately applied to the safety need. As a global transportation safety leader, VTTI works side by side with automotive companies, suppliers, and technology companies to help ensure that the next generation of vehicles and infrastructure will advance the safety of our transportation system.

Join Michelle Chaka of the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and AUVSI to take a deeper look at safety and how it is a necessary component to assuring autonomy.

Digital Infrastructure for Intelligent and Autonomous Systems



New infrastructure is the foundation of large transformations. In order for the United States to become a leader in enabling Intelligent and Autonomous Cities, we need to lead the adoption of the Intelligent and Autonomous Infrastructure. Join this panel of experts to learn more about the importance of infrastructure as it relates to assuring autonomy.
