With the expansion of autonomy and artificial intelligence across domains, there is an increasing need for systems that are reliable, predictable, and secure. In support of this mission and pursuit of assured autonomy, the XPONENTIAL 2021 program tracks address research and developments pertaining to the technology, policy and regulatory environment, and the system into which these technologies will integrate.

The Big Picture: Ecosystem Integration

Advanced technologies should have a constructive and ethical influence on society, and the integration of these systems into a complex environment requires the deliberate pursuit of public acceptance and trust. Take a deep dive into critical considerations such as human-machine teaming, safety, noise, certification, ethics, human factors, modeling & simulation.


It Techs a Village: Platforms, Hardware, and Software

The components that enable unmanned and automated systems to function appropriately must be designed to perform in such a way that they are deemed safe and dependable. This requires that each component and system be tested, evaluated, and safeguarded against attack. Explore how sensors, software, vehicles, propulsion systems and more improve current and future operations.


The Unmanned Behind the Curtain: Technology & Autonomous Infrastructure

Advancements in technology and infrastructure are required in the progression to assured autonomy. Therefore, there will be an ever-increasing emphasis on the physical and intelligent infrastructure supporting autonomous systems. Sessions in this track will feature panel discussions, presentations, and roundtables on the topics of edge computing, modeling & simulation, R&D, communication technology, AI/ML, blockchain, Big Data, cybersecurity, and other key concepts that will lead to the safe integration of autonomous vehicles into a complex environment.


Laws & Orders: Policy & Governance

To ensure the safe operation of unmanned and automated systems, industry must engage with leaders influencing the regulations, policies, and standards. This track will feature expert panels discussing certification, data privacy, public acceptance and trust, cybersecurity, AI, regulatory updates, global harmonization, and more. These conversations will accelerate deployment and adoption of unmanned and automated technology across domains.
