The XPONENTIAL 2023 Breakout Sessions feature a variety of key topics and themes relevant to drafting a Blueprint for Autonomy.

Designing Autonomy — Data Foundation

Sponsored by: 

In the design of autonomy, a strong foundation for data management is necessary. Whether it is the development of data standards, collection techniques, or processing and design for AI / ML, these discussions are paramount.

Keywords: Data management, data processing, data standards, data collection, data privacy, data storage, data science, data analysis, Policy/standards to realize this data plan, data taxonomy, data security, data sovereignty

Designing Autonomy & Technical Development

Technologies are rapidly evolving, and our community needs to share research and achievements that will propel the industry into a new stage. Topics can include, but are not limited to, computer vision, uncrewed machine interface, sensor capabilities, path planning, software that supports mobility and enhances hardware, and hardware that is reliable and creates new opportunities for improved operations and seamless integration.

Keywords: R&D, AI / ML, ethics, vehicle, hardware, software, sensors, propulsion, batteries, blockchain, communication tech / 5G , design standards, design principles

Operationalizing Autonomy

Sponsored by: 

To operationalize autonomy, we must develop a plan to turn abstract into reality. The key constructs that will allow for operationalization of autonomy include establishment of infrastructure, both digital and physical, as well as testing, certification, and standards development, workforce and training, and identification of measurable and actionable outcomes.

Keywords: Testing and Certification, digital infrastructure, physical infrastructure, charging stations, sky ports, port cities, freight docks, DEI, training, human – machine teaming, human factors, skills gap, electrification, standards development, lessons learned

Integrating Autonomy — Policy & Regulation

For the safe and seamless integration of autonomy into society, industry and government stakeholders must work together to develop policies, processes, and frameworks to support the laws that govern these systems and their implementation. Topics will relate to federal, state, and local authorities and the evolving regulatory environment.

Keywords: Federal policy & regulations, state & local regulations, grassroots initiatives and content involving federal, state, and local agencies (FAA, NHTSA, NTSB, DOIT, IMO, NACo, State DOT, etc.), technical standards, security standards, proof of concepts, demonstrations, experimental development

Integrating Autonomy — Public Engagement & Impact

Community trust in autonomy will stem from exposure to and education of these technologies and the opportunities they bring to society. Whether it is government or industry organizations, educational bodies, public safety stakeholders, insurance companies, or others, each play a vital role in addressing public concerns and questions about robotics, as well as the social and environmental benefits and broad use cases.

Keywords: Education, ethics, public safety, law enforcement, risk calculations, insurance, sustainability, ESG, community outreach and engagement, social benefits, media/communications, transparency/trust, privacy standards and organizations

Realizing Autonomy

Autonomy creates new opportunities for industries, organizations, and governments alike. Many of the technologies can be used cross-domain and cross-sector, and understanding their applications and advantages helps to increase adoption by end users — leading to market growth and increased revenue. Topics include use cases across industries and government sectors, the impact on future mobility and inspections, and investor insights.

Keywords: supply chain and logistics, freight, shipping, delivery, warehouse, future mobility, urban air mobility, conservation / blue technology, drones as a service, inspections, mapping, surveying, DoD acquisition, VC, triple bottom line, human-teaming, workflows


Public safety and emergency services professionals engage in leadership-level discussions surrounding the use of sUAS for public safety and emergency response missions. This is a complete educational experience surrounding law enforcement, fire rescue, and emergency management drone operations.

AUVSI Defense

AUVSI Defense is where military leaders and industry executives set the course for innovation to support critical missions. This specialized program equips the armed services and their partners with the information and relationships they need to meet constantly shifting threats around the globe.

Enterprise and Government Solutions

As technologies, industry, and regulations continue to evolve, uncrewed systems are already solving real-world problems. Connect directly with solutions providers that can meet your current challenges with their commercially available technologies and services. This track is both educational and promotional, with the emphasis placed on learning from case studies. Expect to see how specific issues were overcome with an innovative uncrewed system, how that user integrated with their operations, and the insights and benefits that resulted.
