Overview

Autonomous vehicles are rapidly becoming mainstream modes of transportation, including applications at airports, compounds and universities. The trend over the next several years is to expand their use to dense and congested urban centers.

Join this webinar as panel members discuss the technology that will be required to support autonomous shuttle evolution to move beyond existing geofencing constraints and achieve widespread deployment in complex and dynamic urban centers.

Panel members will discuss how industry leaders are forecasting technology development needs out to the year 2030 and how those forecasts are impacting design decisions today. Learn also how industry leaders are supporting autonomous vehicles' transition from geofenced applications to widespread use in urban centers.

Key Takeaways

  • Gain insight into what future autonomous shuttles will look like as geofencing constraints are overcome
  • Learn more about the possible impact of autonomous shuttles on city centers
  • Understand the technological requirements necessary to support this evolution
  • Learn how industry leaders forecast technology needs through the next decade and how those forecasts are impacting today's design decisions.
  • Gain insight into what industry leaders are doing to support the autonomous vehicle transition from geofenced to city center applications.
