Autonomous Mobility Corridors and Autonomous City
Supporting the deployment of autonomous systems within a city will require corridors of operations to be defined. These corridors will leverage easements within cities to support autonomous cars, trucks, shuttles, rovers, drones and other vehicles that can provide sustainable value to the city operations. In the initial phase the focus will be on ground based delivery solutions and small, under 10 lbs, drones that can provide valuable insights to both public and private industry. These small drones will also provide a tremendous amount of data to Universities and Federal testing centers to define the critical standards needed to support autonomy.
In order to support the deployment of rovers and drones, aviation easements will be defined. Avigation easement is an easement or right of overflight in the airspace above or in the vicinity of a particular property. It also includes the conditions on the impact traversing or overflight may have from the lawful operation.
Autonomous Systems Operations Control Center (ASOCC)
The State of Texas has the opportunity to define and legislate the United States “Autonomy Commerce Act of 2021”. An Act To encourage and regulate the use of autonomous systems in commerce, and for other purposes.
