Research & Development
The Autonomy Institutes priority is on the development and deployment of autonomous infrastructures. The infrastructure components, architectures, designs, development systems, installation & implementation, operation, deployments, missions, and test & measurement, and performance analysis. The goal is to capture the valuable insights from sensor and telemetry data to validate the robust, secure, and resilient systems.
Initially, early testing has been performed by small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and small ground based rovers. Necessary infrastructures will be rigorously tested with acquired knowledge that will be shared for the membership’s collective understanding of the system’s capabilities. Research will inform or influence regulatory and transportation systems compliance and readiness. It will be evaluated and made actionable as beneficial information for the company or research group providing the UAVs. The institute anticipates further research will ultimately provide guidance for education and training opportunities for future leaders in the emerging fields of autonomy.
