The Automated Vehicles Symposium moves to Orlando in 2019



The Automated Vehicles Symposium takes the show on the road in 2019 and heads to Orlando, Florida. The event takes place July 15-18, 2019 at the Orlando World Center Marriott.

As many know, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has been planning for the deployment of autonomous vehicle technologies on public roadways with the establishment of the Florida Automated Vehicles (FAV) initiative. This initiative has helped to create a framework for implementation and has actively engaged stakeholders, encouraged several research and pilot projects and has been instrumental in generating awareness for the evolution of the autonomous vehicles market with consumers. This makes Florida a leading testbed for autonomy and a natural fit to hold the Automated Vehicles Symposium next year.

The Automated Vehicles Symposium is cosponsored by the Transportation Research Board, an operating unit of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. The event is far different than other automated vehicles events. Unique to the Automated Vehicles Symposium are breakout sessions that cover a wide variety of timely topics such as safety, mobility and energy and environmental impacts of AVs, and so much more, each designed to give attendees the competitive edge. 

The Automated Vehicles Symposium not only includes specialized breakouts and expert-led plenary sessions, it also includes 50 exhibiting companies and hundreds of opportunities for attendees to network with fellow industry professionals and colleagues. It's an investment of time and money well spent for those who want to learn about and shape the future of automated vehicles.

Registration for the Automated Vehicles Symposium 2019 will launch in February 2019. Visit for updates.
