NEXT WEEK: Automated Vehicles Symposium 2019 to Convene in Orlando
Conference for the automated vehicle industry to convene on July 15 to July 18

ARLINGTON, Va. — The Association for Unmanned Systems International (AUVSI) and the Transportation Research Board (TRB), will host the annual conference Automated Vehicles Symposium 2019 at the Orlando World Center Marriott on July 15 to 18. The symposium will bring together leading experts from industry, government and academia to discuss the future of automated vehicles.

The exhibit hall will include representatives from over 45 companies across a variety of industries to showcase the current state of automated vehicles, and where it is headed. A new feature for the event is the Outdoor Demos, where attendees will have the opportunity to see the future of automated vehicles in motion on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 16 and 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Outdoor Demos will be provided by Connected Wise, Dataspeed, EasyMile, Luminar, Perrone Robotics, Stantec and Transdev.

Over 80 posters, including presentations from students researching at University Transportation Centers throughout the Southeast, will also be presented at the symposium. The Poster Sessions offer the authors the opportunity to present their papers and engage in-depth technical discussions with attendees.

The symposium will also feature a recruitment fair, organized by AUVSI, which will help leading technology companies identify and recruit recent or soon-to-be graduates. Symposium exhibitors and benefactors will also have the opportunity to present the latest technology developments, partnership opportunities and other happenings in the industry at the Enterprise Solution Series.

In addition, keynote addresses by Chris Urmson, the co-founder and CEO of autonomous technology developer Aurora; Administrator Nicole R. Nason, administrator of the Federal Highway Administration (FHA); and Raymond P. Martinez, administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will be devoted to driving the industry forward by focusing on innovation, policy, and safety.
