The Automated Vehicles Symposium convenes industry, government, and academia from around the world to address complex technology, operations, and policy issues. 1,500 thought leaders meet over 3 days to move us toward safe, automated mobility. The symposium is produced in partnership with the Transportation Research Board (TRB).
It’s time to explore the many positive aspects of drones. The FAA UAS Symposium brings enterprise UAS operators and commercial and recreational remote pilots face-to-face with the regulators who are enabling drone integration into the National Airspace System. Learn, train and troubleshoot with the entire UAS community to ensure your operations remain safe and grow along with regulations.
AUVSI’s webinar series brings important industry updates and innovations right to your desk. These programs address the issues that matter most to the industry including regulations, use cases and emerging topics such as counter UAS technology and autonomous vehicles.
Aerial cellular has garnered significant interest from both the aviation and cellular communities. However, poor coordination has led to confusion around capabilities, expectations, priorities, and standards. Aviation has difficulty understanding the capabilities of cellular, and cellular has difficulty understanding the requirements of aviation. So while the potential is clear, the path forward is not. Recent initiatives (such as ACJA, a joint activity between GSMA and GUTMA) are aimed at breaking this deadlock and providing a standards framework to enable unmanned aerial cellular. Join AUVSI and XPONENTIAL speaker, Mark Davis, to explore the latest roadmap and how to get involved.

Spoofing technology poses a significant threat to GNSS/GPS receivers — as seen in a staged attack using Tesla's Navigate on Autopilot feature. These attacks could be carried out wirelessly and remotely, exploiting security vulnerabilities in mission-critical telematics, sensor fusion, and navigation capabilities. Join AUVSI and Yonatan Zur, CEO of Regulus Cyber, to explore the security requirements for safe navigation of driverless technology.

AUVSI North Carolina is excited to announce a virtual Educational Series on Unmanned Systems starting this month to provide the right education, tools, and resources to people. This series will focus on a wide range of topics and issues in #unmannedsystems, #robotics and #automation. Every session, we will invite local, national, and international experts to provide the right education and guidance.
With the present #covid19 situation, we have taken upon ourselves the responsibility to continue providing education at your convenience at no cost.
We've all had our problems with teleoperation as 21st century technology remains stuck with 20th century user interface. But that’s changing. Advances in Mixed and Virtual Reality control will lead to a UX revolution for avatar-based robotic teleoperation where the manipulation of digital twins will translate to manipulation of a robot – or robots – in the physical world. From the 10 million dollar Avatar X-prize to the 10 billion dollars the Japanese government is sinking into developing this tech, robotic avatars are about to become big business. Is your company ready?

DARPA's Subterranean (SubT) Challenge engages international teams to deploy autonomous systems – rolling, walking, flying, and floating – to remotely map, identify, and report on artifacts discovered along underground courses. With the Tunnel and Urban Circuits completed, the Cave Circuit is coming later this year with the final event in 2021. Join AUVSI and Dr. Timothy Chung of DARPA to learn about persisting challenges with robotics, how teams are succeeding in competition while advancing unmanned capabilities, and how these lessons can benefit first responders.

Hello Texas unmanned systems community!
We hope you and all of your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. During times like these, it is even more important to have community events where we can (safely) get together.
While it might look a little different, this time we will be hosting our first all virtual meetup on Sunday, April 26, 2020, from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm.
Please grab your favorite snacks and join us for a virtual Open Forum Round Table and Networking. We plan to talk about the effects of this difficult time and how we can all pull together.
Your ideas and resources can help our frontline businesses become more resilient throughout Texas!
Those who register will receive an email on Sat., April 25th with the link information for this Sunday, April 26, 2020, online event.
Thank you and we hope you will plan on joining us!
