PAVE Virtual Panel: AVs at Work: Moving Goods
Most of the public attention has been focused on the consumer-facing personal mobility applications of autonomous driving technology, but AVs could start improving your life before you ever get the chance to ride in one. In this PAVE virtual panel, we’ll look at the ways autonomous vehicles are improving the movement of goods, from long-haul trucking to “middle mile” to last-mile delivery. We’ll explore why demand for logistics and delivery has been growing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the constraints this industry will face without autonomous vehicles, and how automation can make the system safer, more efficient and more resilient.
