PAVE Virtual Panel: AVs at Work: National Security
Modern autonomous driving technology was birthed by defense needs and kickstarted into life by the DARPA Challenges — and it continues to be an important technological priority for the U.S. military. In this PAVE virtual panel, we will look beyond our normal focus on the public roadways to examine how the military is using AV technology to prepare for a future with an increasingly automated national defense. We’ll explore how the U.S. Department of Defense is using autonomous vehicle technology to modernize its ground vehicle systems, improving safety, efficiency and readiness.
