Technology insertion of artificial intelligence (AI) is expanding many facets of our modern-day life. In parallel, there are ambitious plans to bring unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) operations into the national airspace and self-driving cars into our streets. Endowing these autonomous, safety-critical cyber-physical systems (CPS) with AI could bring numerous opportunities. But how about the new challenges that would arise and what about the unintended consequences? This panel features transportation, critical infrastructure, and commercial perspectives with PNT experts discussing opportunities and challenges of AI-enabled navigation in smart cities.
