How will automated vehicles transform our lives in the future? What are the remaining challenges that hold back autonomous vehicles, from self-driving cars to uncrewed aerial vehicles to autonomous transit, from the mass market? How much can we trust the autonomous navigation and guidance of these cyber-physical systems? What sensors/signals should we use that provide continuous, trustworthy, and secure flow of information needed for autonomous navigation? How is the robustness and integrity addressed by different stakeholders and industries? Seek answers to these questions, and ask more, in this panel on ground, sea-borne, and airborne vehicles.
