The Think Tank will focus on the current capabilities of autonomous drones and vehicles, the links between IoT and data workflows in the autonomous vehicle ecosystem, and how robotic fleets will engage with commercial logistics and urban mobility spheres. Headlining the agenda will be an interactive panel on The Ecosystem of Autonomy, a roundtable discussion on Connected Mobility and Logistics, case studies on the Smart/Safe City of the Future and a keynote on Future Forward Thinking on the Industry, which will provide insights into future development scenarios.
