Autonomous systems innovators converge on Blacksburg
Unmanned systems, such as driverless cars and drones, become more visible every day. But does the public trust the technology? That question and others will challenge leaders in the field of autonomous systems as they gather in Blacksburg for a conference Oct. 15 to 17.
Craig Woolsey, professor in the Kevin T. Crofton Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering and a conference organizer, said, “Now that these technologies are making their way into commercial products, some practical questions that researchers have had the luxury to ignore have suddenly become quite urgent.”
