Robotic Research President Alberto Lacaze to speak on future of the autonomous vehicle industry at 2020 Automated Vehicles Symposium
Clarksburg, Md., July 30, 2020 — Robotic Research, a leading provider of autonomy software and robotic appliqué for federal and commercial consumers, announces today that Alberto Lacaze, cofounder and president, will be speaking at the virtual 2020 Automated Vehicles Symposium as a part of the Truck Platooning panel on July 30 at 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. EDT. This event is an opportunity for academia, industry leaders and policymakers to convene and collaborate on industry challenges, innovations and the future of autonomous vehicle deployment.
“We are seeing rapid acceleration in the interest of our autonomous vehicle technology in a variety of commercial sector markets: from energy to trucking, to public transportation, along with defense,” said Alberto Lacaze, president of Robotic Research. “This is an extremely exciting time for this technology and we’re glad to have a lead role in so many important high visibility programs. Robotic Research has immense support from a wide variety of customers and partners with whom we are working with to develop and deploy systems around the world. The projects are clearly illustrating the benefits and value of autonomous technology for industry, government and the public. I look forward to sharing my expertise in autonomy with the audience at AVS.”
Robotic Research provides its AutoDrive® kit to enable autonomous systems for a variety of vehicles in the commercial and defense sectors; here are recent articles about its industry-advancing programs:
- Providing AutoDrive autonomy kits to the Connecticut Department of Transportation and New Flyer enabling the automation of heavy-duty transit buses for revenue service deployment on the CTfastrak corridor. This innovation will be a first for mass transportation systems in North America.
- Testing fully autonomous unmanned shuttles. Robotic Research is on the path of operating without a safety attendant on board but rather at remote monitoring station.
- Supporting the launch of two new international deployments of Olli, the electric, autonomous shuttle manufactured by Local Motors. Olli shuttles are embedded with the AutoDrive kit to allow it to drive and navigate diverse, mixed traffic environments.
The symposium, hosted by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International in partnership with the Transportation Research Board, will take place entirely virtually from July 27-30. AUVSI is the world’s largest non-profit organization with thousands of members across the globe making up the world’s largest unmanned systems community.
