University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute will highlight UTARI’s research and development in the areas of intelligent transportation systems at the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Conference in Orlando from May 4-7, 2015.
The conference is expected to attract more than 8,000 attendees from 55 different countries.
UTARI has an emerging capability in the specification, modeling, simulation and development of intelligent transportation systems. Working with the U.S. Army, UTARI developed a research roadmap for autonomy-enabled systems on military bases and government installations. In addition, the institute developed industry and academic partnerships that position UTARI to be a driving leader in the integration of unmanned vehicles into manned vehicle environments.
UTARI is gaining foundational knowledge to move beyond smart cars and into the integration of unmanned vehicles with regular manned vehicles. The modeling and simulation of these environments will be instrumental in designing tomorrow’s heterogeneous transportation system.
UTARI has its own full-time staff to manage and execute projects, which offers the ability to give continuity and stability across a broad range of technology sectors. UTARI in-house expertise is increased through access to UT Arlington faculty and students, including student interns working at UTARI. Access to government, industry and academic experts ensures the effective integration of multiple technologies and solutions in this emerging field.
The AUVSI Unmanned Systems Conference is an annual event that allows innovators in the unmanned systems and robotics industry to explore the latest technology. The conference features more than 100 technical sessions, panels and workshops that will include the industry's top speakers and leading experts.
