Pittsburgh is a region of makers and innovators. Our region has shown time and time again that we can come together and remake ourselves through innovation, determination and sheer grit. Today the Pittsburgh region is faced with a new transformational opportunity, the opportunity presented by the autonomous mobile systems sector, or autonomy. As has long been predicted, Pittsburgh’s autonomy sector has reached a critical mass; it has grown organically from an emerging to an established cluster with the opportunity to dominate the global market in autonomous mobile systems.
