The study offers a six-part strategic plan to root autonomy in the region, and grow its opportunities for all
Although Pittsburgh is an established hub, its gains are at risk due to regional competition, a challenging regulatory environment for testing and deployment, and insufficient coordinated support for the sector, the study found.
The study offers a six-part strategic plan with specific strategies to reinforce the region’s current strengths, attract and retain talent, and root emerging companies in the region.
Realizing the Vision for Pittsburgh’s Autonomy Ecosystem
While autonomous on-road vehicles are the mostly widely known applications of autonomy, they are only a part of a much wider landscape for autonomous mobile systems applications. Enabled by new technology convergence areas, significant change is coming to physical devices of any scale that both move and may be equipped with some form of sensing and decision-making system to intelligently perform tasks and navigate their environment. Many tasks that require human or machine spatial movement are potential prospects for automated mobile systems approaches, and this opens up vast and diverse market potentials for disruptive industries.
There is a large-scale economic development opportunity for regions that have a competitive edge in technologies and talent required to research, develop, and build complex integrated autonomous mobile systems products.
