Autonomous transportation is an exciting future we are all anticipating. But how do we make sure autonomous land-, water-, and air-based couriers and transporters are safe and secure? How do we ensure the necessary physical and virtual infrastructure required to support them on land, on the water, and in the air?
JHU’s campus environment, with its existing infrastructure inside an urban area, as well as Johns Hopkins APL’s controlled campus and more rural location, makes Hopkins an excellent test bed for this line of research, which will have a visible and exciting impact on campus life. The result of this research is a powerful argument for assurance that propels the widespread adoption of autonomous couriers and transportation systems.
