Driverless Logistics – Autonomous Delivery Technology

It sounds like something from a science fiction movie, but if truck vehicle technology keeps developing at the rate it has in the last 10 years, could we soon be relying on ‘driverless vehicles and flying robots’ to deliver our packages? Vehicle safety developments like advanced emergency braking systems, adaptive cruise control and anti- sway technology in today’s trucks pave the potential of digital truck “convoy/ caravan” technology as a next advance on the path towards driverless vehicles.

Join us as the Columbus Region Logistics Council in partnership with the CSCMP Roundtable present “Driverless Logistics- Autonomous Delivery Technology.” At this educational event, we’ll explore the development, viability and potential of driverless truck/ drone delivery technology.

Speakers include:

  • Arda Kurt, senior research associate in Intelligent Transportation Systems and Autonomous Vehicles at The Ohio State University with expertise in autonomous vehicles, robots and related systems, telematics technology
  • Matt Van Vleet, chief strategy fulfillment officer and VP Practice Development, Pillar Technology
  • DJ Daugherty, software artisan, Pillar Technology with focus on delivering business value at break-neck speed
