About the Presentation:
Rapid and significant technology advancements have enabled the emerging global revolution in transportation, by land, air and sea. Today, driverless cars are delivering passengers in Lake Nona and driverless trucks are delivering cargo between Tampa and Orlando. This year, un-piloted aircraft began delivering passengers in China, UAE and France, referred to as Urban Air Mobility (UAM). Next year, demonstrations of UAM are scheduled in Dallas and Los Angeles. Now is the time to prepare for the emerging transportation revolution.
