Autonomous Vehicle Technology Sensors (Air, Land and Sea)

This virtual reality workshop is designed to deliver a primer on the sensor technologies that are impacting the aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment and marine autonomous technologies industries. Educators from these disciplines face many challenges from the rapid integration and prohibitive financial nature of these technologies. Jobs of the future will require a foundational level of knowledge of these sensors. Through hands-on experience and discussion, we will cover industry trends and the future impact of advanced technology integration resulting from autonomous technologies. Attendees will be prepared to use this technology in their classroom using portable, cost efficient experimentation and exercises.

This workshop is open to middle and high school educators and 2-year/4-year college faculty. 

Attendees will be provided virtual reality headsets and controls for this workshop.
