Autonomous vehicles promise to transform personal mobility and potentially reshape communities. This technology will impact long haul transportation, last mile delivery, and commerce through self-driving vehicles. In this session, Nuro’s Head of Robot Operations, Andrew Clare, will explore some of the non-passenger applications of autonomy, discussing robot operations, and how Nuro is tackling the challenges associated with designing vehicles and putting forth a consumer-facing service.
