Our mission is focused on three areas, Research, Partnerships, and Economic Development. We aim to coordinate research and partnerships in the burgeoning industry of autonomous vehicles, as well as stimulate economic development. Our goal is to be at the center point of larger proposals with the federal government and the state of Florida. We will achieve that through partnerships with industry leader like Suntrax, among others, and suppliers like Intel, nVidia, etc. We will stimulate the economic development of the industry by enabling functions for Florida industries and research parks.

Autonomous Vehicle technology and planned...

(02/23/2018) Autonomous Vehicle technology and planned communities by Jake Polumbo A recent article in Realtor Magazine highlights the excitement around the impact AV technology  will have on planned communities. “Prime real estate will also be unlocked for new home construction. Places once used for parking lots, auto dealerships, and gas stations will become obsolete with self-driving cars. That may free up prime real estate for housing ...Builders will be able to get significantly higher density, and consumers will be buying a home where 100 percent of the square footage is livable,” Rick Palacios, Jr. writes in a Sept. 4 article tiitled “How Driverless Cars will reshape housing?” Closer to home, Disney World in Orlando is planning for self-driving busses from hotels to theme parks. Epcot Center was originally envisioned by Walt Disney as the first “smart city” and will likely stay on the cutting edge of AV technology, especially with the Florida SunTrax facility so close to the park. In southwest Florida, Babcock Ranch designers are well along in their planning to use AV technology in a solar-powered town using autonomous shuttle runs to grocery stores and shopping centers;  their plan is to enable residents to use apps on their phones to arrange group trips to the mall or single-person stops at the market.  Their ultimate goal is for residents to realize they don’t need to own a car anymore and to treat “mobility as a service.” Recent Articles: 11/13/2017 Smart City in Arizona 11/12/2017      Sustainability in the South Shore of Boston 10/10/2017 Babcock Ranch Self Driving Shuttle Network
