Understanding current state-of-the-art and anticipating major advances for autonomous systems, either in product development or on the manufacturing floor, is critical for many industries. This conference will offer a unique view into MIT research on tools and infrastructure for autonomous systems, as well as MIT’s vision of the future for this topic.

The conference has three major themes:
  * Autonomous vehicles (land, air, and sea)
  * Autonomous manufacturing
  * Platforms for autonomous systems – connectivity, infrastructure, and socio-economic implications of autonomy and policies

Join us to learn how to prepare for the increasing presence of autonomy and how to incorporate it to make your business more competitive, safer, adaptive, and more effective.

This conference will benefit both technologists who want to understand the details and inner workings, advantages, and limitations of autonomy, as well as executives who want to arm themselves to make better strategic decisions.

As of March 5, 2020, MIT has established new policies and guidelines on travel, events, and visitors due to developments of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). As indicated by President L. Rafael Reif, MIT is committed to making responsible and safe decisions for our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. For our campus community, current risk level associated with COVID-19 is low; however, the Institute is taking measures to protect the community. Part of these measures consist of eliminating large gatherings with visitors on campus. (You can review all of MIT's new policies and guidelines regarding COVID-19 here).
