Summary "In a unique effort to offer an introduction to the world of autonomous technologies, SAE International and AUVSI are pleased to present the reader with Autonomous Technologies: Applications That Matter. Focusing on nonmilitary use of autonomous mobile devices, the two organizations have teamed and invited authors from multiple areas of expertise to discuss how the concept of autonomy is becoming a more natural fit with the way we live."-- Foreword
"This book examines a number of economically important areas in which unmanned and autonomous vehicles, also understood here as autonomous technologies, are already used or soon will be. ...Over the years, the DARPA Challenges in the United States have galvanized interest in autonomous cars, making them a real possibility in the mind of the public, but autonomous and unmanned vehicles have been increasingly employed in many roles on land, in the water, and in the air. ...Co-published by SAE International and AUVSI, Autonomous Technologies: Applications That Matter will assist the reader in identifying profitable opportunities and avoiding costly misconceptions with respect to civilian applications of autonomous vehicle technologies as it brings together chapters on how air, water, and ground vehicles are becoming ever more used and appreciated."-- Publisher website
