Delivering Last Mile Innovation with Autonomous Vehicles & Robotic AI

John Sviokla

With transportation continuing to be the leading cause of CO2 emissions, we have an opportunity and an obligation to transition away from using personally owned combustion engine vehicles for running errands to fully electric autonomous vehicles.

Autonomous vehicles have made significant progress over the past few years and while that progress has been a boon for the industry, some major questions remain. Consumer behavior has changed since the pandemic, skyrocketing demand for home delivery with a delightful experience. What does the future hold for the last mile, and what does the future of autonomous delivery look like?

In this webinar, host John Sviokla welcomes Cosimo Leipold, Head of Partnerships at Nuro, where he manages business strategy and partnership development. As one of Nuro‚Äôs first employees, Cosimo had a huge impact in bringing the first fully unmanned, on-road vehicle for local deliveries to market. 

Together they discuss advances in robotic AI & autonomous vehicles as well as innovation in last mile delivery and how we can expect AVs to impact the logistics industry over the next decade.
