Get your Goods: Unmanned Systems and 3D Printing

Technology is redefining how we get what we want – exactly when we want it – with the advent of three delivery innovations: autonomous cars, unmanned aerial vehicles (also called drones), and 3D printing. Commercial drones will make rooftop-to-rooftop delivery services possible. Autonomous cars will fundamentally change our relationship with our vehicles, eliminating road rage from your daily commute. Can’t find what you want in the store? Make it exactly to your liking at home, on demand, with a 3D printer. This session will explore the latest innovations in these groundbreaking delivery methods.

  1. When can we expect to see package delivery by drones? What policies do we need in place to make this a reality?
  2. What are market projections for 3D printers? When will we see a 3D printer in every home? What will we be able to print – and using what materials?
  3. How will autonomous cars change the nature of car culture?
