Florida is Setting the Pace in Autonomous Vehicle Innovation

The regulatory environment in Florida under the leadership of Governor Scott and State Senator Brandes is helping to usher in the Autonomy Economy.

On the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s Bottom Line public affairs program, I discuss innovation in the autonomous vehicle community and Florida’s leadership in autonomous vehicle regulation.

Every aspect of transportation and mobility is going to change. For example, a child born in the last four years will never drive a vehicle on a public road. Full level 5 autonomous vehicles will take children to and from school with the parents of those children being fully in charge of the experience as when the child can exit the vehicle.

The future of transporting children to school in autonomous vehicles will be possible in Florida because of the regulatory environment that the State of Florida has created under the leadership of Governor Scott and State Senator Brandes.

Florida is opening the doors to allow the future of innovation to prosper. From children riding to school in autonomous vehicles to the tourism industry developing niche autonomous vehicle services, we are only beginning to scratch the surface of what is possible.

New businesses will be created in Florida around autonomy due to the regulatory environment and these homegrown businesses will help the State to usher in the Autonomy Economy.
