Port people running autonomous vehicle demonstration

The Port Authority is running a pilot program on electric autonomous vehicles for possible use at airports. The Port tea met with representatives from Navya to run course at the JFK Aqueduct Raceway parking lot to see how these vehicles function. Each shuttle holds about a dozen passengers. It is programmed to make selected stops wherever deployed without the input from a human during the driving time. The potential use of these electric autonomous vehicles is in line with the overall transition to more sustainable energy use by 2030, and the mix of artificial intelligence as it develops. Post has an innovation team that is looking at many different areas of advancing new technologies into creating more efficient, accessible and a enhanced customer experience.
