The '2017 – Year of Autonomy' (YoA) initiative has the vision of bringing together innovators and users from across land, air and marine autonomy to address key challenges and share learning in a series of seminars/workshops to be held throughout 2017.

This 5th event in the YoA series focuses on Energy Management, covering: 

  • energy harvesting
  • battery/power management systems
  • power storage/docking and charging
  • communications and sensing/energy efficiency enablers.
As the technology behind autonomy gathers pace it is vital that we have a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with these systems.

This YoA event is organised by Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Plymouth City Council, the University of Plymouth and the South West Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications.

It is open to businesses, academia and research institutes - all organisations with an interest in autonomy; in the design, manufacture, specification and operation of land, air and sea autonomous systems, and particularly the energy management aspects.

This event aims to foster closer co-operation and partnering across industry, academia and government. 

It brings together key experts from different sectors in air, land and sea to explore the interaction between the art of the possible and the practicalities of what should be achieved through scene-setting presentations from each sector/industry. A workshop and discussion session follows to identify common challenges and establish where opportunities lie for shared learning and best practice.
