Airside Automated Ground Vehicle Technology (AGVT) Demonstration to Support Airport Operations

Automated ground vehicle technology (AGVT) is increasingly being used to support road transportation, and ACRP Research Report 219: Advanced Ground Vehicle Technologies (AGVT) for Airside Operationsidentified potential opportunities for its use for airport operations. Areas for possible use include mowing, perimeter security, foreign object debris (FOD) detection, and other applications. Recognizing the unique challenges to using AGVT in an airport setting, research is needed to conduct a demonstration to better understand its uses, benefits, and limitations. The objective of this research is to conduct an on-airport demonstration of a selected AGVT application to support airport operations. The research would include technology and application selection, stakeholder coordination, planning, deployment for testing, documenting findings, and recommendations.
