TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 23, 2021 — Verizon (NYSE: VZ) will provide its millimeter-wave 5G network to help Robotic Research enable operations of autonomous shuttles at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego as part of the 90-day program, ExecutiveBiz reported June 3.

Robotic Research’s nSight Vault storage service is planned to receive system and sensor data collected by Local Motors’ self-driving shuttle, with Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network enabling the transmission of gathered information in support of the autonomous shuttle pilot project.

“Leaders across the Department of Defense understand the mission-critical role 5G plays in unlocking innovation for the military, and strategic partners like Robotic Research are bringing to life some of the exciting technologies that are possible when you integrate 5G,” said Jennifer Chronis, senior vice president of Verizon’s public sector business and a 2021 Wash100 awardee.
