SDI looks forward to contributing to and learning from the discussions at XPONENTIAL 2024, ensuring its academic programs remain at the forefront of industry developments.

Tempe, AZ [04/20/2024] – Sonoran Desert Institute (SDI) will be joining more than 7,500 of the world’s top experts in autonomous technology at this year’s XPONENTIAL 2024. XPONENTIAL™ brings together the technology, ideas, and people who are making autonomy a reality. It attracts thousands of business leaders, engineers, and end users from 20+ markets and domains. It’s also the home of the world’s largest showcase of uncrewed technologies — and one that SDI is excited to be a part of.

James McDanolds, Program Chair of the School of Unmanned Technology at SDI, shared his enthusiasm: “XPONENTIAL excites us each year with its technological advancements and valuable networking. It’s an opportunity to gain insights into future trends crucial for our curriculum development. At SDI, we’re dedicated to preparing our students for the challenges and opportunities of the evolving autonomous industry.”

SDI’s table will be set up at booth #5545 across from Innovation Theater from April 23rd through the 25th. The event is open to both AUSVI members and non-members alike, and members of the military and first responders who register in person while wearing their uniforms will be granted a free XPO Hall pass. More registration information can be found here.


XPONENTIAL is co-hosted by The Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA). As the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of uncrewed systems and robotics and one of the world’s largest organizers of international trade shows, their teams are committed to ensuring that new autonomous technologies are implemented in safe and equitable ways — so that autonomy works for everyone.
