New Moonwalkers, Pittsburgh autonomy to take on consumer electronics show

Next week, Pittsburgh’s autonomy sector will join the throng of companies showing off virtual reality glasses, driverless cars and other tech inventions at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The coordinated effort is being led by the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance and the Pittsburgh Technology Council, who partnered to organize a panel discussion called “Building Approachable Autonomy in Pittsburgh.”

Representatives from Aurora, Thoro.ai, and Velo.ai will join the Tuesday conversation, moderated by Lenna Cominos, executive director of corporate partnerships at Carnegie Mellon University. PTC is also throwing a reception and plans to invite companies that might consider expanding to Pittsburgh….

Separately, at least one other CMU spinoff is planning to unveil a new product at the Las Vegas show. Earlier this month, Shift Robotics announced the newest version of its AI-assisted rolling shoes, called Moonwalkers, which help people walk up to three times faster.
