The Washington Autonomous Vehicle-Cluster (WAV-C) was established to accelerate innovation across the regional landscape for autonomous and unmanned vehicles, particularly in the maritime sector. WAV-C seeks to aggregate Washington’s ecosystems to advance marine autonomous systems and generate jobs statewide. In partnership, the NW Tech Bridge and WAV-C aim to make the Pacific Northwest the premier destination for all autonomous technologies and a standard for international excellence in autonomous technologies.
As WAV-C engages with the ecosystem, the NW Tech Bridge can work directly with local startup companies to assist in the transition and commercialization of innovative technologies.
The NW Tech Bridge can work with the WAV-C as advisor and advocate through collaborative events that will act as driving forces for the advancement of autonomous vehicle technologies on the Olympic Peninsula.
