Grayson leads American Industrial Magic (AIM), an organization working to save soldiers lives by making U.S. Army supply trucks driverless to help save lives. AIM is funded by donations from individuals like you who want to speed up the development of this life-saving technology. The blog looks over Grayson's shoulder and into the world of unmanned robotic vehicles: "see some of the things that I see, and puzzle over the problems of making vehicles driverless. Welcome to my world!"
