What is this thing called “autonomy” and what does it mean to the appraisal process? This is a wide-ranging talk that will introduce concepts and degrees of autonomous equipment, market motivations for adoption, and changes in risk & depreciation considerations. The “Autonomy Ecosystem” will be described, along with indicators that can be used to help assess whether the client will be successful in implementing and using the equipment and to what extent it’s value might be conserved as collateral. Attendees should gain an understanding of the unique challenges and benefits of implementing autonomy and leave with a better understanding of the questions to ask and things to look for to make an informed collateralization when this type of equipment is encountered.
