MARCH 24 - FREE WEBINAR. Scaling Up from Drones to Air Taxis
For many local authorities, the immediate urban air mobility (UAM) challenge is to develop a policy which will allow for municipalities, the national aviation safety regulator and operators to work together to launch safe drone flights above people. But this is just the first stage.
By 2030 a UAM eco-system will comprise a complex network of aerial routes, ground infrastructure and traffic management systems, potentially allowing for hundreds of daily autonomous drone transport missions carrying people and goods around the city, while other drones will fly monitoring and surveillance missions. To ensure readiness to seamlessly deploy the new technologies in beneficial ways for the community, local authorities need to take an immediate and strategic approach towards public engagement and the infrastructure planning process.
This seminar will address:
- What could a city UAM eco-system look like in 2030?
- What are the immediate strategic priorities for local authorities in preparing for the future?
- How should local authorities start their strategic UAM planning, with scalability in mind?
- When will cities need unmanned aerial systems (UAS) traffic management systems and who should run these?
- How should UAM be introduced within a long term smart-city planning process?
