The pressure on the mobility infrastructure increase in urban environments
This situation causes an increase of pollution levels, greater loss of time, and money for worldwide citizens.
The deployment of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) services could revolutionize the way people move and packages are transported within and around cities by shortening commute times, reducing the amount of CO2, by passing ground congestion, enabling point-to-point flights across cities, and reducing traffic accidents. To achieve this paradigm shift is needed to develop systems that allow the safe operation of this type of transport and improve public acceptance.
The digital era of aviation and new technologies of autonomous air vehicles will change our skies, allowing the development of aerial mobility solutions for the ordinary citizen.
The airports of tomorrow will be all around us: in our homes and workplaces, on the roofs of buildings, above delivery vans and fire trucks, etc. To achieve this paradigm shift in intelligent transport there are still many technological challenges.
That allows non-pilot flights and therefore be able to scale the
solution exponentially, and also increase the level of safety of this
type of operation that must operate at reduced distances from obstacles.
In addition, with the development of UAM, a large number of air vehicles are expected in future cities. This creates another major challenge related to airspace integration. For this reason, it is essential to develop an air traffic control system much more digital and automated than what today exists.
