Air Taxis, Flying Cars & Manned Drones – Rethink AutoMobility

The global market for commercial drones is growing rapidly. Drones are becoming an essential part of transporting goods and people. Logistics companies worldwide have been testing drone based solutions for the last mile and for destinations which are difficult to reach with trucks. These days more and more corporates and start-ups compete for the urban airspace with manned drones and flying cars.

Artificial intelligence is evermore taking over for assistance and automation functions. Many experts anticipate fully automated mobility first in the airspace and then on the road. Last but not least, the progressive automation of drones to make them safer and more efficient and to increase acceptance for drones. The technological and regulatory parallels with the automation of driving are clear.

In 2016, the DRONEMASTERS Logistics Conference focused on the potential of unmanned transport systems. 2017 the DRONEMASTERS Mobility Conference illuminated for the first time the current state of the developments of manned systems in the lower airspace.

The talks presented which systems are already in use today and what their next development steps will look like. From the point of view of leading experts it was explained how the lower airspace could be managed with numerous unmanned and manned systems in the near future. Finally, it was discussed which traffic concepts, such as safety and electromobility, could shape urban airspace.

 

Program

Rethinking Auto Mobility



Air taxis, flying cars or manned drones. Today, there is no definite term for the diverse forms of automobile aircrafts. Based on existing models and present concepts, we discuss current approaches and visions for automated mobility in the lower airspace.

Urban Air Traffic Control

 

Automation on the ground and in the air enables innovative, urban mobility concepts, which are characterized by higher efficiency and a lower ecological footprint. But who owns the airspace and how can we use and manage urban airspace?

Dawn of a Revolution

 

Individualization of air transport or extension of intermodal sharing concepts into airspace? What role can air taxis play for individual mobility, public transport in cities and in the countryside? Which innovative solutions will pave the way for aerial e-mobility and safety?
