RAeS Urban Air Mobility Conference 2020
22nd October, 2020 @ 8:00 am – 23rd October, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
The 2020’s heralds a new and exciting era in aviation with the adoption of autonomous system technologies, AI, digital systems, new propulsion systems, new materials, and new business operating models. None more so, than in the potential of Urban Air Mobility.
These innovations bring with them several of challenges, notably as new players in this sector are typically start-ups with little aviation background but bring with them new skills from other sectors.
This years’ RAeS Urban Air Mobility conference explores the challenges and opportunities that Urban Air Mobility brings, in the context of the fast-evolving ecosystem of multi-modal transport, intelligent mobility and the ‘door to door’ journeys of people and freight.
Given the Society’s body of knowledge, our role now includes the need to answer the hard questions of the future; why, when, how much, is it safe?
In particular, the conference addresses: UAM Market and Demand; Technologies; Infrastructure – physical and digital; Transport System Integration; Operations; Business Cases and Operating models; Regulation; and Safety, Certification, Security & Testing.
