About the Panel

Title: Opportunities and challenges of UAM in cities: Public acceptance, test cases, and governance
Description: The panel will discuss the opportunities and challenges of implementing Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in cities. The five participating projects have experience with test/use cases stemming from project-specific research on UAM. When defining the role of cities, our projects consider that UAM test and use cases must become a mandatory part of the implementation process. This will enable cities to identify potential safety issues, cost-effectiveness and sustainability aspects based on practical experience and ensure legal compliance. Most importantly, test and use cases will help to find solutions for society through dialogue to better understand and meet citizens' and business needs. Thus, test and use cases are essential to creating future-proof solutions that foster trust and acceptance by the wider public.
How do you see the role of cities for UAM?
