FF2020 Training
Integrating a New Spatial Ecosystem:
Steps Towards UAM

News

THE SECOND MODULE OF THE FF2020 TRAINING PROGRAMME IS OUT NOW!

The second module of our free online training programme, "Integrating a New Spatial Ecosystem: Steps Towards Urban Air Mobility", is available now. "Module 2: Machine Learning for Law" focuses on how Flying Forward 2020 tries to ease the implementation of the legal framework using machine learning. It trains its audience on how to use machine learning to make laws ‘machine readable’.

Training Scope

Flying Forward 2020 (FF2020) has produced training material to further the use of our project’s research and innovation activities. Our consortium partner, EuroUSC Italia, has developed a set of relevant training modules by interviewing project partners and talking to potential users of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) about the results of the FF2020 project research and innovation activities.

FF2020 aims to contribute to the scalability of UAM in a European setting. At this moment, it is not yet possible to easily set up, monitor, and arrange manned and unmanned flights above built and populated areas, as well as to adopt business models that integrate Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operations in the cities. Therefore, cities, government organisations and operators cannot yet make a financial business case.

The training activities are developed considering the objectives and key results of the FF2020 project:

  • Objective 1: Ease the integration of UAM into the legal and regulatory framework.
    Key Result 1 (KR1): A regulatory framework for UAM based on a solid ground of regulations in power to be presented as input for future European legislation, directives and standards.

  • Objective 2: Enable the interoperability of the geospatial digital UAM infrastructure across cities.
    Key Result 2 (KR2): A universal geospatial digital infrastructure to support the open marketplace principles in which governments and businesses can work together on UAM solutions for EU cities.

  • Objective 3: Ensure control with the provision of a governance model, interoperability frameworks and an IDoT (Identity of Things) scheme.
    Key Result 3 (KR3): An operational governance framework to facilitate and ensure that legislation and technical frameworks are working properly to secure the footprint, which helps cities to monitor and steer UAS safely.

  • Objective 4: Facilitate the implementation of UAM services in cities and ecosystems based on European principles.
    Key Result 4 (KR4): A technology-agnostic service layer to help cities and ecosystems implement frameworks quickly and effectively and ensure interoperability.

  • Objective 5: Identify strategies and foster replicability and scalability.
    Key Result 5 (KR5): A practical methodology for implementation based on the principle of learning by doing.

  • Objective 6: Provide open access to project results to promote knowledge transfer within the Urban Air Mobility ecosystem.
    Key Result 6 (KR6): A sustainable plan for the sustainability and awareness of the project results.
