AURORA believes in creating solutions that not only extend and complement current mobility systems, but more importantly have a beneficial impact on people and society. By facilitating the integration of UAM in a safe, secure, quiet and green manner, AURORA proposes to pave the way towards smarter cities and pioneering services.
As such, we want to listen to both stakeholders and citizens on their opinions, needs and concerns regarding the development of UAM solutions. This set of activities aim at understanding and increasing the public acceptance of UAM, paving the way for technological developments that fit people’s needs.
Our fist public acceptance activity will be the virtual stakeholder workshop taking place on Tuesday, September 28th 2021, from 13:00 to 17:00 CEST. Our goal is to create a dialogue that not only explores the possibilities of urban air mobility, but one that also challenges it from a societal standpoint. For this, we invited experts in the field and key stakeholder representatives (user representatives, mobility experts, high-level UAM regulators, public authorities, research institutes, among others) that will create added value to our research.
Besides counting with an introduction to the project, this workshop will also count with interesting discussion sessions that will cover the following topics:
- Integration of UAM in the city: needs for integrating the aerial domain with surface mobility counterparts
- Environment: environmental protection requirements and potential environmental impact
- Aviation Safety: safety requirements in urban environments and near-future UAM system’s airworthiness, operations and integration requirements
- Societal Challenges: societal challenges for adopting UAM and strategies for citizen inclusiveness
