As populations in megacities continue to grow, the existing traffic situation will become increasingly demanding. Personal airborne transportation systems (PATS) and autonomous aerial vehicles capable of transporting people will quickly transition from being executive and VIP systems to being transport solutions potentially as popular as the car has been.
Projects and trials are already taking place around the world, with major aviation manufacturers, automotive manufacturers, city planners and technology companies all showing a keen interest.
In this dedicated conference stream, over 30 speakers will present and discuss radical new urban mobility concepts and solutions that will take transportation in cities to the third_dimension. They will also examine how these personal airborne transportation systems will fit into the urban landscape, who will be the main players and pioneers, and what effect this highly disruptive new mode of urban transport will eventually have on cities of the future.
