We convened Wednesday, September 2, for an important and forward-looking episode of CoMotion LIVE: The Sky’s The Limit: Regulating the UAM Revolution.
We’ll dive into the wild world of eVTOLs and drones – the passenger and freight ferrying small aircraft of the future. They’ll be plying the skies of a city near you sooner than you may think.
Urban Air Mobility – UAM – has the potential to rapidly reshape urban mobility and alter commute patterns, but it begs important questions. Who should control urban airspace in the future, and how? Should eVTOLs be limited to fixed routes, or should they be free to roam as they please? How can this new technology better serve traditionally under-developed communities?
John Rossant, Founder & CEO of CoMotion, leads a high-level conversation with a roster of the industry’s top thinkers: Eric Allison, Head of Aviation Programs at Uber, leading the Elevate initiative to re-imagine urban transportation through the air; Dan Dalton, who as Vice President of Global Partnerships at Wisk leads regulatory initiatives at the pioneering all-electric, self-flying air taxi manufacturer that’s backed by Boeing and Kitty Hawk; and Florian Lennert, Head of Mobility at NEOM, Saudi Arabia’s future city that has eVTOLs at the heart of its transportation mix.
Co-presented by Wisk.
