Urban Air Mobility – Smart Mobility in Smart Cities: Walk. Ride. Drive. Fly.
The region of Northern Hesse joins the European initiative “Urban Air Mobility” to develop innovative airspace mobility solutions
The region of Northern Hesse joins the European initiative “Urban Air Mobility” under the leadership of the “European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities” (EIP SCC) and Airbus Helicopters, supported by the European Commission, bringing urban mobility into the third dimension in Europe.
With the membership in this initiative, Northern Hesse becomes partner of world leading regions like Hamburg, Ghent, Geneva and Brussels, aiming to develop innovative new mobility solutions as well as technologies and to reinforce the regional and cross-regional innovation and mobility ecosystems.
A realistic scenario for the region of Northern Hesse can be the use of autonomous drones for the feeder traffic to the airports Kassel Calden and Frankfurt am Main to improve the possibilities of mobility in Northern Hesse, especially in rural areas.
