Shaping the future of mobility

Drones – a natural layer in the future transport system

What impact will the new U-space regulations, Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning and UAMs have on Swedish authorities and entities? This topic was discussed at an event earlier this year, part of the test and demo activities in Fordonsdalen.

A broad range of stakeholders from the City of Stockholm, Region Stockholm, Luftfartsverket, Ericsson and several Stockholm based small and middle sized enterprises (SME) gathered to discuss and demonstrate the role drones will have in our future cities.

 

The purpose of the meeting was to raise awareness on how to drive a sustainable and responsible transition of urban mobility into space, or the third dimension.

A vital part of the event was the discussion on how municipalities should implement the new upcoming U-space regulations, and the role of innovative SME’s in this process, showcasing safe use cases, eg data collection and inspection of first and last mile deliveries. In order to to shape the future of mibility we must have a common understanding from all parties, authorities, municipalities, researchers and startups. 

Three small-sized innovative companies had the opportunity to present their solutions during the meeting;

Skyqraft – visual data analytics provider helping businesses in the linear infrastructure sector to make better decisions about grids, 

Skysense, experts in the area of tracking aircraft, the growing field of aircraft safety and protection against drone; 

Aerit – a sustainable drone delivery service based in Stockholm.

 

 

”Unmanned aerial vehicles, or more commonly, drones, are already in use in our society for different purposes such as data collection and infrastructure inspections. The possibilities of using drones in the urban environment are endless. To establish a good balance of what use cases the citizens need and the the ones that will have the most impact in terms of environmental and social sustainability, the collaboration between the public and private sector is key. says Sara Nozkova, Mobility Lead at Kista Science City and project manager for the Test & Demo activities within Fordonsdalen.

Nu händer mycket kring drönare, och vi på Kista Science City, tillsammans med Stockholms stad och Luftfartsverket kommer från och med 2023 delta i ett treårigt europeiskt projekt som syftar till att förbereda städer till storskalig drönartrafik. En del av projektet handlar om att ta reda på vad Stockholmare tycker kring drönare – vilka use cases vill ni se, i vilka områden m.m.
