The aviation industry, a major player in global CO2 emissions at approximately 2.4 percent, has long grappled with the challenge of going electric. It’s an essential move, considering the escalating need to address climate change. Euronews highlights this global push towards electrification as both a challenge and an opportunity.

Technological advances in air taxis and flying vehicles are needed to transform public transport

  • Reading Time:4Minutes

Imagine the scene: you look up from the crowded pavement of your metropolitan home and instead of seeing the occasional plane or helicopter, you see a swift, whispering sound of vehicles darting back and forth across the sky. This is not a scene from a science fiction film, but a vision of a future where air taxis and flying vehicles play an important role in public transport. But what will it take for them to become widespread ?

Embracing the Future: Seoul’s Leap into Urban Air Mobility

In an audacious move to revolutionize its transport system, Seoul – the bustling South Korean capital, is gearing up to test the viability of urban air mobility (UAM) vehicles, effectively bringing the concept of flying cars closer to reality. This test flight, slated for next year, is a stepping stone in the city’s broader ambition to roll out such air transport services by 2025, according to official city statements.

How can machine learning help eVTOLs and air taxis ?

  • Reading Time:3Minutes

The rapid development of technology in recent years has ushered in a new age of transportation, transcending the conventional roads and highways to take to the skies. Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft and flying taxis, once considered the stuff of science fiction, are now poised to become an integral part of our daily lives. But it is the implementation of machine learning that will truly revolutionize these aerial vehicles and redefine urban mobility. As the foremost expert on the subject, I aim to explore the pivotal role machine learning will play in the development, optimization, and operation of eVTOLs and flying taxis.
