Deakin University of Australia has released a white paper evaluating the possibility of electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft in the passenger and freight context.
The study focused on moving away from fossil fuel, and embracing alternative energy for flying in any nature.
It is the first and most comprehensive literature review and study of this nature, and analyses the regulatory challenges, operating potential and likely benefits of AAM and eVTOL.
The study is a collaboration between the Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation (IISRI) and the Centre for Supply Chain and Logistics.
The comprehensive literature review analyzes the regulatory challenges, operating potential and likely benefits of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) and and electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL)
The white paper identifies:
– potential market segments for eVTOL aircraft and the opportunities to manage those markets
– future infrastructure, airspace and land requirements; and
– directions for Australian research and development, including potential early trials.
From developing a long-term vision for technology and telecommunications in the rail industry to tele-working at home as the new normal, Deakin Mobility is working to support the development of capabilities related to new mobility, including systems thinking, multi-stakeholder engagement strategies, understanding new technologies and services, and exploring entrepreneurial ideas for new market entrants,” Professor Creighton said.
The white paper, ‘Advanced Aerial Mobility and eVTOL aircraft in Australia: Promise and Challenges’ can be downloaded from the IISRI website, where you can also join the discussion with Deakin Mobility.
