Uber Air and the aerial mobility revolution
The future will be here sooner than you think. Our cities are about to be hit by a transport revolution – think driverless cars, delivery drones, micro mobility on electric scooters and Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft.
Uber Air has recently announced Melbourne as the first international test city for flying taxis. The technology for this revolution already exists today and Clem Newton-Brown’s Skyportz business is at the frontline pushing the boundaries for city planning and regulatory changes to develop the network of landing infrastructure that will be required for urban aerial mobility and services such as Uber Air.
As a former planning barrister, Deputy Lord Mayor of Melbourne and Member of Parliament, Clem has a unique insight into how this transport revolution can be realised.
Clem’s presentation is not about predicting the future – it’s about what is being done to create the urban environment to facilitate the biggest change the world has seen since the invention of the motor vehicle.
