Welcome to the First Delft International

Online Conference on Urban Air Mobility


Urban Air Mobility is rapidly growing, as the problems related to massive urbanization become more urgent. Surface transport congestion leads indeed to unreliable related services for transportation, emergency and monitoring.


The use of urban air-space is regarded as an attractive solution for a number of purposes, including emergency transport, taxi service, patrolling, and air-delivery.


Technologies including distributed electric propulsion, new batteries, and software for virtual prototyping, allows to several established aerospace OEMs and startups to develop several concepts of electric Vertical and Take-Off/Landing (eVTOL) vehicles for urban operations.


The Online Framework during Covid-19 times

The mission of DICUAM is to gather experts from several domains in an ONLINE EVENT to discuss the scientific and technological challenges for eVTOL vehicles, including safety, traffic management, urban operations, regulations, and societal acceptance issues.

During these difficult times, we have chosen to shift the conference to an online event, in order to give the possibility to everyone to safely and comfortably participate to the event!

Looking forward to your contribution!!!
