AMU-LED will allow UAM stakeholders to specify various use cases applicable to logistics and urban transport of passengers, to integrate UAM environment, to demonstrate the UAS ground and airborne platforms and finally, to assess safety, security, sustainability and public acceptance.
AMU-LED will test real UAM operations in a U-space eco-system for coordinated flights of several types of UAVs in different scenarios, use cases and applications (e.g. air taxis, emergency services, delivery of goods, surveys, etc.) for surveillance, logistics and mobility using air vehicles. At the end of the project, it will be demonstrated that any city or urban region (e.g. sparsely populated areas) may have the capability to offer UAM services and infrastructures taking into account its specificities, but in a standardized and safe form. Finally, this project will contribute significantly to define the needs and features of the Urban Air Vehicle (UAV) on-board equipment. A set of various experimentations will be performed in three counties in Europe (the UK, Spain and the Netherlands), towards the test of the drone platform itself but also the U-space relevant services to be deployed. The UAM eco-system needs to be holistically considered as a system of systems.

Safe interaction of UAM with other Airspace Users: AMU-LED will define and test U-space services and technologies to provide means to coordinate and integrate safely UAM operations with other Air Space Users, including manned aviation and ATC coordination. (Please note that the objective is different from full integration with ATM, and SWIM information exchanges activities foreseen in SESAR Pj34)
Safe UAM flight: Additionally, AMU-LED Project will explore the requirements of UAM platforms to fly and navigate safely even in complex urban environments, considering the impact of buildings both in surrounding air streams and multipath effects on electromagnetic signals in space providing guidance (e.g. GNSS) and communications (e.g. 4G/5G) to the UAM platforms
The 1st AMU-LED workshop is now available online!

What is all about the role of cities and regions in the preparation and deployment of UAM services?
A number of new terms have been coined to describe the new mobility possibilities (for passengers or freight) arisen from the electrification of air vehicles in metropolitan areas. For example, to name a few: UAM (urban air mobility), AAM (Advanced Air Mobility), RAM (Regional Air Mobility) and IAM (Innovative Air Mobility) are commonly used terms.

Business cases for air taxis in the skies and over the cities of Europe
When we imagine a futuristic city, an image usually comes to mind of air taxis flying through the sky. A scenario perhaps inspired by science fiction films that have shown this interpretation of future mobility again and again. This transport concept is already part of the present and companies such as UMILES Next have already Read more about Business cases for air taxis in the skies and over the cities of Europe[…]

What does a city need to be UAM friendly?
Drones have burst into our society with lightning speed. Their multiple applications suit the needs of the 21st century offering new possibilities for business in civil and noncivil applications. Logistics, agriculture, medical purposes, wildlife conservation, pollution control, emergencies and even transport of passengers and goods, among others, are already available or expected to be a Read more about What does a city need to be UAM friendly?[…]
Safety of UAM
Urban Air Mobility (UAM) or Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) – defined as an air transportation system for passengers and cargo in and around urban environments, has increased its presence in the media with suggestions of the introduction of UAM within Europe in three to five years (CAP 2122). This is being enabled by the advancement Read more about Safety of UAM[…]
