Module 1: What is UAM/IAS?
Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and Innovative Aerial Services (IAS) technologies have been advancing rapidly over the past decade, to the extent that they are now being considered for urban, suburban, and rural applications in populated areas. While the potential of drone applications is high, there is still no implementation framework to be considered for the sustainable implementation of drone services in cities and regions. This module introduces the main concepts and topics of this emerging sector, giving an overview of the available technologies, potential applications, existing regulations and planning principles, acting as an introduction to the next Modules.


Module 2:Sustainable Operations in Cities and Regions
The successful implementation of IAS needs to start with a successful planning. Current experience from city projects in mobility provides insights that can be used for the IAS applications. In this module concepts of urban planning are followed by the sustainable urban mobility planning framework adjusted to IAS and other fundamental requirements related to citizens (social acceptance) and infrastructure requirements (physical and digital).



Module 3: Safety
Safety is the foundation upon which the future of urban transportation will be built. In this session, we will learn to prioritize, understand, and implement safety in the world of Urban Air Mobility.




Module 4: Security
In this module, we delve into the multifaceted realm of drone technology. As drones burgeon within the Internet of Things (IoT) landscape, they usher in both revolutionary opportunities and security challenges.
In Module 4 of Security in UAM, Lesson 1 delves into the security challenges presented by drones, notably within the IoT networks. Lesson 2 navigates the ever-evolving drone regulations, giving prominence to Europe’s pioneering efforts. Lesson 3 investigates the potential risks stemming from misuse, highlighting methods for their mitigation, while Lesson 4 underscores the critical role of risk mitigation within the broader aviation sector.
