EmbraerX, Atech and Harris Corporation are developing Urban Air Traffic Management (UATM) concept to control electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOL) in an urban setting.
“Urban Air Traffic Management (UATM) concept ensures equitable and safe access to urban airspace for a broad spectrum of aircraft, including conventional helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and eVTOLs," said Antonio Campello, President & CEO of EmbraerX.
