On 19 October 2018, the European Commission launched the European Network of U-space Demonstrators to support U-space projects and solutions. The network is a forum to share U-space lessons learned to accelerate transition from demonstrations to implementation, whilst ensuring drone operations are safe, secure and green. More info on our dedicated pages.
Current restrictions imposed across Europe due to COVID-19 have resulted in an enhanced need to deliver medical equipment quickly between hospitals, monitor movement of people in cities under restrictions, and limit tasks that require face-to-face interaction by having them performed by drones. This has further emphasised the need for U-space to enable management of unmanned traffic in very low level airspace in a safe and efficient manner.
To this end, we organised a series of webinars, where members of the European Network of U-space Demonstrators from across Europe shared their U-space know-how and experience.
In the third and final webinar of this series, we discussed:
- Lessons learned from Delivery of medical supplies across hospitals using drones in Italy;
- Role of European Investment Bank to promote European Commission’s UAM strategy.
Each webinar in our series consisted of presentations from U-space leaders, followed by a panel discussion, the panellists answered questions from the audience.
