On the fast track to viable and safe on-demand air services.

Today, more than half the world’s population, live in cities.  They are at the epicenter of economic, cultural and social activities. But as urban density increases, it brings a degradation of the quality of life. Because of urban sprawl and traffic congestion, commuting has become a time sink and a major factor of air pollution. In addition, global urban population is expecting to grow at a sustained pace: 70% of us will live in an urban environment by 2050.

That is why the search is on for better, more sustainable transportation technologies and models to improve urban mobility such as electric cars, e-scooters, autonomous shuttle..

There is another “three-dimensional” mode of travel somewhere between commercial airplanes and remotely controlled drones called eVTOLs (electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft). They are a thriving area of experimentation for investors and they all set to succeed in giving birth to today’s science fiction scenario: making the air a reliable and affordable daily mode of transportation.

This whitepaper focuses on the exciting projects underway and introduces ‘Viable’, our eVTOL concept designed by frog – part of Capgemini Invent.
