    Digital event (via Zoom)

The use of drones can bring many opportunities for the improvement of the mobility sector. Possible applications range is very wide. Drones can be used for transport of passengers and goods, in rescue missions, for efficient mapping and planning purposes, for monitoring and maintenance of infrastructures, and several other applications to make mobility safer, more sustainable and smarter. Yet despite their many advantages, some challenges remain in order to fully integrate drones in the transportation system and everyday life. These challenges are in part of technological and infrastructural nature, and in part attributed to regulatory and societal acceptance aspects.

In order to discuss the potentials of drone usage and how to deal with current challenges and overcome the barriers for their deployment, this workshop introduces four inspiring R&I projects displaying different applications and approaches. The applications showed vary from providing a framework for safe drones to supporting urban planning tools and maintenance. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss challenges and successful examples of demonstrations from their perspectives and experiences.

You are very welcome to share your knowledge and ideas during the event.

We look forward to your participation!

About the online mFUND-Workshop series “Data Innovations for Smart Mobility in Europe”

Data has become an important driver in all areas of our modern society and its importance is increasing every day. Data is the basis for most digital innovations. It offers enormous potential for new business models and products.

In the transport sector, digital technologies and data are used on a large scale to increase efficiency, reliability and safety of services and infrastructure and economy. At the same time, databased solutions contribute to reducing the use of resources and tackle climate change. Citizens can greatly benefit from data-based solutions, which can enable seamless multimodal traffic, increase safety and improve the mobility experience in all types of environments.

With the virtual conference “Open Data for Smart Mobility in Europe”, held under the auspices of the German EU Council Presidency on 17 November 2020, the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport has initiated a European dialogue on examples for data innovations in the mobility field across Europe.
To continue this knowledge exchange and to facilitate new partnerships between European projects and actors, the BMDV mFUND programme has established a new online workshops series on Data Innovations for Smart Mobility. Several events on different transportation topics took place since the summer of 2021 and the series will continue throughout 2022.
