"The Role of Simulation in the Development of Future Air Mobility"

Society is obsessed with the dream of personal aircraft traversing cityscapes. New technologies are piquing interest in vehicles that might be called “flying cars”--and the key behind all these technologies is simulation.

The dream of flying cars goes back as far as the invention of flight itself. Two years before the Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk, Gustave Whitehead was reported to have said that within a year, people will be purchasing airships as easily as they are buying automobiles.

It doesn’t take an aerospace engineer to tell you that Whitehead’s prediction has yet to be realized. However, engineers from all walks of life are starting to think that the current buzz around urban air mobility has some lift – all thanks to technological and societal trends as well as advancements in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), drones, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, electric propulsion and AI.

The new technologies that are supporting renewed hope in future air mobility all have something in common: simulation. With simulation, engineers can optimize aircraft design and electrical propulsion. It can also be used to train AI and address societal trends like sustainability.
