The delivery drone: autonomous transport in urban airspace

Transportation on the last mile is one of the trend topics of future mobility, especially in urban areas. In the past, the possible applications of unmanned aerial systems were often severely restricted due to a lack of legal certainty in the licensing process. However, this may change significantly in the future as a result of the EU directive on the standardised integration of drones into open airspace, which has already been passed. In the context of the contribution, Marvin Bihl, managing director of Emqopter GmbH, will report on practical experiences from the development of the delivery UAV as well as from first pilot projects and furthermore give an outlook on the effects of the new guidelines.
