Skills and Experise Offered: LC-MG-1-12-2020:
Using our extensive experience in multi-modal transportation design including railroad and highway corridors for vehicular, freight and passenger traffic, environmental assessment and master plans, we would like to provide our contribution for the following subjects related to the topic:
- Evaluation and assessment of transport network performance for freight and passenger transport modes,
- Determination of design, engineering and traffic flow standards for air-mobility corridors for delivery and passenger drones in urban, peri-urban and rural airspace.
- Engineering, architectural and urban planning and environmental standards for adaptation of on-ground facilities to air mobility corridors for pick-up and drop-off.
Using our extensive experience in multi-modal transportation design for vehicular, freight and passenger traffic, environmental assessment and master plans, we would like to provide our contribution for determination of design, engineering and traffic flow standards for creation of air-mobility corridors over urban airspace for delivery and passenger drones.
In addition, we would also provide contribution for engineering and architectural standards for adaptation of on-ground facilities to air mobility corridors for pick-up and drop-off and environmental standards for noise and emission levels.
