The overarching scientific objective of the i-LUM project is the development of methodological, systemic and knowledge-based foundations for the elaboration and evaluation of the feasibility of innovative concepts and technologies for urban aerial mobility for the Hamburg metropolitan region in future scenarios (2040/2050).
Through an integrating system wide approach, cross-linked scientific excellence shall be achieved within the network. Questions of social acceptance will be investigated by means of social research, legal aspects of feasibility will be scrutinized and the scalability of the concepts will be examined.
Based on the project results, an application for a DFG-Graduiertenkolleg for UAM is to be submitted and a Hamburg UAM Cluster of Excellence established. MOM is working on linking simulation tools in order to integrate material aspects into DLR's overall system modelling environment - RCE.
