Today, more than half the world’s population, live in cities. They are at the epicenter of economic, cultural and social activities. But as urban density increases, it brings a degradation of the quality of life. Because of urban sprawl and traffic congestion, commuting has become a time sink and a major factor of air pollution. In addition, global urban population is expecting to grow at a sustained pace: 70% of us will live in an urban environment by 2050.
That is why the search is on for better, more sustainable transportation technologies and models to improve urban mobility such as electric cars, e-scooters, autonomous shuttle..
There is another “three-dimensional” mode of travel somewhere between commercial airplanes and remotely controlled drones called eVTOLs (electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft). They are a thriving area of experimentation for investors and they all seek to succeed in giving birth to today’s science fiction scenario: making the air a reliable and affordable daily mode of transportation.
This whitepaper focuses on the exciting projects underway and introduces ‘Viable’, our eVTOL concept designed by frog – part of the Altran Group.

How technologies will change the future of transport
The transport industry as we know it, is on the verge of a radical transformation thanks to major disruptive technological innovations built on IOT/Industry 4.0, Additive Layer Manufacturing, data analytics and artificial intelligence and electric-mobility. From self-driving cars, to autonomous flying drones, to 30-minute rides from LA to San Francisco on a Hyperloop!
