Air taxi – tomorrow’s means of transport

Panel discussion 26.11.2019, 2.15 p.m. - 3.45 p.m.

The air taxi opens up a new and previously unused dimension of urban public transport that has the potential to become one of tomorrow’s mobility trends. Innovative companies, such as Ehang, Lilium and Volocoptor, have already successfully tested air-taxi prototypes and they are certain this new form of transport has a bright future. Accordingly, experts will debate, inter alia, the following questions in a fascinating panel discussion: are air taxis the public transport of the future? How will they revolutionise the way we move around our conurbations? And what must happen so that air taxis can become reality here?

Rail meets Hyperloop

Panel discussion 27.11.2019, 1 p.m. - 2.30 p.m.

Does the Hyperloop and its technology represent a future-oriented alternative to road and air transport? Representatives of Hyperloop and railway companies will take an in-depth look at the issues involved. The experts believe in the potential offered by this futuristic means of transport thanks to its ability to transport people and goods rapidly and sustainably. Therefore, the panellists will discuss the biggest challenges in designing and building a European Hyperloop infrastructure and how it could be integrated into existing transport systems.

Cyborg – the machine-mankind age has begun

Panel discussion 28.11.2019, 12.45 p.m. - 2.15 p.m.

Everything in this panel discussion will revolve around the subject of artificial intelligence whereby the experts will firstly ask what exactly a cyborg is. Just looking for a definition reveals a wide range of opinions: are cyborgs people with technical aids that expand their abilities to such an extent that they stand out from their contemporaries? Or are they people that consist to a large extent of artificial elements and can, therefore, do things beyond the scope of humans? Be prepared for a fascinating discussion and learn the extent to which man-machines are already reality in this day and age.

Hypermotion Lab Talk

Increasing urbanisation demands new ideas for connectivity and transport. These will include various different ways of getting from A to B; and the traditional divisions between local public transport, logistics and privately used vehicles will become blurred. On 26 November 2019, the VISION mobility THINK TANK will be devoted to the subject of transportation alternatives in towns and cities and includes the shift from owners to users and new concepts ranging from micro-mobility to delivery bicycles.
