NDSU Research Offers Roadmap for Autonomous Aircraft Use That Improves Safety and Profitability

Posted: Dec 5, 2023

Research at North Dakota State University’s Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute offers a roadmap for companies and agencies looking to profitably implement the use of autonomous aircraft. This roadmap for advanced air mobility (AAM) adoption pinpoints key economic and regulatory factors that could accelerate or impede its deployment. By identifying high-demand routes and commodity categories, the research facilitates targeted investments and policymaking. The focus on transporting dangerous goods and pharmaceuticals showcases AAM’s potential for enhancing safety and healthcare outcomes. These insights will significantly inform governmental and business decisions, shaping a more sustainable, efficient, and responsive transportation ecosystem.
