Space & Mobility

Thursday 4 October 2018, 10:50 – 11:50

Location: Bremen Conference Center – DLR Hall


Present and future mobility systems and mobility concepts are not conceivable without (German) space know-how.

Many examples illustrate this: Autonomous driving – in its eventual mature state – is only possible if navigation data is reliably, highly precise and continuously available.

Satellite navigation ensures that transport solutions can be operated efficiently and safely.

Satellite technology helps to make transportation networks more efficient, saving billions of euros in costs and contributing to climate protection by avoiding traffic.

The panel will demonstrate the usefulness of space exploration for everyday applications, especially in the area of mobility.

It will introduce highly innovative urban air mobility solutions by Airbus Defence and Space as well as Volocopter GmbH and discuss the following questions:

  • How do space and mobility providers work together?
  • What do both sides expect from each other?
  • How will future mobility solutions look like?
