The UAM Ingolstadt Initiative, as part of the European Commission’s smart cities and communities program, is a network of the city of Ingolstadt together with industry partners, scientific researchers, regulatory bodies and governmental institutions with the goal of promoting electric air mobility for inter-city and city-to-city connections in large and condensed urban areas and future mega-cities. It specifically addresses mobility challenges in fast growing urban environments and promises to provide new means of sustainable transportation for goods and people.

Rohde & Schwarz is part of the UAM Ingolstadt Network and focuses on testing and validating technologies designed to assure safety and security of this future way of transportation. Rohde & Schwarz offers specialized instruments for testing of sensors, on-board communication, flight navigation, electric propulsion and the overall system integration, including electromagnetic compliance (EMC).

Christian Leicher, CEO of Rohde & Schwarz, says: “As a company with a long history of pioneering technical expertise, we are happy to provide a gathering place where ideas are discussed and future projects are planned. Autonomous driving and mobility in the third dimension will allow for seamless transportation in the cities of the future, and those technologies need to perform flawlessly and reliably. Rohde & Schwarz excels at providing innovative test solutions to meet such challenges.”

Dr. Christian Lösel, Mayor of the City of Ingolstadt, says: “The development of tomorrow's technologies is a particular challenge. I am very pleased to see how our joint initiative has grown in the meantime, how many high-profile partners have come together, and what we have already been able to accomplish.”

All of this with a shared goal of accelerating this new aviation era.”

These meetings are essential for driving these innovations forward. Rohde & Schwarz was an excellent host for this network meeting, and we look forward to continuing this discussion.”
