“UAM and the widespread use of passenger and cargo AAVs will transform how people and goods move around urban areas,”
Real estate developer Los Amigos Tulum announces its strategic partnership with EHang, the world’s leading company in autonomous air vehicle technology (AAV) platforms, to build an urban air mobility (UAM) project in Tulum
While the AAV conversation has mostly focused on urban spaces, there are broad non-urban applications for services currently being provided by helicopters, including in search and rescue, emergency medical services, offshore operations, oil and gas, firefighting, forestry, power-line repair and surveys, agriculture and pest control, media, aerial photography, and law enforcement.
EHang is the first UAM company to commercialize its passenger-grade AAVs, having already delivered 38 units to customers as of December 5, 2019, and is actively working to make UAM an everyday reality in cities worldwide.
As serious congestion and pollution have become headache of traditional ground traffic system, EHang AAV is born to bring 3D air traffic system to reality. EHang aims at making safe, autonomous and eco-friendly air mobility accessible to everyone by providing comprehensive solutions including hardware and software configuration, takeoff and landing platform establishment and other operational services.
To date, EHang has safely conducted over two thousand test flights both inside and outside of China to ensure that its AAVs operate safely and reliably. The company has three main business pillars: urban air mobility (including passenger transportation and logistics), smart city management, and aerial media.
EHang became a publicly listed company on December 12, 2019 when it listed on the Nasdaq Global Market under the ticker symbol “EH.”
