“Joby Aviation & The Future of Urban Mobility”

Speakers:  Madelyn “Mattie” Baron & Daniel R Santillan

Equipment Design & Software Verification Engineers

 

Over the past decade, the population of urban areas in the US grew by 9 percent, with 86 percent now living in metropolitan regions --- two trends likely to continue.  Concomitant burdens of congestion, combined with carbon emissions in transportation, have created a dire problem in urgent need of solution.  Enter:  eVTOL --- electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft with zero emissions and greatly reduced noise levels that use electric power to take off, land, and hover vertically.  This past August, Santa Cruz, CA-based Joby Aviation became the first US-based eVTOL company to become publicly traded.  Its goal is to make aerial ride-sharing and emissions-free flight, new parts of our everyday lives.  Following a general overview of eVTOL technology and how it differs from other aircraft, our speakers will detail:  specifics of Joby’s approach and operations; how to use eVTOL to get where you want to go; and how it’s likely to transform our cities and improve our lives.
