Advanced Technologies Center Paris
Building Uber’s Future in France
Uber Air will add a third dimension to the Uber platform using flying vehicles: Aerial ridesharing will use a network of all-electric, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft powered by distributed electric propulsion. Uber Elevate’s Advanced Technologies Center in Paris (ATCP) supports this vision by building artificial intelligence along with optimization and airspace management systems to support Uber Air at scale.
ATCP’s primary goal involves maintaining strong relationships with academic research institutes in Europe while engaging in our own research on several topics relevant for Uber Elevate. The initial focus for ATCP is digital sciences, such as artificial intelligence for decision-making and increased automation, optimization, and the safety of software systems. Safety applies to the aircraft itself, but also to the broader system of urban aviation.
