Suseong-gu, Suggesting Sky Free City which is combined technology with culture!!

With the name of Sky Free City, it has set a key assignment to lead Urban Air Mobility (UAM) which is core mobility industry in the future and to develop drone-tainment which is blended drone with entertainment
Leading the change in the future, UAM
Urban Air Mobility(UAM), in the other words, flying car is the transportation like an airplane which can solve too much traffic on the ground.
On September 2019 Hyundai Car Group had made UAM department and set their goals as commercialization of personal air mobility until 2028, in addition, composing UAM as 30% of whole business pie. Early of this year at Consumer Electronics Show CES) in the USA, they have announced about future mobility service model.
The government announced the K-UAM roadmap at the second innovation growth strategy meeting held in June. In the era of global competition, as human resources are concentrated, ground traffic congestion is expected to continue, and a solution is emerging as a three-dimensional means of urban air mobility (UAM) flying over the ground. With the goal of flying between 30 and 50 km of travel in the city area, urban air mobility is an innovative transportation service that can shorten to 20 minutes which take 1 hour by car. The flying car, thought to be a distant future story only seen in movies and cartoons, is quickly becoming a reality.
Suseong-mot members Test Flying-car Flight
In mid-November, Suseong-gu has plan to test-fly flying car near the suseong-mot.
The futuristic city plan of The Mercury Sphere includes the idea of driving future change through flying cars through the use of three-dimensional space beyond the existing horizontal structure.
Flying Car Test Flight by Members of Suseong pond
Suseong-gu has planning to test flying-car nearby Suseong-mot on mid-November.
There is an idea of leading change of future perceptionin plans about Suseong-gu future city to utilize multi-dimensional places in order to using flying car so that can be shift from the ordinary horizontal structure.
There are good points about flying car. Firstly, it is possible to takeoff and land vertically. Also,
It makes use of electricity so that do not emit anti-pollution gas, indeed, makes less noises.
Additionally, it can make new sky road going out of orbit from moving through roads, courses that already existed. Based on these, we can be free from traffic on the ground, at the same time, flying car can reach as fast not only as car but also as airplane so that there is no meaning about how far from each other.
The plan is to set the base that create more values got out of traffic not only related with men also goods.
Suseong-gu drives demonstration business that drone taxi does surveillance flight over the Suseong-mot with test-flight, and is willing to make eco-friendly business model operating regular service to helicopter landing point in the mountain in the future that can alternate cable-car.
Realization of Future City based on Sky Port
At this time of Daegu, there is big change on the center of region because of relocation of city hall, station area development of West-side of Daegu,Daegu-Gyeongbuk United New Airport Relocation, and set up new traffic network.
To overcome this crisis and make new steps, Suseong-gu is going to set up UAM. In a future city it will be a center of mobility that a sky port where is a station to takeoff and land from flying cars not an airport.
To do this, making a testbed of test flight opportunities and places about flying car is the start point. After studying UAM routes over the river, mountain, or road, convenience of transportation, connectivity, we will look for the best places for sky port, and expand flying car operation to utilize nearby metropolitan transportation network, and skyscrapers.
Moreover, sky port is not just terminal for the transportation. The sky port is the multiplex combined culture, leisure, medical, business, research, and development. Through the sky port, we are planning to make an active future city that has a new place where people can communicate sustainably overcoming the limit of time and places.
