Delivering an integrated airspace for the future
Flying cars, autonomous delivery, infrastructure that can diagnose and maintain itself using drones - these are tropes of a long-promised sci-fi future. So, what gives? - Is my autonomous taxi finally on its way?

Where does this leave us? Is there room for both excitement and healthy skepticism?
In this presentation, Collins Aerospace's Nick Liberko explores a vision of a highly automated global airspace ecosystem, serving a greater diversity of use cases and operating at a scale unlike anything before - all while maintaining safety and reliability. But also, some of the biggest challenges we must face getting there.
