Drones are already being used today to inspect technical installations and infrastructures. What other possibilities will there be in the future to collect and pass on data with the help of drones?
Parcel drones or flying taxis seem within reach. But where do we stand in the development of passenger and freight transport by drone? And how will the smart city of the future look like with Urban Air Mobility?

Panel “Counter UAS”
The threat posed by drones continues to increase as their spread among hobbyists and malicious actors continues. The recent incidents of non-cooperative drones at London’s Gatwick and Heathrow airports have impressively demonstrated this. So how can we protect security, privacy and data protection from unauthorised drones? And how can drones be protected from hackers?
Panel “Integration of Drones in the Airspace”
In the air, drones can become a danger to other drones and manned aviation. But how can drones safely coexist with manned aviation? And what can drones learn from manned aviation?
