eVertiSKY and Volatus report progress on Chicago’s first UAM vertiport

eVertiSKY and Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions (VI&E Solutions) report they are progressing their efforts as part of the Chicago UAM Living Labs initiative, which began January 2024, establishing Chicago’s first UAM vertiport. In the third quarter of 2024, the project will transition into the next stage with Federal, State, and Local engagement. “This strategic partnership also incorporates VI&E Solutions’ multimodal EV charging solutions into eVertiSKY’s CityAPI Dashboard which provides a transparent, real-time view of Vertiport ground assets, including the specifications of Volatus EV units, and accessible to operators via the NASA UTM, ensuring seamless coordination and management of both air and ground operations,” said the companies in a press release.

“The UAM Living Labs plays a critical role by providing a real-world testing ground for UAM technologies, collaboration, and operational strategies. Through extensive data collection and stakeholder engagement, each UAM Living Labs identifies optimal vertiport locations, efficient operational protocols, and the economic and environmental impacts of UAM integration.

The collaborative efforts include setting up aircraft charging stations at the vertiport for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) operations, ensuring these vehicles have dedicated and reliable energy sources. VI&E Solutions is also expanding its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure throughout the surrounding UAM economic zone, facilitating the integration of ground-based electric vehicles into the urban transport ecosystem.”
