EHang Launches New 5G Intelligent Air Mobility Experience Center

December 29, 2021, saw EHang announcing that it has partnered with Guangzhou Development District Communications Investment Group (GDDCI) to co-launch a 5G Intelligent Air Mobility Experience Center at the Innovation Park in Huangpu District, Guangzhou. The center is under EHangj’s 100 Air Mobility Routes Initiative.

The new experience center is specifically designed to be an operation spot for EHang AAVs; as such it covers an area of 2,000 square meters and is equipped with a rooftop ventiport. It also features a hangar for power charging and maintenance.  Powered by the 5G telecommunication networks, the experience center relies on EHang’s command-and-control system platform to enable trial operations for the EH216, Falcon B, and other eVTOL models.  Moreover, the 5G Intelligent Air Mobility Experience Center includes an Automatic Guided Vehicle Parking Garage, which will, in the future, provide a more seamless transfer experience in car travel and aerial trips.

With Guangzhou taking the lead in investing in UAM infrastructure construction, several operational flight routes have been planned and tested for passenger transportation, aerial sightseeing, aerial logistics, smart city management, and more.

Chengjiu Zhou, General Manager of GDDCI, stated “By leveraging the 5G Intelligent Air Mobility Experience Center, we will develop an intelligent air mobility ecosystem integrating the hardware, software, takeoff and landing platform, and operation services in Huangpu district.”

Huazhi Hu, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of EHang, added, “We will use the world’s leading AAV technologies and command-and-control system to provide intelligent, comprehensive solutions for urban air mobility and smart city management in Guangzhou. We expect to build Guangzhou into a model city for UAM and have plans to extend it to more cities across the country and worldwide.”

EHang will also feature in Asian Sky Media’s first-ever UAM report, with an interview talking about the UAM industry. The report is planned to be released during mid-February and also contains data, analysis, as well as thought-provoking insights from eVTOL and UAM companies in the Asia-Pacific region.
