The myCopter project aims to pave the way for personal aerial vehicles (PAVs) to be used by the general public within the context of such a transport system.

The project encompasses three separate arms: automation, human-machine interfaces and socio-economic environmental impact.

In addition, an investigation into the human capability of flying a PAV will be conducted, resulting in a user-centred design of a suitable human-machine interface (HMI). This project is a unique integration of technological advancements and social investigations that are necessary to move public transportation into the third dimension.

Undoubtedly, many other problems will have to be tackled: aerospace legislation will have to be overhauled and infrastructure created for ‘parking’ the vehicles at commuters’ workplaces, without the need for an inordinate amount of training.
