AeroMobil at Davos
Friday, January 22, 2016 — AeroMobil became the first company from Slovakia to attend the 46th World Economic Forum in Davos, which is attended by 2500 participants from 100 countries.
One of the important guests among the business leaders, from more than 25 sectors and industries, is Martin Bruncko, who is the Chief Strategy and Financial Officer for the company AeroMobil. Discussions will be held at Davos between potential investors, political leaders, entrepreneurs and global personalities in particular on the subjects of the transformation of passenger traffic and the fourth industrial revolution, which is one of the key themes of this year's Economic Forum.
"The automotive and aerospace industries, thanks to the development of digital technology in recent years, is undergoing profound changes. AeroMobil is fully a part of this revolution "- said Martin Bruncko, who is a recipient of the Young Global Leader Award by the World Economic Forum.
Previous industrial revolutions saw humanity’s progress pushed forward through electricity, mass production and information technologies. The most recent advances were brought to life thanks to the mobile internet, ubiquitous sensors and artificial intelligence, which all reflect hugely accelerated changes in every industry - including automotive (autonomous) and aviation (organization of airspace). As expected participants at the forum in Davos, over the next ten years we will experience, in all areas including transport, more progress than in the last fifty years thanks to digital technological advances.
In both the worlds of automotive and aerospace industries, innovation connects AeroMobil to the debate on the future of passenger transport and takes it to a whole new level. Also, thanks to government grants for research and development activities in Slovakia, AeroMobil created a number of unique solutions that are being applied to the final product and paving the way for increased involvement of domestic and foreign experts. AeroMobil is moving forward by improving the design while also working on a new prototype to provide an innovative means of transport to be seen as an exceptional transport solution with a number of advanced technological features.
AeroMobil obtained support last year under the JRC (Joint Research Centre of the EU), who is currently preparing a strategic document to support the development of emerging sectors of flying cars in Europe. AeroMobil is featured in this study showcase.
