LG Uplus (CEO Hyunsik Hwang) jointly operates an exhibition hall on the ‘2023 Drone Show Korea’ held at BEXCO, Busan from the twenty third to the twenty fifth by the UAM (Urban Air Transportation) consortium ‘UAM Future Team’ formed with Kakao Mobility, GS E&C, and Pablo Aviation. It was announced on the nineteenth.

Drone Show Korea is the biggest drone exhibition in Korea hosted by Busan City, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, the Ministry of Science and ICT, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, and the Ministry of National Defense, and supervised by BEXCO and the Korea Unmanned Aerial System Association. This 12 months, about 600 booths from 160 industry-academia-related institutions promoting drone-related projects will participate.

The UAM Future team will prepare an exhibition booth with a complete size of 320㎡ (40 booths). That is the biggest scale among the many participating corporations, and LGU+ explains that it can introduce the newest technology of the UAM Future Team and secure leadership.

The exhibition hall includes ▲consortium joint pavilion ▲LGU+’s UAM traffic management platform ▲Kakao Mobility’s multimodal mobility vision ▲GS E&C’s smart vertiport (vertical take-off and landing airfield) vision ▲Pablo Airlines’ UAM integrated flight control system and drone delivery solution. It consists of 5 spaces.

First, within the joint hall, a video drawing the long run vision and blueprint of UAM can be screened through a big LED panel.

LGU+ exhibits a traffic management platform that gives UAM flight information sharing, traffic flow management, flight plan approval, and route departure monitoring services in AR (augmented reality) form.

Kakao Mobility demonstrates all the process from route search to UAM and self-driving vehicle calling, operation and traffic control systems and platform interworking, and automatic check-in. As well as, ‘Argos Air’, which builds a digital twin for UAM, and mobility IVI (in-vehicle infotainment) service might be experienced.

GS E&C implements Vertiport, a vertical take-off and landing infrastructure facility. Not only are you able to experience the UAM check-in process, comparable to automatic check-in and security check, however it also provides a virtual reality (VR) experience.

Pablo Airlines introduces the UAM integrated flight control system. It is a system that analyzes risk aspects throughout UAM operation and manages them to enable protected operation. As well as, an experiential event with the theme of logistics drone delivery can be held.

LGU+ has been participating within the ‘K-UAM Grand Challenge’ demonstration project hosted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport since May of last 12 months, and signed a business agreement with Busan Metropolitan City in July of last 12 months to create a UAM ecosystem. In January of this 12 months, it signed an MOU with the Seoul Transportation Corporation to create a fancy transfer center, and in February, it signed an MOU with Plana, a UAM gas startup, for joint development of knowledge transmission technology.

Jeon Yeong-seo, head of the LGU+ Corporate Service Development Lab, said, “It’s meaningful to present the blueprint of the UAM business along with corporations with the very best expertise in each area at this Drone Show Korea.” Because it is taken into account an revolutionary industry, we’ll contribute to the early commercialization of UAM along with our consortium partners.”
