eVertiSKY Advances Italy's Highway UAM with Green Island Project

Strategic UAM Consultancy: Pathway to Activation for Emergency Response
CHICAGO - March 26, 2024 - PRLog -- Evertisky, in partnership with the Giancarlo Zema Design Group, is involved in the Green Island EV charging stations project for ANAS, part of Italy's motorway network modernization, including "Smart Roads" and "Green Islands" initiatives. Evertisky's role focuses on Urban Air Mobility (UAM) consultancy to enhance emergency response capabilities introducing AAM ground space and airspace into the highway network, a first of its kind.

The project, designed by Giancarlo Zema, incorporates vertistops at Green Island control centers for quick deployment of UAM first-responder aircraft for emergency response in support of traffic management.

"The vision of the Smart Road is for safe, trouble-free travel with assisted and/or autonomous driving, roads with adequate levels of maintenance, timely intervention in emergencies and alerts on the user's mobile, real-time info-mobility, and increased efficiency with elevation of arterial operating factors through the use of modern technology." Said ANAS.

This initiative aligns with a broader strategy to weave UAM into Italy's existing motorway fabric, with plans to upgrade 3000 kilometers by 2030. This effort aims to boost transportation safety and efficiency through state-of-the-art monitoring and information systems. Positioned every thirty kilometers, Green Islands will also provide photovoltaic (PV) charging for electric vehicles and solar-powered lighting, not only supports the project's sustainability goals but also serves as strategic nodes for UAM deployment.

"The ANAS Green Islands won the 2023 Chicago Athenaeum Museum's Green Good Design Award," said Giancarlo Zema, President of Giancarlo Zema Design Group and Founder-Chief of Architecture and Design of eVertiSKY. "Featuring a rooftop vertistop with a solar panel landing pad for UAM aircraft and LED signage, developed with eVertiSKY consultancy, the project underscores our commitment to sustainability and seizing UAM market opportunities."

In this interconnected framework, eVertiSKY's consulting strategy, especially in the Green Island project, emphasizes developing and optimizing UAM routes. Their approach involves detailed analysis to identify efficient pathways for UAM aircraft, focusing on emergency response scenarios and traffic management solutions. This planning is crucial for reducing response times and enhancing UAM operations' effectiveness during critical incidents.

"Our expertise in developing vertihub systems is pivotal for enhancing Italy's emergency response capabilities and community safety. The operational launch of the initial two Green Island stations signifies our direct contribution to expanding UAM across Italy's motorways, setting a definitive standard for integrating advanced mobility solutions into public infrastructure." Said, Sandra Formenton, CEO of eVertiSKY.

In this capacity, eVertiSKY facilitates the operationalization of UAM by creating a framework where UAM strategies can be dynamically developed, tested, and refined. This includes simulating emergency scenarios in controlled environments to assess UAM strategies are aligned with operational needs and requirements.
