Evolving Ground Mobility at Airports

Research output: NRELPresentation


Airports not only serve air traffic, but are leading regional ground mobility hubs. Emerging mobility technologies often first appear in implementation at airports, where technologies undergo refinement and improvement before broader application in other settings. With a goal of better understanding the mobility landscape and related research needs through the perspective of airport industry practitioners and leaders, the NREL team facilitated brainstorming and conversation to identify trends and critical evaluation objectives. This report includes information on several key topics and challenges, such as enabling mobility electrification, interaction with grid and building sectors, demographic profiles and serving the needs of people with reduced mobility, way finding in ever larger facilities, mobility automation, and other emerging themes.
