Envisioning the future of On-Demand Urban Air Transportation

UBER Elevate aims to demonstrate it's first on-demand urban air transportation service to the public in 2020. As a multidisciplinary team of 5 designers, we were challenged to envision this future by designing the complete user experience for a holistic system including eVTOLs, Waterports and a Mobile app interface aimed at delivering a safe, hassle-free, and seamless experience for busy commuters in Dubai, Dallas, and Los Angeles.

This project was presented on May 9th of 2018 at the Uber Elevate Summit, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.
