Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft unterliegen dem Gigatrend Digitalisierung und damit auch den Megatrends dieser Zeit. In den kommenden Jahrzehnten werden neben technologischen Innovationen und einer zunehmenden Urbanisierung der Bevölkerung auch das Mobilitätsverhalten und die Individualisierung einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Nachfrage nach neuen und breiteren Angeboten leisten. Die Umsetzung der gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Anforderungen an Mobilität und Vernetzung beeinflussen auch die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit eines Landes.

Approximately 100,000 unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, are already in operation today in Switzerland. Their number will increase sharply in the future because drone technology presents many new deployment possibilities ranging from logistics and agriculture to infrastructure surveillance.

Concluded Project | Scientific Studies

Interferences that obstruct air traffic control can arise between wind power turbines and Skyguide’s air traffic control facilities. This constrains the potential to utilize wind power on Switzerland’s small territory. One current problem is that it is often difficult to gauge the interference effects of wind turbines due to the lack of an appropriate measurement tool.
