UC Berkeley Civil and Environmental Engineering doctoral student Xuan Jiang and professor Raja Sengupta, withYuhan Tang, , Junzhe Cao, Vishwanath Bulusu, and Cristian Poliziani recently released a new survey paper that discussed "simulation" in the integration of urban air mobility to provide a comprehensive comparison of existing traffic simulators and give informative choice sets about specific research requirements on simulators when choosing a simulator or building your own simulator for your UAM study design: Simulating the Integration of Urban Air Mobility into Existing Transportation Systems: A Survey.

Urban air mobility (UAM) has the potential to revolutionize transportation in metropolitan areas, providing a new mode of transportation that could alleviate congestion and improve accessibility. However, the integration of UAM into existing transportation systems is a complex task that requires a thorough understanding of its impact on traffic flow and capacity. In this paper, we conduct a survey to investigate the current state of research on UAM in metropolitan-scale traffic using simulation techniques. We identify key challenges and opportunities for the integration of UAM into urban transportation systems, including impacts on existing traffic patterns and congestion; safety analysis and risk assessment; potential economic and environmental benefits; and the development of shared infrastructure and routes for UAM and ground-based transportation. We also discuss the potential benefits of UAM, such as reduced travel times and improved accessibility for underserved areas. Our survey provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of research on UAM in metropolitan-scale traffic using simulation and highlights key areas for future research and development. Our objective is to furnish a comprehensive and current examination of this subject matter, inciting significant dialogue and laying the groundwork for future endeavors.
