Sustainability and Connected Autonomy: A New Era for Aviation

The Carnegie Mellon University team, with their project titled, Sustainability and Connected Autonomy: A New Era for Aviation, took first place in the inaugural Gateways to Blue Skies Competition. Competing among eight finalist teams who presented their ideas for future airport design updates needed to accommodate climate-friendly aviation advancements, the team earned the top award at the 2022 Blue Skies Forum, hosted at NASA’s Langley Research Center on June 2-3. The Forum was judged by subject matter experts from NASA and industry. The team also recently presented their ideas at the Airports Council International: North America - Annual Conference and Exhibition on September 18.The team consists of 5 members: Aaron Burns, Iana Iacob, Shruti Prasanth, Tahaseen Shaik, and Ashima Sharma. The members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including chemical engineering, engineering and public policy, human-computer interaction, communication design, civil engineering, robotics, and electric and computer engineering. The team believes that having this interdisciplinary background is a primary motivator of their success. Solving complex engineering problems requires an interdisciplinary understanding of the science, the policy, the engineering, the public perception, and the government-industry intersection that all need to be considered and addressed for the long-term success of these large-scale projects. The team will be presenting their award winning approach to the Design of Future Airports of 2050. The presentation comprises of different sections and desciplines including Connected Autonomy, Human Interaction, Civil Engineering,Electrical Engineering and Public Policy.
