Abstract

eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) for urban mobility is currently evolving and many concepts of configurations with which vertical take-off and landing could be made possible are discussed like a multi-copter, lift and cruise, and tilt-wing. All these concepts have different behavior from the flight dynamics perspective. The one which is predominantly discussed here is the proposed model Cityhawk by Urban Aeronautics with a ducted fan vane control system. Urban Aeronautics has very high levels of aerospace experience on its team (including experts from Boeing and military development) and has completed flights of Cormorant drones which prove the concept for the passenger CityHawk. This project aims to conceptually design and building a nonlinear 6 DOF dynamic model of an eVTOL with a proposed configuration on a MATLAB Simulink.

Keywords: eVTOL, Urban Air Mobility, Simulink, MATLAB, Urban Aeronautics
