Joby宣布推出适用于空中出租车运营的“ElevateOS”软件套件

Joby已经开发了专有软件,以支持革命性的高节奏,按需空中出租车运营;软件套件已经经历了真实世界的测试,在过去的两年里,利用Joby的第135部分认证;Joby的运营总裁,Bonny Simi,和首席产品官,Eric Allison,提出了一个“飞行前检查清单”的商业服务。

Joby专有的ElevateOS空中出租车软件系统包括运营核心、飞行员应用程序和用户友好的乘客应用程序,从左到右,所有这些都已获得FAA的授权,由Joby的Part 135组织使用。

加州圣克鲁斯,2024 年 6 月 20 日——Joby Aviation, Inc.(纽约证券交易所股票代码:JOBY)是一家开发电动空中出租车提供商业客运服务的公司,今天宣布已获得联邦航空管理局(“FAA”)授权使用一套内部开发的名为“ElevateOS”的软件工具,该工具旨在实现高节奏的按需空中出租车运营。

ElevateOS操作系统将在今天晚些时候的虚拟演示中推出,包括试点工具、运营和日程管理软件、移动优先骑手应用程序和智能匹配引擎。匹配引擎类似于目前叫车应用使用的引擎,将乘客与可用的飞机和着陆基础设施配对,以尽可能高效地提供旅程。Joby计划使用ElevateOS支持自己的空中出租车业务,并将其提供给购买飞机的选定合作伙伴,作为更广泛服务方案的一部分。

在今天的演讲中,Joby将介绍它正在进行的一系列其他准备工作,以支持最早在2025年推出商业空中出租车业务,包括飞行员培训和使用与Joby的飞机载客量相同的传统飞机模拟其计划中的空中出租车服务。利用美国联邦航空管理局两年多前颁发的第135部分航空承运人证书,Joby已经能够使用其ElevateOS软件测试其计划运营的核心方面,方法是:

·为 Joby 团队成员提供真正的按需乘客服务,使他们能够使用 Joby 骑手应用程序预订航班,自由选择时间、出发地和目的地
·使用自动化工具将乘客与具有类似路线的其他乘客匹配
·从乔比团队成员和外部客户那里收取整架飞机包机费用
·整合使用 Joby 飞行员应用程序、骑手应用程序和后端运营软件
自 2021 年收购优步的空中出租车部门 Uber Elevate 以来,乔比一直在公司内部积极开发和测试这些软件工具。2019 年,优步 Elevate 在纽约推出了世界上第一个随叫随到的多模式空中出租车服务 UberCopter,使用传统直升机,可通过优步应用程序预订。

“我们计划提供的空中出租车服务与以往的任何空中交通都不同。我们希望旅客按需预订,并在几分钟内登机,就像现在使用地面拼车一样。这要求我们彻底重新考虑这些飞机的软件和操作,”Joby首席产品官、Uber Elevate前负责人埃里克·艾利森(Eric Allison)表示,“我们从零开始构建了ElevateOS,以实现高节奏的按需飞行,为客户节省真正的时间并实现无缝移动性。

“ElevateOS是多年迭代和现实生活经验的结晶,我们相信它是目前最复杂、高效和灵活的航空运营工具套件。”

 

今天的演讲还将涵盖乔比正在开展的一系列其他活动,为运营做准备,包括:

电动空中出租车飞行员培训:Joby开发了一种特定于飞机的培训课程,该课程使合格的商业飞行员能够在大约六周内驾驶Joby飞机。该课程包括使用沉浸式飞行模拟培训设备,这些设备是与全球航空培训领导者CAE合作开发的。此外,Joby已经开始提供私人飞行员培训和地面学校,作为其未来飞行员培训学院的一部分。

打造未来的维修队伍:Joby今年早些时候获得了第145部分维修许可证,并正在制定全面的维护、修理和大修(MRO)战略,以确保全球市场的飞机利用率最大化。Joby获得了美国联邦航空局 100 万美元的拨款,用于支持维修培训课程的开发。

实施严格的安全系统:Joby是第一家安全管理系统被美国联邦航空局(FAA)的自愿空中运营计划接受,支持公司第135部分运营的电动空中出租车公司。2023年进行安全审核后,它也是第一家获得国际公务航空理事会(International Business Aviation Council)管理的公务航空运营第一阶段国际标准认证的空中出租车公司。

Joby运营总裁邦尼·西米表示:“在电动空中出租车的认证和制造,以及商业服务的准备工作方面,我们处于行业领先地位。这是任何一家公司提供高效、无缝的空中出租车运营所必需的严格工作,其中许多项目已经酝酿多年。”

乔比电动空中出租车旨在搭载一名飞行员和四名乘客,以每小时 200 英里的速度行驶,提供高速机动性,而产生的噪音只是直升机的一小部分,零运行排放。

Joby打算与合作伙伴达美航空一起在美国市场运营其飞机,包括纽约市和洛杉矶,并在阿拉伯联合酋长国,该公司有一个为期六年的独家协议,在迪拜提供空中出租车服务。Joby还将与某些海外地区的当地运营商合作,并支持其飞机直接销售给商业客户,如沙特阿美的航空公司Mukamalah,以及潜在的政府合作伙伴,如美国国防部。

今日的演示将通过本公司投资者网站的“即将举行的活动”部分进行。活动将在有限时间内在网上进行重播。

原文:Joby has developed proprietary software to support revolutionary high-tempo, on-demand air taxi operations; Software suite has undergone real-world testing over the past two years, leveraging Joby’s Part 135 certification; Joby’s President of Operations, Bonny Simi, and Chief Product Officer, Eric Allison, to present a ‘Pre-Flight Checklist’ for commercial service

 

Joby’s proprietary ElevateOS air taxi software system includes an operations core, a pilot app, and a consumer-friendly rider app, from left to right, all of which have been FAA-authorized for use by Joby’s Part 135 organization. Joby Aviation ImageSanta Cruz, CA, Jun 20, 2024 — Joby Aviation, Inc. (NYSE:JOBY), a company developing electric air taxis for commercial passenger service, today announced it has received Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) authorization to use a suite of software tools developed in-house, called ‘ElevateOS’, that are designed to enable high-tempo, on-demand air taxi operations.

The ElevateOS operating system, which will be introduced during a virtual presentation later today, includes pilot tools, operations and schedule management software, a mobile-first rider app, and an intelligent matching engine. The matching engine is similar to those used by ride-hailing apps today and pairs passengers with available aircraft and landing infrastructure to deliver journeys that are as efficient as possible. Joby plans to use ElevateOS to support its own air taxi operations, as well as making it available to selected partners who purchase the aircraft, as part of a wider services package.

During today’s presentation, Joby will cover a range of other preparations it is making to support the launch of commercial air taxi operations as soon as 2025, including pilot training and the simulation of its planned air taxi service using a conventional aircraft that carries the same number of passengers as Joby’s aircraft. Utilizing a Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate granted by the Federal Aviation Administration more than two years ago, Joby has already been able to use its ElevateOS software to test core aspects of its planned operations, by:

  • Offering Joby team members a true, on-demand passenger service, enabling them to book flights with free choice of timing, origin and destination, using the Joby rider app
  • Matching passengers with similar routes to each other, using automation tools
  • Taking payments from Joby team members and external customers for whole-aircraft chartered flights
  • Integrating the use of the Joby pilot app, rider app and back-end operational software

 

Joby has been actively developing and testing these software tools, in-house, since acquiring Uber Elevate, the air taxi division of Uber in 2021. In 2019, Uber Elevate launched and ran UberCopter, the world’s first on-demand, multi-modal air taxi service in New York City, using traditional helicopters that were bookable via the Uber app.

“The air taxi service we plan to deliver isn’t like any sort of air travel that’s existed before. We expect travelers to book on-demand and to be boarding an aircraft just minutes later, much like the experience of using ground-based ridesharing today. That required us to totally rethink the software and the operations of these aircraft,” said Eric Allison, Chief Product Officer at Joby and former Head of Uber Elevate. “We’ve built ElevateOS from the ground up to enable high-tempo, on-demand flights that will deliver true time savings and seamless mobility to customers.

“ElevateOS is the result of many years of iteration and real-life experience and we’re confident it is the most sophisticated, efficient, and flexible suite of air operations tools available today.”

Today’s presentation will also cover a range of other activities Joby is undertaking to prepare for operations, including:

Training Electric Air Taxi Pilots: Joby has developed an aircraft-specific training course that prepares qualified commercial pilots to fly the Joby aircraft in about six weeks. The course includes the use of immersive flight simulation training devices being developed in partnership with CAE, a global leader in aviation training. Additionally, Joby has already begun offering private pilot training and ground school as part of its future pilot training academy.

Building the Maintenance Workforce of the Future: Joby received its Part 145 Maintenance Certificate earlier this year and is developing a comprehensive maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) strategy to ensure maximum aircraft utilization in markets around the globe. Joby received a $1 million grant from the FAA to support the development of maintenance training programs.

Implementing Rigorous Safety Systems: Joby was the first electric air taxi company to have a Safety Management System accepted into the FAA’s Voluntary Program for Air Operations, supporting the Company’s Part 135 operations. It was also the first air taxi company to be awarded the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations Stage 1 Certification, administered by the International Business Aviation Council, following a safety audit in 2023.

“We are leading the industry in the certification and manufacturing of our electric air taxi as well as in our preparations for commercial service,” said Bonny Simi, President of Operations at Joby. “This is rigorous work that is required for any company to provide efficient and seamless air taxi operations, and many of these items have been years in the making.”

Joby’s electric air taxi is designed to carry a pilot and four passengers at speeds of up to 200 mph, offering high-speed mobility with a fraction of the noise produced by helicopters and zero operating emissions.

Joby intends to operate its aircraft in the U.S. markets including New York City and Los Angeles alongside partner Delta Air Lines, and in the United Arab Emirates, where the Company has a six-year exclusive agreement to provide air taxi services in Dubai. Joby will also partner with local operators in certain overseas geographies, as well as supporting direct sales of its aircraft to business customers such as Mukamalah, the aviation arm of Saudi Aramco, and to potential government partners such as the U.S. Department of Defense.

Today’s presentation will be available via the Upcoming Events section of the Company’s investor website. A replay of the event will be available online for a limited time.
