Density-Adapting Layers towards PBN for UTM

Abstract : We study separating urban unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) traffic into altitude levels, using a PBN-inspired approach in which low-density airspace has few layers while congested areas in the city center are split into a larger number of layers. Navigating in the many-layers environment may require better vehicle equipage to support higher performance in terms of altimetry precision; our work thus follows the stakeholders encouragements to use performance-based navigation (PBN) in UAV traffic management (UTM). We present results for several traffic volume scenarios over Norrkoping municipality in Sweden, demonstrating applicability of our solutions in a city setting
