Highways in the sky: Shenzhen promotes 'low-altitude economy'

Shenzhen is gathering public opinion on new policies aimed at developing low-altitude airspace. This typically involves distances from ground level to 1,000 meters. Drones, and the possibility of flying taxis, are just some of the technologies up for discussion. The southern tech hub has a complete drone manufacturing supply chain: over 1,300 companies form a significant industry worth 10 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 70 percent of China's total. And with autonomous prototypes taking off, the technology is ready to make pure-electric passenger drones a reality for the masses. The question is, are cities equipped to manage our ever-more congested urban airspace?
