It will also contribute to the construction of the UAM assesment tool by working on the gaps analysis and the exploratory research plan, the user needs analysis, the creation of the booklet of use cases and the creation of the concept outline which will define several operational and fuctional (and non functional) requirements. EGL will also contribute to the design of the ImAFUSA Observatory and the presentation of a theoretical framework for holistic UAM impact and capacity assessment, considering new indicators (environmental, socioeconomic and safety impact assessment indicators). All activities related to the ImAFUSA Observatory will take place at the physical facilities of the municipality of Egaleo (Citizens will be exposed to real-time UAM demonstrations in specific areas of the city of Egaleo- at a square, at the Municipal park and at an idustrial zone). Also, in order to produce guidelines for decision-making process using ImAFUSA framework, decision makers from EGL and UAM stakeholders will participate in a dynamic workshop during which the significance of the suggested indicators will be discussed and a consensus on the final importance weight of each indicator will be quantified.
