Mobility has brought technological, economic, social, and cultural development as the foundation of people's lives and civilization.
Mobility, however, has also brought about an enormous environmental burden, and we now face with the reality that Mobility accounts for nearly 20% of global CO2 emissions nowadays.
We solve the complexities involved in the "Operation of Fleets" of Mobility and support its evolution and decarbonization as optimizing decision making and saving energy consumption.
Augment operational decision making with technology
Aviation operations require predictions for as long as 16 hours for rapidly changing environments; ever-changing winds, other aircrafts flying at 850 km/h, dynamic turbulence, etc.
Flight operation experts have to make tactical operational decisions in complex environments, relying on their experiences.
NABLA Mobility aims to solve this complex problem of operational optimization using technology, such as AI/ML and user-centric design.
We are a team that integrates top-notch engineering & designing talents with out-of-the-box perspectives that came from a wide variety of backgrounds.
