The Vision, With The Safe, Quiet And Environmentally Friendly Aircraft

This is suitable for the transport of two passengers to revolutionize the mobility in metropolises, which also inspires investors.

The goal is that the technology could be used for airborne travel in congested cities. The goal is to democratise personal flight by leveraging the latest technologies such as electric propulsion, energy storage and machine vision.

To fly, passengers simply mark their destination on a map and the drone creates and executes a flight plan. Experts claim that the craft is robust enough to withstand thunderstorms and typhoons – in the event of problems it can be piloted remotely from a control centre.

The German company behind this rotor is a two-person air taxi recently struck a partnership deal with Intel. Their latest model, the 2x, is capable of 30 minutes of flight – designers are aiming for a full hour, which they think will be sufficient for typical shuttles across most major cities. Risk of crashing is diminished by battery packs.
