Graphene batteries may make eVTOLs (flying cars) a reality more quickly than lithium batteries.
Heads’ up, Airbus. There’s a new air bus coming to town. Actually, it’s coming to downtown, perhaps a downtown near you. Kelekona, a New York City-based start-up, has set its sights on developing a mass transit eVTOL as big as a city bus. With a payload of 10,000 lbs. (about 4500 kg), Kelekona is aiming…
Low SWaP-C radar will facilitate the development of a feasible detect and avoid system and accelerate autonomous urban air mobility.
In director Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 dystopian film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Man (astronaut, Dr. Dave Bowman) and Machine (the spaceship’s computer system, the “heuristically programmed algorithmic computer system” aka HAL) face off over control of the ship and the astronaut’s fate. As HAL’s artificial intelligence (AI) system develops a “mind of its own,” HAL’s interests…
When will the cost of flying cars (VTOLs) be affordable? It may be a moot point.
The European Aviation and Space Agency (EASA) surveyed EU citizens and found they, in general, had positive feelings about integrating urban air mobility into their lives.
