How often residents of big cities have to put up with the unenviable shares standing in endless sleepy traffic jam, dreaming of magic supermobile who can just fly over the traffic jam on air. Meanwhile, the advent of air taxi not far off – it is quite foreseeable future.
Let’s start with predictions. The first test copies of aerospacecom scheduled to launch to the skies in 2020 in such advanced cities like Dubai, Los Angeles, Dallas and Singapore. It is expected that two years later, this transport will allow for commercial use. In 2025 flying taxi will be managed autonomously but with full control from the ground. Five years later, such a fleet will consist of about 12 000 copies. And then on the rise.
Over in order to make dreams come true, struggling for many renowned companies. For example, Bosch currently working with the majority of developers air taxi. At the moment, the Germans created a control unit with a set of sensors that determine the height and speed of flight, acceleration and angle of attack of the aircraft.
All of these devices have been repeatedly tested and… production machines. As it turned out, proven technology from the car industry much cheaper and quite suitable in the aerospace industry.
It is worth mentioning that dealing closely with the developments for the car, and now “viamobile” designers do not forget about the motorcycles. At the end of last year, the same Bosch presented the technology to display information from a smartphone on a regular screen on-Board system of a motorcycle, and even control some functions of the phone buttons on the steering wheel.
