The prototype look for traffic solution in the city of the future
A range of & # 39; 100 kilometers in the air
Airbus and Audi officially presented Pop.Up Next, the prototype that anticipates the flight flight, electric autonomous future. This scale model is currently 1: 4 already completed some tests on & # 39; real conditions.
the – Next Pop.Up Was presented at Friday Drone, made at an event & # 39; these days in the Dutch city & # 39; Amsterdam. Here we can see the first progress of the project and Audi Airbus, Which had the collaboration of the Italian company ITALDESIGN. Regarding the appearance & # 39; before the prototype maintains its scale 1: 4, although its creators still assert that over the next decade will be & # 39; service.
The romance Next Pop.Up, Defined by & # 39; as widely & # 39; as an electric taxi, flying and autonomous, is a car with & # 39; zero emissions capable of driving itself and has cabin is configured as if it were passenger drone. The proper functioning of the system is currently controlled by & # 39; various simulations carried out by & # 39; Voom, which is one of Airbus has subsidiaries in America the & # 39; South.
the – car drone Has a modular structure which allows divided into three separate and independent parties. The first forms the cabin in which passengers travel, which is 2.5 meters long with & # 39; wide 1.4. Exclude also two transport modes: one with traveling wheels Road, b & # 39; 130 kilometers & # 39; electric autonomy, and other b & # 39; three rotors for air transport, b & # 39 range & # 39;; flight & # 39; 100 kilometers and capacity & # 39; .
"More and more people move to the cities, and in the future, older people, children and those without a driving license will be able to use comfortable robotly taxis," he said during his speech at & # 39; Drone Week Bernd . Martens, director & # 39; Purchasing and IT Audi.
This is not the only project in the air Liza Audi. There initiative Mobility & # 39; Urban Air, Which aims to launch air taxi operating in the facilities of the brand & # 39; four & # 39; in circles & # 39; Neltostadt, Germany, b & # 39; a clear sign of their desire to adapt to future mobility.
