Flying cars around the town, not a yesterday’s fantasy of everyone. People used to observe it some decades ago, and they even immolated their lives for making such vehicles. Even Google’s co-founder is very busy in building a flying car, and so is the aircraft maker Airbus. From 2016, they have been working on making a flying car idea which is known as Vahana, developed by A³ (A-cubed) which is a segment of the Airbus Family.
Airbus has exposed a current and a fresh idea of developing a flying self-sufficient car at this upcoming year’s Geneva International Motor Show. The modular transportation design is named as Pop.Up, which has been developed by Airbus bus in cooperation with Italdesign.
The Pop.Up system consists of a cockpit-style capsule where people can easily sit. The tablet, which is use for engaging two people, is composed of carbon fiber and is about 2.6m long, 1.5m wide, and 1.4m high in dimensions.
It can be easily arranged on a floor module having wheels and can use it as an electric-powered vehicle. It switches into a self-piloted flying electric car when it gets raised by the air module — a vibrating unit — which has the potential of vertical take-off and landing (VOTL).
The structure could be operated with the support of an artificial intelligence platform to minimize the travel complications and standardization a ride involvement. Also, we won’t allow someone is driving a flying car with the assist of an L-plotter.
Along with this the ground and aerial transportation using the tablet, Airbus also decide’s to take it underground by mixing it with underdevelopment technologies like Hyperloop. The idea will also include making this modular vehicle concept as public transport. The ground and air modules have committed journey’s where they would return for charging after dropping a capsule at the desired location.
