The newest flying car that is ready to fly in the future

Flying cars will come true. Already many manufacturing companies in the world are developing it, and in the near future it will begin to be marketed to consumers in various parts of the world. It may still take a few more years to make it a mode of transportation.

And the logical consequence is of course special regulations that will regulate the existence of flying cars so as not to collide with airplanes. Moreover, these cars will be operated in the air, so they have a greater risk factor and are dangerous as well than conventional cars.
Just a matter of time, because it won't be long before we will be able to take advantage of the flying car technology. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2PNRRkk)
We can find a picture of a flying car in some sci-fi files. If it becomes a reality of course the price is very expensive, because it uses very sophisticated technology that makes it able to be used on the highway and in the air. Well this is the advantage of flying cars compared to airplanes, because it can be used in two different fields. We believe that all automotive companies will continue to develop this type of car, so that later the price of flying cars can be more affordable.

Innovation in the automotive world does not die. It is evident that every company competes to present the best technology to present the vehicle of the future. Even the caliber company Google is developing a flying car named Zee Aero and Kitty Hawk. Previously, Google also developed autonomous cars that could run automatically. Not only Google, a Japanese company, Toyota also designed a car called the SkyDrive that is staying by Gadang as a future car in Japan.

There are many other cars that are being developed by large companies throughout the world. Now to find out what flying cars will be launched soon, let's look at the following information:

1. Aeromobil 4.0

Audi cooperates with Airbus and Italdesign to create a future flying car

As time goes by, technology is now increasingly developed and sophisticated. Not surprisingly, if nowadays many findings are unexpected even thought for a long time but have not been realized because of the limited technology in past. Call it one product that was successfully created thanks to the use of the latest technology is the flying cars.
Audi Pop.Up Next flying car concept developed along with Airbus and Italdesign has been shown at the Geneva International Motor Show 2018. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2PgadtM)
Lately, the flying cars have been developed both by airlines and automotive manufacturers. As created by Audi which works together with a French commercial aircraft manufacturers, Airbus and the provider of development services for the automotive industry, Italdesign.

Those three big companies have succeeded in making the flying car. Not only make, they also plan to do testing it in the air. And reportedly, the testing process of the flying car has been approved by the German government.

As reported by Carscoops, the car that has two seats will conduct a flight test in Ingolstadt, Germany. If the flying car manages to undergo the entire trial process and fly smoothly on the sky, the car will be produced in limited quantities and used as the flying taxi.

"Flying taxi is no longer a vision, they can bring us into new mobility. This is a great opportunity for old and new companies to develop new technologies, "said German Transportation Minister, Andreas Scheuer.

Recently, they also have introduced this flying car in March 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 automotive exhibition. And the flying car that is still in the form of the concept is named Audi Pop.Up Next.

This flying car is based on electricity and has implemented autonomous technology as well. This two passengers compact designed vehicle also has land and air modules. Yes, so as not to be too heavy, the manufacturers decided to make the car's body from carbon fiber materials. And the Pop.Up Next has a dimension of 2.6 meters long, 1.4 meters high and 1.5 meters wide.

On the landline modules, the Pop.Up Next relies on two electric motors that have a battery capacity of 15 kWh. And Audi promises the Pop.Up Next can spit out power equivalent to 80 horsepower and is believed to be able to drive 130 km for a single fully battery charge.

As for the flying modules that are equipped with four propellers like drones. Each propeller is powered by an electric motor of 26 horsepower which is packed with a battery with a capacity of 70 kWh.
Rear view of Audi Pop.Up Next flying car concept. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2PgadtM)
When the flight mode is activated, the maximum power that can be produced by all propellers is reach out 214 hp. For maximum speed when adjusting the flight module, it is possible for the Pop.Up Next to reach a top speed of up to 120 km/hour.

Furthermore, this Pop.Up Next only has a range of 50 km with a single fully battery charge. If the battery runs out, this capsule must be recharged for 15 minutes to be able operated again.
The Pop.Up Next is claimed to be the right solution to overcome the density of traffic in big cities. The passengers just sit down calmly and input their destination, then the system will drive and fly it automatically.

Unfortunately, so far there has been no detail information about when the Pop.Up Next is produced and sold to the public. Well, we'll wait for the next infos of this flying car. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOBLOG | PHYS.ORG | CARSCOOPS]

An AirSpaceX's Autonomous Flying Taxi Concept

Autonomous and electric-powered vehicles have changed the face of land transportation, then the evolution of energy that accompanied it inspired many to continue to adopt these technology.

And it seems also that has helped inspire the Airspace Experience Technologies (AirSpaceX) to develop a concept of air transportation system by initiating a flying taxi project called MOBi-ONE. These concept has been introduced to the public at the 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) event in Detroit, United States some time ago.
MOBi-ONE is designed to ease traffic congestion and speed up urban commutes. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2yxwtoI)

This aircraft was designed and manufactured by Detroit Aircraft (DAC) which is a subsidiary of AirSpaceX at Detroit City Airport.

And later, after MOBi ONE has undergone the entire Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification process, it will be operated by AirSpaceX. Since 2011, the company and its partners have collaborated to create prototypes and develop several designs from the VTOL concept itself.
AirSpaceX shows off its MOBi-ONE model at the North American International Auto Show 2018. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2yxwtoI)
The MOBi-ONE is designed as an autonomous vehicle, which can carry 2 to 4 passengers or cargo above 200 kg/440 lbs to an area that is within 60 miles (96 km), including the airport and city center. Its VTOL design allows it to take off like a helicopter, then positioned its wings and fly like a plane with a top speed of 250 mph (402 km/jam).

Passengers will be treated to broadband connectivity for high-speed internet access and can enjoy the flights safely and comfortably in a V2X collision avoidance system and a security message system. MOBi-ONE is able to learn by itself and will eventually be able to operate without a pilot. But for now, there are still pilots accompanying it during the flight.

According to Jon Rimanelli, the Detroit Aircraft and AirSpaceX's founder and CEO said that the MOBi-ONE will ultimately offer environmentally friendly, quiet and timely air travel at reasonable prices. But Rimanelli did not disclose how much it would cost per trip.
Rimanelli also claims the MOBi-ONE will be ready for demonstrations starting in 2020. Furthermore, JP Yorro, at AirSpaceX's Chief Commercial Officer said, that the plans to launch 2,500 MOBI-ONE aircraft by 2026, which will be distributed in the 50 major cities in the United States.
The MOBi-ONE has the potential to be used more than just a taxi. This can also be used for medical and evacuation purposes, as well as research and surveillance operations. While AirSpaceX believes that the MOBI-ONE concept will reduce the urban's road traffic and travel time.
And these company is not the only one that developed the concept of flying taxis, there are Uber and NASA, and then there're Airbus and Boeing with Near Earth Autonomy, also has the concept of flying taxis. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AIRSPACEX | NEW ATLAS | CISION]
