UBER ELEVATE URBAN TRANSPORT INITIATIVE
VIMANA - URBAN AIR SAFETY SYSTEM
Joshua Portlock, Electro.Aero TEDx Perth, Western Australia
UBER AIR in USA is based on setting up an urban transport system using electric vertical take-off & landing aircraft or eVTOL for short (a few are displayed above).
It is envisaged that very soon eVTOLs will start to take the place of other forms of urban road and rail transport. As new battery technology and autonomous guidance systems are developed there will be a natural progression away from fossil-fuel driven surface vehicles to eVTOL aircraft beyond city use, to inter-city and finally international eVTOL transport. This move will relieve road and airport congestion, as well as reduce burdensome infrastructure costs.
Technically electrically driven ducted fans could replace commercial turbofan jet aircraft and fly at the same speeds. There would be huge benefits and advantages such as improved safety, lower costs and zero pollution.
The question often asked is how can all these aircraft fly around in such a small space without crashing into each other or buildings?
The next video will explain how this can easily be achieved!
