From ancient times to today, people ’s exploration of the sky has never ended. Although people ’s tracks have already reached outer space at this stage, everyone ’s development and design of transportation in the sky is still not as easy as road transportation. However, everyone is targeting this area. The open sky is not easy to abandon, which is why the definition of flying cars appears.
There are already several companies on the market that have defined the design of flying cars, but Hyundai Motor has recently announced that it will be involved in this industry. Although it is not clear at this stage when the first contemporary flying car will be completed and put into production, it has already announced that it will The 2020 CES will be released at the 2020.
Hyundai has not yet revealed the key points of many flying taxis, it is called "private aircraft". It will enter the CES 2020 exhibition with an unmanned car series. In addition, it also has a customizable design solution with the flying car, which can be used for a variety of different main purposes. Hyundai Motors said that the emergence of the car will open a new situation for urban public transportation.
Hyundai Motors said that taxis will vacate indoor spaces in large city street communities and "show high-quality commuting time to big city travelers." At this stage, there is a widespread consensus among most car companies that they will be used as a ride-sharing service project over the sky, and then show a more reasonable transportation in big cities. And Uber and other ride-sharing and rotting companies have already started a reasonable layout at this stage, and plan to conduct demonstration projects in Los Angeles and Dallas.
It may sound handsome to call an aviation taxi instead of an ordinary car, but it will be difficult to make this corporate vision a reality. The basic principle of a flying taxi is more like a helicopter, and the method of vertical take-off and landing is used, which allows it to solve the huge space limitation necessary for an airport. However, this has also caused new problems. The flying taxi service project must also have a complicated automatic air traffic control system to manage hundreds of vehicles that will be air-launched in the big city street communities to prevent accidents.
The idea that Hyundai put forward explicitly is that not everyone actually has a flying car, but just a definition of the core area of aviation, which is more like a flying passenger car. Passengers "enter the car" at the "Airbus" subway station and "vehicle" at the arrival station, which is convenient for saving travel time. To put it in simpler terms, in fact, it means that the airport that can take off and land vertically (multi-axis helicopter?) Is used as a means of transportation. The "subway station" or small and medium-sized airport is used in communities and modern cities. intermediate.
This type of aviation core area (also known as a small helicopter airfield) is important to the vision of modern automobile companies. They will spread throughout the metropolitan area, both as access points for a quasi-decentralized road network, and as a public gathering indoor space for nearby communities.
Hyundai declared: "Applying routes will soon reduce road congestion and give high-quality time to big city travelers." Contemporary concept sports cars will be exhibited at the Mandalay Bay South International Convention Center on January 6.
In recent years, with the increasing number of auto companies entering the mobile industry, from more self-driving cars and pure electric vehicles to urban and rural planning and other more general traffic trip definitions, their popularity at the CES Consumer Electronics Show is growing , Also turned into an exhibition of car companies to enter the advanced technology.
Hyundai Motor's vision for the future of interconnection is consistent with many other auto companies, not to mention some non-car physical lines that expect to enter their mobile transportation. Maserati announced in October that it had already jointly developed a flying car with the American Boeing Company. The latter aerospace expertise has made their joint venture, Meteor Aviation Scientific Research Enterprise, the most valuable in the manufacturing industry. One of the promising companies.
Regardless of expectations, there is still a long way to go for new projects over the sky. So how do overseas netizens evaluate this matter?
Netizens overseas are dismissive of flying cars. That Kevin's netizen summed it up in a timely manner:
1. A small and medium-sized flying car will consume a lot of electric energy, which is the most important problem.
2. Everyone has to learn to fly an airplane, it is really too difficult.
3. The noise problem will become another big annoying problem.
4. Costs and market prices are unacceptable to many people.
However, people do not clear that the world of flying cars will indeed be the future, but at least in terms of the current stage of scientific and technological progress and the utilization of electricity and energy, flying cars have a long way to go to enter the ordinary people's clothing, food and housing.
Relative to the busy and busy road traffic, the vast sky seems to be a major direction for the development trend of future transportation. However, although there are no restrictions in the sky, there should still be a pair of transportation trips. The selection of air routes A series of problems such as the impact of flying cars, hazards to households and microorganisms are all urgently existing beings, but there is a long time to perfect this technology, and people have enough time to gradually deal with this problem.
