Drones: The Future of Taxis and Transportations?
This has generated interest amongst the aviation industry, with companies that want to be part of Uber’s exciting new vision developing VTOL aircrafts faster than ever. One that stands out is Carter Aviation Technologies and their partner, Mooney. They have begun developing vehicles which are capable of holding up to six passengers. The CEO, Jay Carter, has drawn attention to its patented “slowed rotor compound design” that allows it to cruise at 175 mph and hovers much efficiently. The vehicle also includes a high-inertia main rotor which is more or less a safety net that provides directional control in event of an emergency. https://campuspress.yale.edu/tribune/drones-the-future-of-taxis-and-transportations/
