Repülő versenyautót teszteltek

A drónpiac fejlődésének köszönhetően ma már olyan kvadrokoptereket is készítenek, amelyek valódi közlekedési eszközként is használhatóak. Ilyen az Ausztrál Polgári Repülésbiztonsági Hatóság felügyelete alatt, az Alauda Aeronautics által létrehozott Alauda Airspeeder Mk3 EXA is, amely gyakorlatilag egy repülő autó. A járművel a közelmúltban hajtották végre az első teljes repülési tesztet – írja az IFLScience. A gépet egy profi csapat irányította, egyelőre csak a távolból. A modell ezzel csatlakozott az Airspeederek EXA szériájához. Ide olyan elektromos repülő járművek tartoznak, amelyeket kifejezetten versenyzés céljából terveztek. Az Alaudánál bíznak benne, hogy létrehozhatnak egy versenysorozatot a hasonló gépek számára. A tervek szerint már 2021-ben, három helyszínen elindítanának egy szezont. A vállalat szerint ...

Még idén megnyílhat a világ első, drónoknak szánt reptere

Coventry-ben nyitja meg kapuit a világ első légikikötője (a tervek szerint még az idén novemberben), amit vertikálisan le- és felszálló járművek (eVTOL-ok), azaz repülő teherszállítók és drónok számára építenek. Az Urban Air Port vezetője, Ricky Sandhu elmondása szerint viszont ki kell emelni, hogy itt még nem azokról a repülő autókról van szó, melyekkel egy napon emberek fognak utazni. A helyi futballstadion mellett induló, de egyébként mobilszerkezetű Air-One nevű létesítmény légitaxik, teherhordó drónok csomópontja lesz, melyek használata csökkenteni fogja a környék légszennyezettségét a várakozások szerint. A nulla károsanyag-kibocsátással működő repülőteret az Urban Air Port cég tervezte, amihez 1,2 millió font támogatást is kaptak a brit kormányzati alapból. Képes hálózati áramellátás nélkül működni, a ...
