The Volocopter has been designed with features much fitted for an urban air taxi – ultralight, quiet, electric, and it allows for a vertical takeoff. Moreover its intelligent system can facilitate air-taxi hailing services with the use of smartphones.
#Dubai’s flying taxi tests form part of the city’s goal to have autonomous cars handling 25% of passenger transport by 2030.
At the intersection of smartphones, autonomous vehicles and air-taxi-hailing, a new suite of integrated services will soon become the new normal for the urbanized world.
Definitely exciting will be to see more cities adopting these ambitious goals and having a new wave of entrepreneurs entering the space.
