The prototype strives to address traffic in the city of the future
It has an air distance of 100 km
Audi and Airbus officially introduced Pop.Up Next, a prototype that predicts the flying, electric and autonomous taxi of the future. At present it is a 1: 4 scale model that has already completed some tests under real conditions.
The Pop.Up Next It was introduced at Drone Week, the events that are taking place in Amsterdam in Amsterdam these days. There we were able to see the development of the Audi and Audi project first hand Airbus, which cooperated with an Italian company ItaldesignAs for the previous performance, the prototype retains a 1: 4 scale, although its creators still claim to be in the next decade.
Novel Pop.Up Next, broadly defined as an electric, flying and autonomous taxi, is a zero-emission vehicle that is capable of driving itself and which has a cabin that is configured as if it were a personal drona. The good functioning of the system is currently controlled by various simulations conducted through Voom, one of Airbus's subsidiaries in South America.
The self-droning It has a modular structure that allows you to divide into three separate and independent parts. The first one is the cabin in which passengers travel, which is 2.5 meters long with a width of 1.4. Two transport modules also coexist: one with road wheels, 130 kilometers of electric autonomy and the other with eight air rotors, with a 100 km flight range and full charge capacity in just 15 minutes,
"More and more people are moving to cities, and in the future, elderly people, children and those without a driving license will be able to use taxi robots comfortably," said Week Bernd during his speech. Martens, Head of Purchasing and IT Audi,
It's not the only airplane project in the league Audi, There's an initiative Urban air mobility, which aims to launch an air taxi that will operate at the four-ring machines in Inglotstadt, a clear sign of their desire to adapt to the future of mobility.
