Transformer Taxi: Airbus Reveals Taxi That Can Fly
Airbus has unveiled a spectacular transformer taxi at the recent Geneva Motor Show that can be picked up by drones to fly. The modular system consists of a two-seater capsule that could put an end to traffic jams. Called Pop.Up, it functions as a car which can carry the rider to the destination by a vertical take-off when the roads are too congested.
Once passengers reach their destination, both the air and ground modules will return to dedicated recharge stations and wait to be summoned by the next customers. Pop.Up is a collaboration between Airbus and Italdesign, a design and engineering firm based in Italy. The CEO of Italdesign hopes that transportation will reach new levels in the years to come.
The transformer taxi sounds pretty good and easy to use. All the customer has to do is book their trip on Airbus' application. The companion app can also instantly display the best way the transportation can lead them to their destination.
After Pop.Up looks at all the possibilities based on timing, traffic congestion, costs and ridesharing demands, it then advises the rider on what route to choose. Customers can select the ground, air transportation, or even both. Once ordered, the two-seater capsule will then roll up at your location, the Stock News USA reports.
Once inside the transformer taxi, it will scan the passengers face for authenticity and according to a concept video, it will also show content on the screen for users to watch as they travel. Consisting of monocoque carbon-fiber cocoon, it measures 8.5 feet (2.6 meters) long, 4.5 feet (1.4 meters) high, and 16 feet (meters) wide. It runs on a battery, and can travel for 62 miles (100 kilometers) on a single charge, the Daily Mail reports.
The self-piloted air vehicle will take advantage of the third dimension to get from A to B efficiently to avoid traffic congestion on the ground. This system is expected to start working in 2024 or even in 2027. Airbus’ main purpose is to avoid the traffic congestion that will definitely take place in about ten years.
