And yet, simple logic would have made it possible to guess it. It is a car that contains a drone in its roof.
What is the major disadvantage of drones today? Its autonomy. To be able to fly long, it takes a big battery and it is heavy.
The solution: it is the car that makes the essential part of the journey and the rest of the course is made by the drone.
In the field of search and rescue operations, especially when there are earthquakes or avalanches, it’s ideal!
Airbus is with Boeing one of the two most important companies in aeronautics. It is for this reason that when this company releases a new product, you have to look at it carefully.
The new product is a drone-car. Yes, you read correctly. We all know that cars benefit from a motorway network all over the world. And we also know that there will probably be no such airline networks. Why ? Because in-flight safety standards are much more important.
So the solution is the drone-car. Thus, one can circulate everywhere with his car, and when passing an obstacle, one uses the drone. It’s very ingenious. And as it is Airbus, we can be sure that the project was well thought out. To be continued …
