It comes as no surprise that at CES, many drones are on display this week. Nearly each of them has a single element which is similar. But, it is not possible for people to ride in them. We state ‘nearly each’ since one exception exists.
Ehang’s 184 AAV (Autonomous Aerial Vehicle) is structured to transport one human passenger, separately flying them to one destination from another one.
The CEO of Ehang, Huazhi Hu started creating the electric drone which has a single seater two years back following the demise of a couple of his pilot friends in airplane crashes. He thought people require a kind of individual air transport of a distance of short to medium where there was no need for them to possess a pilot’s license. This lowered the risk of flights of low-altitude.
The concept behind the 184 which was created by Chinese is that users will just get inside, power it, choose their destination with the use of a touch screen tablet display of 12”, then click the button for ‘take-off.
The automatic flight systems of the flight will handle it from there, taking care of jobs like getting in touch with air traffic control as well as other aircraft, keeping off from barriers and navigation; it will at all times select the route which is the quickest and most secure between its current position and its destination.
