Ok, so our cars aren’t flying yet like the Jetsons – but CNN just reported that MyCopter is coming as a personal aviation vehicle. Of course, there are the trials and tribulations associated with teaching people to fly vs drive and establish airspace regulation to avoid collisions. The European Union is trying to tackle all these issues according to the article:
“Under the four-year project, the EU has drawn together six institutes from across Europe to look at the problems associated with commuting in personal aviation vehicles (PAVs). At the center of the research is a focus, not so much on building the vehicle, but on all the issues and challenges surrounding commuter aviation.
‘If you want to make a flying car it should be for everybody, but you can’t make every car driver into a pilot,’ [Dr. Bülthoff] said. ‘The idea is to fly in uncontrolled airspace without interfering with all the other aircraft.’
He said the plan is to make the flying vehicles so intelligent, they communicate with each other and avoid collisions without any human input.”
It is hard to believe that flying cars can be a reality in our lifetime, but with the advancement of technology and the will of people, it could happen.
