欧洲空客的无人驾驶空中出租车

2019-04-15 00:41

并不是只有个人飞行科幻迷和创业公司才对飞车的开发感兴趣,欧洲多国政府合资的空客公司也加入了这一竞赛。该公司宣称正在开发一款没有飞行员的飞车作为未来的空中出租,它将是一个VTOL,但其曲线翼形在飞行时可以省油。空客声称将于今年发布可行试飞的原型机,期待这家大型飞机制造商能够真正起飞。
工程学是科学研究和经济效益的折中,一帮MIT或斯坦福毕业生们可以不顾成本地研发出造价超过百万美元的飞车,但成功试飞的兴奋过后就会为如何进入大众市场以实现其愿景而发愁。至于空客提出的空中出租车概念,即便开发出这种飞车,是否具有成本效益和真实的乘客还是一个大问题。如果你在等候一辆无人驾驶的飞车出租VTOL,我劝你还是不要屏住呼吸。先放松下来,预备足够的耐心等待吧。

德国联邦交通部部长安德烈亚斯·朔伊尔11日表示,将尽快为“空中出租车”在德国投入使用创造法律条件。欧洲空中客车公司当天发布首款“空中出租车”。这款名为“城市空客”的无人驾驶电动载客飞机使用垂直起降技术,拥有4个双旋翼,靠4块电池驱动,最多可搭载4人,飞行速度可达每小时120公里,将在未来城市中提供安全、环保的点对点个人出行服务。

It is not only the personal flight sci-fi fans and startups that are interested in the development of the speeding car. The Airbus company, a joint venture of European multinational governments, has also joined the competition. The company claims to be developing a pilot without a pilot for future air rentals, it will be a VTOL, but its curved airfoil can save fuel while flying. Airbus claims to be launching a prototype of a viable test flight this year, expecting the big aircraft manufacturer to take off.
Engineering is a compromise between scientific research and economic benefits. A group of MIT or Stanford graduates can develop a speeding machine that costs more than a million dollars regardless of cost, but the excitement of a successful test flight will be how to enter the mass market to achieve its The vision is worrying. As for the air taxi concept proposed by Airbus, even if such a speeding vehicle is developed, whether it is cost-effective and real passengers is still a big problem. If you are waiting for an unmanned car to rent VTOL, I advise you not to hold your breath. Relax first and wait for enough patience.

German Federal Minister of Communications Andreas 朔il said on the 11th that it will soon create legal conditions for the "air taxi" to be put into use in Germany. European Airbus released the first "air taxi" on the same day. The unmanned electric passenger plane, called Urban Airbus, uses vertical take-off and landing technology. It has four dual-rotors and is powered by four batteries. It can carry up to four people and can fly at speeds of up to 120 kilometers per hour. It will provide safe and environmentally friendly peer-to-peer personal travel services in future cities.
