The volume of the transportation market is self-evident. Moreover, urban traffic congestion has become the biggest pain point in today's social development. Many cities, such as Singapore, London, and Stockholm, have begun to charge “congestion fees” for vehicles in the city center during peak hours. It can be seen that the pain point is the business opportunity.
A set of practical "blocking solutions" will undoubtedly create a brand new giant industry, which is gradually becoming a popular hotspot. Yihang is also looking at this blue ocean and is fully committed to the development of the "urban air traffic network."
At the end of 2016, the hot Tesla CEO Elon Musk released a tweet. "The traffic situation is too bad now, it is crazy. I plan to build a 'boring' tunneling machine and start Digging the tunnel..."
Even if Elon Musk was a crazy dreamer in the public impression, there are still many fans who doubt whether his Twitter is stolen. Until Elon Musk updated his Twitter resume: "Tesla, SpaceX, Tunnel (yes, tunnel), and OpenAI."
The world's first pure electric manned self-driving aircraft, Yihang 184, unveiled at the 2016 US CES Exhibition
In fact, at the beginning of 2016, Yihang released the world's first pure-power, vertical take-off and landing manned self-driving aircraft at the CES show in the United States. The goal is to provide a new way to travel and ease the pressure of traffic congestion. At the same time, two German start-ups Volocopter and Lilium also released similar "air taxi" prototypes. In addition, NASA, Boeing, Airbus, Uber, Google and other giants also have actions, or set up their own labs, or directly invest in a start-up.
Earlier, self-driving cars were considered to be more promising. The giants such as Google, General Motors, and Uber had early layouts. China also had startups like Xiaopeng.
So which one is the correct answer from heaven to earth?
