  • In Japan tested a flying car [VIDEO]

    While major automakers and startups are developing unmanned driving systems and electrifying classic four-wheelers, Japanese engineers are busy creating flying vehicles. The prototype of this unit has been successfully tested by NEC.

    During the tests, the flying car rose to a height of about three meters. The first flight lasted only one minute. In order to ensure safety, the test site was made in the form of a closed-cell. There was no pilot in the cockpit during the test.

    The NEC model of a UAV is equipped with four screws. The dimensions of the development are 3.9 x 3.7 x 1.3 meters with a weight of 150 kilograms. According to the company's engineers, in the future, they do not plan to develop the segment of passenger transportation.

    NEC's task is to provide Japanese cities with vehicles capable of delivering goods by 2023. The road map of the country provides for such development at the legislative level, and the introduction of unmanned civilian vehicles will be tentatively held in 2030. Mass production of such vehicles in 2026 will take over the partner NEC, the company Cartivator, has already managed to obtain permission for open flights from the government of Japan.

    For the development of the flying car industry in the country was created a specialized Fund Drone Fund, providing opportunities for development startups and young companies interested in the industry.
