Despite of the fast-paced spread of COVID-19, which has caused economical loss in the majority of the countries, science enthusiasts still invest in futuristic innovations, standing one step closer to their dream. One of these dreams is to see flying electric car floating in the sky like a helicopter. Originally being the idea of Enzo Ferrari, it’s almost a reality thanks to the Australian Alauda, which has started programming the Airspeeder concept. Seems like, indeed, we’ll see flying cars not only in the movies, but from our windows too.
The company named Alauda is in stage where they are testing the innovative set up of Airspeeder’s functions. This technology somehow reminds of that found under the hood of Formula E. After the staff of the Australian company successfully tests it out, the approved technologies will be applied to other e-cars of different countries. The latter will enable to share their mindset, in order to let other manufacturers use and improve the coolest idea in motor-production so far. This is not going to be a simple futuristic cruiser, but rather is designed for in-air competitions of similar concepts. The tracking function will enable even to control it without having to sit in the salon of Airspeeder.
Airspeeder MK4 Flying Electric Car Characteristics
The flying electric car production will soon include another team of professionals, who are eminent in the world of motorsport and there will also be some talented debutants who will eagerly have their place in developing Airspeeder MK4 further. The concept now is in the final stage of modification and improvement, including the application of augmented reality for better location tracking.
The flying electric car, as we know from what the company has teased, includes 500kw accumulators of energy and 4 24kw engines that enable the model to reach a maximum speed of 124 miles per hour. The weight of the amazing futuristic flyer is 1/4 of a ton, which makes a better choice when compared to the performance to weight feature of Formula 1.
The manufacturer is sure, these type of cars will not only be for comfort but for entertainment too, as there are plans for heated competitions between different models of sky racers- just like how it is nowadays in the world of ground racing. Moreover, for the safety of not crashing into each other, the latest technologies of Machine Vision and LiDAR will be set into each of the concepts. The car parts which will be in the upcoming examples, will come from Germany, where DHL has taken up the job of supplying the Australian company located in Adelaide, South Australia.
The dates of the official release is yet unclear as everything depends on the results of testing the new MK4 Airspeeder, but the fans believe in the efforts that the Australian company has put into creation of the concept, and are too excited with further news from Alauda.
