“Audi, Airbus and Italdesign are presenting for the first time a flying and driving prototype car called Pop.Up Next.” This is an idea of a flying taxi which combines a self driving electric car with a flying drone. This concept is still in the scale model stage but could possibly be set to fly within the next decade.
Availability and service would be next level and Audi customers would be able to drive and fly through large cities, with options of working and relaxing all at once.
Audi board member stated that “More and more people are moving to cities. And more and more people will be mobile thanks to automation. In future senior citizens, children, and people without a driver’s license will want to use convenient robot taxis. If we succeed in making a smart allocation of traffic between roads and airspace, people and cities can benefit in equal measure.”
