First flying car races to be held in 2021
Airspeeder plans to organize the first ever electric flying car races with a vertical take-off and landing system in 2021.
The company’s management believes that nothing accelerates technical progress in the field of transport like sports competitions. To do this, the manufacturer began to cooperate with the company Acronis, which works in the field of cybersecurity and is responsible for collecting data on the performance characteristics of Formula 1..
The goal of the partnership is to develop digital solutions that will ensure the safety of air vehicles. In addition to lidar and vision systems, every racing «speeder» will receive a virtual force field that will surround him, preventing collisions with other participants.
The new solutions will also allow pilots to receive real-time data on battery health and other key indicators of onboard systems..
It is not excluded that in the near future we are expected to race on jet flying motorcycles, similar to the development of Jetpack Aviation, which develops speed over 240 km / h.
