Ehang 184 – Will this giant autonomous drone be the future of transportation?

2016-01-11 // gadget tech

Here is the Ehang 184, a giant autonomous drone capable of carrying a passenger! While camera drones are now widely democratized, Chinese company Ehang created this new vehicle taking full advantage of existing drones, starting with the ease of use. This concept of flying car with eight propellers will be able to transport a person for 23 minutes within a radius of 16 km.

To operate it, simply use the dedicated application for smartphone or tablet, for example to define the route and the destination, and the drone will do the rest thanks to its intelligent autopilot. It also has a top speed of 100 km/h and a maximum altitude of 3350 meters. Currently introduced at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, the Ehang 184 is expected to be available sometime in 2016, for a price between $ 200,000 and $ 300,000. Will this giant autonomous drone be the future of transportation?
