ON earth and in heaven: a brand new automobile prepares a revolution
Embraer, a Brazilian aircraft manufacturer, showed off a concept called Pulse, designed to mark the 50th anniversary of its founding.since the topic of aircraft and passenger transportation could be very near Embraer, the concept seems like a bird.
The show car is an autonomous passenger capsule that can move both on the ground and in the air. There are no controls in the cabin, electronics are responsible for everything. Depending on the route, the system itself chooses which chassis to attach. for movement at the ground, a six-wheeled floor is supplied, inside the air – with vertical take-off/landing. Passengers just need to choose a destination and they can enjoy a pleasant “home” environment and views outside the window.
According to the authors, in 2070, a capsule on a wheeled chassis can become a common means of transportation. she will be able to take you to the airport, and then fly to the sky on her own wings. Upon arrival at the destination, everything will be repeated in the reverse order.
