Aircraft manufacturer Bell Helicopter has revealed the cabin for an electric, self-piloting air taxi at the Consumer Electronics Show, designed for Uber scheduled 2020 aircraft taxi service.
Bell unveiled the concept for the cabin this week, following Uber announcement that it will partner with NASA to develop a flying taxi service in Los Angeles in two years time. But the propulsion system remains a secret for now.
Able to accommodate up to four passengers, the electric, autonomous vehicle will be available on-demand, offering vertical takeoff and landing and is a cross between a traditional helicopter, a light aircraft and a passenger-carrying drone.
It boasts a host of connectivity technologies, including wifi, artificial intelligence, video calling, and wireless charging.
