Flying cars are coming, and they’ll be autonomous
Advances appear to be on the horizon for what is being called urban aerial mobility technology — what some might also call flying cars and taxis. Fulton Schools Associate Professor Daniel Bliss is working on designs for navigation and positioning systems for these self-driving automobiles/aircraft. Bliss says the success of such vehicles will require a fusion of multiple technologies, including sensors, scanning lasers, and sophisticated ground-positioning systems and antennae systems.
