Vimana to exhibit 'flying taxi' prototype in Dubai

DUBAI, April 5, 2018

US-based Vimana Global will demonstrate its unmanned aerial vehicles and Blockchain Airspace Ecosystem during the upcoming Future Cities Show, a major event on smart cities and innovative urban mobility solutions, in Dubai, UAE.

The second edition of the event will take place at Dubai WTC from April 9-11 and will feature the solutions that will shortly form part of our everyday urban transformation around the World.

The Vimana aerospace engineering team is developing a one and four-seater autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV). The aerial vehicle is designed to take-off vertically with four passengers, propelled by an on-board hybrid electrical power unit. After it safely clears neighbouring buildings, its tandem wings get tilted with eight thrusting propellers to continue flight like conventional airplane for more than 90 km.

“Vimana Global is solving a key urban air mobility, that of extending the Blockchain into the air, and delivering the technology that enables unmanned flights to launch and fly safely in any national airspace,” said Evgeni Borisov, founder and CEO, Vimana Global.

Dawood Al Shezawi, chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Future Cities Show, said: “The testing and introduction of robots, drones and flying cars indicate one thing – the future has arrived. We will see unprecedented changes, disruptions and challenges as well as innovative solutions emerging that will create a completely new urban environment where technologies will dictate our life, work and activities.” – TradeArabia News Service
