The secret company Kitty Hawk, financed by Google co-founder Larry Page, for designing autonomous flying taxis has surfaced its battery operated autonomous flying taxi “CORA”. Cora being battery operated there are a lot of precautions taken in its working functionality like the plane has three independent flight-computers and can navigate even if one goes down. Similarly, each rotor works independently, and just in case things go wrong the plane has a parachute for landing without its fans. It is designed for two passengers and operates between 500 ft to 3000 ft above the ground. With speed of 110 miles per hour, this aerial-taxi can be a great way to skip ground traffic and reach the destination. Especially, event organisers would be seriously thinking to in-house one of them for speedy and better. Commute during event’s rush-hour. This plane can land like a helicopter. This taxi is ready for commercial use but besides UBER and BMW their version the big challenge for Google is that a path to certifying an air taxi for everyday use just didn’t exist yet.
