Perhaps, Google had to buy Terrafugia?
As we found out, probably, Google was crazy. Not so long ago, the search giant has acquired Boston-based Boston Dynamics , which manufactures military robots. Along with the rest of the acquisition will create an army of Andy Rubin industrious robots, which largely help the corporation. But what if Google had to buy a completely different company?
The company Terrafugia, which we recently wrote , plans to release a flying car in 2015. Slowly but surely, many invisible to the company realizes the dream of decades – cars that do not need solid ground. Of course, buying Boston Dynamics has great meaning in the activities of Google, and the scope of robotics today is innovative as ever. Nevertheless, the company Terrafugia Google also has his eye.
Terrafugia The garage is already quite working plane called Transition with folding wings and the ability to ride it on the streets. The bottom line is that pilots can send the car home, instead of looking for a suitable hangar somewhere near the workplace.
Easy to guess that Terrafugia under Karl Dietrich plans to release a safe flying car for the mass market. As recently told Dietrich, their goal is not only to bring to market a flying car, but also to give him something in that Larry Page and Sergey Brin can fall in love at first sight. It is also working on what Google, and what we call “self-guided vehicle.”
Dietrich explained that today many aircraft equipped with sophisticated autopilot system. About the same system will work flying cars Terrafugia. The company hopes to create a vehicle that will not require formal training pilots. They can simply push a button and the computer will lead TF-X.
All that is required from the driver – to lay the destination computer in transport, as he himself finds the best route to the location. Congestion, wind speed and other important factors play a role in the safe operation of the vehicle, but that’s what will count system, and therefore special training pilots are not required.
It is worth noting that to date, TF-X is only a prototype, but the company expects to release it to the market in 2015. About the prices, of course, no one knows.
