Post Drone Taxi
Iteresting article today showing Drone Taxi technology..

Apparently Chines Ehang are ahead and have a protype that has already carried passengers and are near to a contract with Dubai. Controlled by central surveillance. Capable of 300m altitude and 130 km/hr and to fly in fog ...Potential usage packages, air ambulance, access to disabled clients etc ...

Airbus are already in the race but not as advanced as Ehang, Uber (with Nasa) in the race, also Boeing and German Co Volocopter ...

Exciting technology but some sinister aspects potential ??

the article in french with pic (Ehang version)...but synopsis above ..

Any comments from the experts on here .. Mark et al ..

We're (society) going to have to plan for and come to terms with drones being used by criminals, psychos and terrorists. We're inevitably looking at further curbs in personal freedoms and privacy.
