Growing urbanisation and enormous budgeting on its infrastructure has always posed serious threats to global economies.

Therefore various efforts are being put to work to go around the issue by identifying alternatives.

Airbus, a giant civil aviation manufacturer, is trying to come up with a solution. The company has planned to test its designed self-piloted flying car later this year to identify and address the loopholes before they are introduced to roads.

The concept of flying car was hit by a division (subsidiary unit of Airbus group), called Air Mobility, in a series of such innovative ideas aimed at avoiding urban congestion through transporting individuals via flying vehicles.

Secondly, it would save economy a heavy expenditure on building bridges, roads and other infrastructure, which requires regular improvement. The skies instead is the best option.

It is also rumored that the vehicle will be propelled by various engines that might shape it as a drone. However, all these efforts need a reform in the existing regulations to allow driverless transportation to go up in the air.   

Now to avail the service, one would need to book its ride via app like it is normally done with other car services. It can carry multiple passengers.

The company has however not shared any further information about its design, shape and other specifications.

Tom Enders, Airbus Group CEO, mentioned at the DLD Conference, that a single flying vehicle will be demonstrated by the end of this year.

The company will ensure that this system runs pollution-free, which also makes it necessary that urban civilization is improved and cleanliness is ensured.

Airbus is effectively contributing to commercial aviation. Its new project of flying car would be a matchless hybrid of AI and self-driving mechanism.
