In less than a decade, the taxi giant Uber has successfully changed the taxi industry. The company is testing Pittsburgh's autopilot technology and is well on its way to becoming the world's most valuable start-up.
And now, Uber even promised to provide consumers with a "flying taxi" service in the future.
Uber recently released a 99-page white paper that showed that "air short-range commuter systems will be available in less than 10 years." Uber predicts that future commuters can board small aircraft, take off vertically, and reach their destinations in minutes, and such small aircraft can even achieve unmanned driving.
At the same time, Uber will launch in 10 years, called "Elevate" on-demand all-electric aircraft network. With the network, passengers will no longer have the trouble of traffic jams, from San Francisco to Silicon Valley is also only about 15 minutes, the price is equivalent to the ground UberX services.f
