Toyota cars of the Future 2020 ” Ready To take Flight”
“if you can’t walk through it, you can run around it but if not fly over it”
Toyota has its sights set on a Blade Runner future as the Japanese automaker backs a move to lunch flying automobile in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The organization is giving around 42.5 million yen ($375,000) to the Cartivator project, which is building up the three-wheeled science fiction auto that depends on automaton innovation to take off. This manned vehicle, named SkyDrive, will have four arrangements of propellors and – at 2.9 meters (9.5 foot) long and 1.3 meters wide – is planning to be the world’s latest and smallest flying auto, according to the project.
A promotional video graphic shows the little car lowering its retractable wings before zipping off for a flight around Tokyo and then lighting the flame at the Olympic stadium. This auto is expected to have a top flight speed of around 100 kilometers (62 miles) 60 minutes, floating somewhere in the range of 10 meters off the ground. It will have a top land speed around 150 kilometers 60 minutes.
A group of young specialists from the auto and aviation ventures working on the project, which is being subsidized by various financial specialists including Toyota auxiliaries.
The group is hoping to launch a manned prototype by the end of next year so it can be used to light the Olympic flame when Japan’s capital hosts the Games. Other firms, including ride-sharing service Uber and a Silicon Valley startup reportedly backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, are moving to put in place a system of flying cars to move people around cities.
Fingers crossed as we await the new “flying automobile from Toyota”, indeed the Japanese auto manufacturer is leading a major revolution in science as they set paves way to overcome traffic huddles around the world.
