Audi, Italdesign & Airbus Unite for Passenger Drone & Self-Driving Car
The Pop.Up flying car from last year makes a return.
The Airbus Group alongside Italdesign and automaker Audi have presented the follow up to their Pop.Up Car at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Entitled the Pop.Up Next, this fully automatic electric concept utilizes a 49-inch screen with a touch function, eye tracking, and speech and facial recognition tech to function. The ultra-light, two-seater passenger cabin can be attached either to a car module or to a flight module.
The team behind the project hopes to use the vehicle to open mobility in cities, where people can traverse the road and the air, thus solving ongoing traffic issues in urban areas. Jörg Astalosch, CEO of Italdesign, says: “Various players will define the rules of urban mobility in the future. We are proud to collaborate with Airbus, the leading company in the aerospace industry, to investigate solutions for future mobility.” Observe the gallery above and check out everything else coming out of the Geneva Motor Show this year.
