Visiongain has launched a new aerospace and automotive report Top 20 Companies Developing Flying Car Technologies: Automotive & Aerospace Companies Developing On Demand Urban Air Mobility (UAM), Ridesharing Networks, Air Taxis, Vertical Take Off & Landing (VTOL), Electric Vertical Take Off & Landing (eVTOL), Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) & Autonomous Operation Technologies.
Investment in R&D for Flying Car technologies in 2019 is characterised by strong competition among the leading players. However, the investment of companies differs from each other indicating that all the players are engaging their financial and technological resources to be the first to develop a sustainable model of flying cars as early as possible to gain a competitive edge from the growth opportunity expected to be offered by the upcoming market. Although there is a strong competition among the top players, we observe strong competition among the smaller players. This demonstrates that flying car technologies is a highly dynamic segment for investment with strong competition between flying car technology developing companies.
The Visiongain report analyst commented "The VTOLs envisioned as serving within a ridesharing network (the aforementioned "air-taxis") will need to address four primary barriers to commercial feasibility: safety, noise, emissions, and vehicle performance. The two most important technologies to overcome these challenges are Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) and autonomous operation technologies. Several manufacturers have demonstrated concepts which showcase ways to use DEP technology in order to achieve different advantages (and penalties), depending whether the designer favours cruise efficiency, hover power required, vehicle control, design simplicity, payload, or vehicle cost."
Leading companies featured in the report who are developing flying car technologies are AeroMobil, Detroit Flying Cars, Kitty Hawk, Moller International, Neva Aerospace Ltd, Delorean Aerospace, LLC, Nirvana Systems Ltd (Nirvana Autogyro), PAL-V International BV, Vaylon SAS, Toyota Motor Corporation (Cartivator or SkyDrive Inc.), Uber Technologies Inc., Macro Industries, Inc., The Boeing Company, Airbus S.E, Audi AG, Amazon.com, Inc., Kalashnikov, Tesla, Inc., Terrafugia, and Lazzarini Design Studio.
