    Car-sized autonomous drone of the future

    Published on Jan 8, 2016

    EHang, a Chinese unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) company, unveiled at 2016 CES the EHang 184, the world's first electric, personal Autonomous Aerial Vehicle (AAV) that will achieve humanity's long-standing dream of easy, everyday flight for short-to-medium distances.

    The EHang 184, which was named for 'one' passenger, 'eight' propellers, and 'four' arms, is the next wave of innovation from EHang. Having already released a successful consumer product with their Ghost Drone line, EHang is now creating another disruptive and innovative technology to propel us towards the future of solo human transport.

    The 184 uses multiple independent flight control systems to automatically navigate passengers from point A to point B. These systems combine real-time data collected from sensors throughout the flight and automatically plot the fastest and safest route to carry passengers to their destinations.

    The EHang 184 AAV takes off and lands vertically, subsequently eliminating the need for runways. Its foldable design solves the logistical and spatial issues that have constrained airplanes and other modes of air-travel from expanding into daily use. Mass-adoption of the 184 has the potential to streamline congested traffic and dramatically reduce the kinds of accidents associated with any human-operated vehicle.
    It is 100 percent electric and doesn't depend on fossil fuels.

    Standing 1.5 meters tall and weighing 200 kilograms (440 pounds), the EHang 184 AAV has a load capacity of 100 kilograms (220 pounds), with the maximum output of 106W powered by eight motors. It's designed to have the capability to carry a single passenger for 23 minutes' duration flight at sea level at average cruising speed of 100 km/h.

    Inside the cabin is placed a single seat, with a design similar to an F1 racing car seat. In front of the seat is a tablet console, through which passengers can easily input commands. Additionally, the cabin's built-in air conditioner automatically adjusts the in-cabin temperature. Complete with 4G Wi-Fi Internet, EHang 184 provides passengers with comfortable and enjoyable riding experiences.

    Chinese Company Unveils World’s First Passenger Drone at CES 2016

    Published on Jan 8, 2016

    A Chinese company unveiled the world's first passenger-carrying drone at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

    The Ehang-184, a car-sized aircraft that weighs 220 kilograms, is powered by electricity and capable of carrying a 120-kg person for 23 minutes, according to its maker.

    "It is different from previous models of fixed-wing aircraft or single-rotor helicopters, as it is equipped with four arms and eight propellers, making it a multi-rotor aerial vehicle capable of carrying passengers," said Xiong Yifang, co-founder of the Guangzhou-based drone manufacturer Ehang.

    "A second special feature is its automatic piloting, so there is no need for our passengers to get a pilot's license," Xiong added.

    A passenger selects their flight destination on an onboard tablet inside the pod-like cockpit and then relaxes in the air-conditioned cabin as the vehicle takes off, flies, and lands on its own.

    "Hopefully in 2016, we will be able to have some commercial test flights, for instance, flying a short trip from one islet to another, or a fixed route in areas with poor transportation. We are looking forward to its full commercialization in the near future," Mr Xiong said.

    The Ehang 184 has a span of 5.5 meters when fully unfolded, and its maximum flying altitude is 3,500 meters.
