One of the biggest revelations at CES 2016 is easily Ehang’s Ehang184, a one-seater drone that is intended to be used as a personal transport. That’s right, it’s like a massive air taxi.
In fact, the entirely autonomous aerial vehicle has four arms that hold two propellers each. The 500 pound quadcopter is able to transport up to a 220 pound person at up to 62 mph. With this unique drone, a person can get inside, choose their destination using an on-board app, and then they’re off — that’s it. No pilot license required. It’s entirely electric, so there’s no need for gas or oil. The aircraft uses a fail safe system so that if any components malfunction at all or disconnect, the aircraft will immediately land in the nearest possible area to ensure the safety of the passenger. It has one button take-off and landing, as well as a hover button. Your move, DJI. [Purchase]
