Blockchain Meets Drone Vehicle at the Future Cities Show

The world of individual, collective and sustainable mobility is challenged colosally in urban areas. With rapid city growth more people are crowding into small areas, so conventional mobility concepts and local public transportation are reaching the limit of their capability. Traffic cramming and the consequent high levels of air pollution are the result, which in turn leads to corrosion of the quality of life.

Looking to address these challenges, the second edition of the Future Cities Show, a remarkable event on smart cities and innovative urban mobility solutions which will take place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 9-11 April 2018 features the solution that will shortly form part of our everyday urban transformation around the world.

While flying cars may sound like science fiction, technological innovations have brought in closer to reality – potentially helping to create a feasible solution.

Explore and experience the future of mobility

One of the main innovations that will appear in the Future Cities Show is VIMANA Global headquartered in Redwood city, California. VIMANA Global’s innovation reaches far beyond the conventional passenger drone context. VIMANA Global has incorporated the crypto-facts and Blockchain, to ensure decentralised and continuous management of autonomous drone taxi routes in smart cities around the world.

Since seamless integration is a necessity for the future of mobility, the VIMANA aerospace engineering team is developing a one and four-seater autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV). The aerial vehicle is designed to take-off vertically with four passengers, propelled by an on-board hybrid electrical power unit. After it safely clears neighbouring buildings, its tandem wings get tilted with eight thrusting propellers to continue flight like conventional airplane for more than 90 km.

One of the first demonstrations of the VIMANA’s unmanned aerial vehicles and Blockchain Airspace Ecosystem in the Middle East will occur during the Future Cities Show, where VIMANA is participating alongwith more than 70 other companies working on unmatched solutions for a better future.

The Future Cities Show is an annual gathering public, private and non-profit, academic institutions coming together to challenge assumptions, develop skills, share best practices, and build partnerships that drive innovation for a better future. In the wake of Dubai’s Expo 2020 win the emirate announced its smart city project with the aim to be one of the world’s most connected and sustainable cities.

The project will use the Internet of Things, in other words increased communication and intelligent connection with machines, people and data, to develop smart infrastructure across life, society, mobikmob, environment and economy. Dubai is committed to offering ease of communication, and with that in mind, free Wi-Fi zones have been setup in key locations including shopping malls, government buildings and even the beach.
