Why We Don't Have Flying Cars, Yet

Please read before commenting. Predictive Innovation analysis of Flying Cars and the next natural big innovation for ground based cars. One of the biggest reasons we still don't have flying cars is the the least satisfied Outcome has been ignored. Car makers have focused on the wrong things, thus causing delays in progress. http://markproffitt.com/books/ http://www.predictiveinnovation.com/ The report and book this video is based on has been proven correct. Many of the predictions have already occurred but there are still important points to be learned from this analysis.

Directly from their website It is a roadable aircraft. The reason it isn't a flying car is it doesn't better satisfy the outcomes customers require from a car. It is too small. too expensive, too inconvenient, too dangerous for the average car driver to use the way they use a car. Additionally, all of the components that make the Terrafugia safer are technology that has been around on ground based cars for decades. The video was posted in 2010 and is based on a book published in 2009 which was based on an industry report presented in 2004. Self-driving cars have been on the roads for years. In 2011 Volvo XC60 with City Safe automatic braking sold 68% more cars in the USA than Chevy Volt, 12,932 units. Toyota has autopark http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqrlN8KFakI Subaru has EyeSight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MMhN9B1Jos Standford offers a 7 week undergraduate class teaching how to program a self-driving car CS-373, not even a senior level class. So everything occurred precisely as predicted. Safety ratios: The video clearly states cars have become safer in a crash. The video also points out there are millions of injuries in addition to deaths. And the bigger point is any accident causes damage to something. That is reducing the ability to make other improvements. There is only a loose connection between miles driven and the number of accidents. In fact the more miles a person drives the less likely they are to have an accident. Air bags and other ways of making crashes safer doesn't address the core problem, there are a lot of crashes. That is what needs to be fixed to get the big increases in safety cars need. Automation is the only way to do that and it also increases efficiency, speed, and comfort. Example: Road fatalities per 100,000 inhabitants per year Road fatalities per 100,000 motor vehicles Road fatalities per 1 billion vehicle-km Ireland 4.06 __ 7.44 __ 4.9 United Kingdom 3.59 __ 7 __ 5.7 Germany 4.5 __ 7.2 __ 7.2 Canada 9.2 __ 13 __ 8.2 USA 12.3 __ 15 __ 8.5 Austria 8.2 __12 __ 8.9 Even though the USA has a lot more deaths per car it is not much more per miles driven and the ratios are reversed for Ireland and UK. No strong correlations between miles and number of cars and fatalities. The main problem for safety in cars is a single point of failure, the human. Automation can easily have multiple layers of redundancy. Just 6 layers of rather poor technology that is only 80% reliable would have a total reliability of (1-0.80)^6 = 99.9936%. That is 6.4 per 100,000 more than 2 times as reliable as cars driven by humans in Canada, USA, and Austria. Any comment about population growth or claim that Terrefugia is a flying car will be deleted because it ignored the facts and misses the point. Please don't waste people's time. Any insults (even if you also have a good point) will be deleted. Be polite and logical.

The term "flying car" is often used to include roadable aircraft and hovercars. Many prototypes have been built since the first years of the twentieth century, but no flying car has yet reached production and sales status. Actually it’s pretty hard to make a vehicle that will perfectly work both on roads and in air without compromising comfort, performance, safety, versatility, ease of use and, most important, cost. However, some companies like Terrafugia have already lunched some prototypes (( Transition + TF-X )) so here are 06 Most EXTREME Flying Cars that actually fly: #01. Aeromobil 3.0 #02. PAL-V One #03. The Maverick #04. Vaylon Pegase #05. Terrafugia Transition #06. Terrafugia TF-X Thanks for watching - Enjoy! :)

UH 19XRW Hoverwing™ Ground Effect Hovercraft,
Universal Hovercraft is proud to offer the UH-19XRW Hoverwing™ ground-effect vehicle for industrial, commercial and military sales. It is available to our customers on a ready to run turnkey basis. The Hoverwing™, designed as a high performance hovercraft, is unique because of the ability to add wings for flight in ground-effect. Flying in ground-effect enables you to clear obstacles and fly over rough water at speeds in excess of 75 mph. Cruise altitude is 2 to 6 feet and the craft can jump up to 20 feet to clear large obstacles. Operating in ground-effect does not require a pilots license, and the craft is registered as a boat which brings a wide range of new opportunities to the commercial and tourism industry. Removing the wings from the Hoverwing™ takes just 10 minutes. With the wings removed the Hoverwing™ converts into Sport mode, a sleek high performance hovercraft, able to carry 4 to 6 passengers into areas that cant be reached with any other vehicle. The Hoverwing™ can be configured in many different ways to accommodate your passengers or equipment needs. Notice: the 19XRW Hoverwing™ is not yet available for recreational use. Commercial, industrial, rescue, and military inquires only.
