What would happen if the flying car met with an accident? NASA has tested its eVTOL by throwing it from 15 meters

NASA is looking for ways to make its new flying electric vehicles safer.

The EVTOL was launched from a distance of 15 meters at the Landing and Impact Research Facility in Virginia. NASA Image.

flying cars have always been an exciting technological horizon, Today there are already some models of powered vehicles that have managed to demonstrate their effectiveness, but we are still far from seeing the first electric car on the market ability to land and fly,

Although somewhat distant from the automotive world, NASA is investing Construction of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehiclesAlso known as EVTOL.

This project is still in the early stages of development, and Looks more like a Mibee rocket than a car, These mini capsules are born from the idea of reduce costs It will be a massive launch, and it is a technology that could be very useful to India flying vehicle design horizontal movement. NASA recently tested what would happen if one of these capsules have an accident and falls to the ground at a great height, and recorded a video for Document and display your results,

To simulate a crash, the space agency put test dummy in an EVTOL and dropped on the ground from a height of 15 meters, The test was conducted in a controlled environment within the facilities landing and impact check at Langley Research Center (Virginia). The model that was tested had the ability to transport six peopleequipped with multiple rotors and is surrounded by cameras to record all the damage resulting from the impact.

The damage is still too great to guarantee the safety of the passengers.

NASA tested the efficiency of the capsule of effects, In the first, the seat cushions managed to mitigate the consequences of the impact, which led to a light damage on the test dummy. In the second test, the roof collapsed due to the impact, and the result for the dummy they were more serious, Nasa comes up with interesting figures after assessing the damage to the bodywork will act to mold the aerodynamics of the capsule To keep the passengers safe in the event of an accident.

NASA’s EVOTL isn’t a flying car, but it’s interesting to watch How can the entire industry change? The automotive world will reach those levels in the future. A head-on crash is not the same as a vertical fall to the ground, so it has to be completely reversed. the way we make cars, The idea of ​​flying cars is a road safety nightmare and something that would be extremely difficult to control. Technology and legislation are the main stumbling blocks for this industry to flourish, and the first one will soon close.
