Watch: BMW Made the World’s First Electrified Wingsuit. It Reached 186 MPH on Its First Flight

Posted by in category: transportation

After three years of intensive research and countless test flights in BMW’s horizontal wind tunnel, Salzmann and the wingsuit completed the maiden flight over the picturesque mountains of Austria last week. The 33-year-old was dropped by helicopter at just shy of 10,000 feet alongside two other fliers sporting conventional wingsuits. BMW says the electric wingsuit enabled Salzmann to accelerate faster than his mates at a peak speed of 186 mph. (Normal wingsuit operators typically reach horizontal speeds around 62 mph.)

The e-wingsuit is built upon BMW i EV technology and powered by a chest-mounted rig. It offers 15 kW of grunt that’s split between two 7.5 kW carbon impellers. The impellers spin at a speed of 25,000 rpm and produce thrust for up to five minutes. The aim of the electric wingsuit is to increase performance and eventually allow for longer distances to be covered.

How an AI-powered system helps Abu Dhabi rank among the safest cities in the world

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Through the integrated use of sensors, closed-circuit television network, automatic licence plate readers and facial recognition software, all of which feed data into a central control room, the Safe City project helps authorities predict incidents and take preemptive action against crime or violence, said Dr Major Ahmed Al Shamsi, head of Safe City Project at Abu Dhabi Police.

“The project was launched three years ago and currently covers 85 per cent of the emirate’s infrastructure. It has helped reduce traffic incidents and fatalities, patrol areas more efficiently and take action to prevent untoward occurrences,” he told Gulf News on the sidelines of the Abu Dhabi Smart City Summit.

The two-day summit is seeing the attendance of 400 experts, with the focus on the technological advances and innovations that are improving the quality of life in the UAE capital. Organised by Abu Dhabi emirate’s municipalities sector regulator, the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), the Summit has already seen the launch of driverless taxis on Yas Island, as well as the signing of other agreements with technology developers like Huawei, Bayanat and G42.

EdisonFuture EF1-T Aims for the Cybertruck

Posted by in categories: futurism, transportation

Yet another EV start-up has plans for an electric truck, and this one has a few things in common with the Cybertruck. Here’s what it plans to offer.


The Cybertruck won’t be out for another year at the earliest, but it keeps inviting fresh competition from EV start-ups and established automakers alike. The latest such hopeful arrived at the LA auto show a few days ago, featuring styling that could be described as a smoothed-out Cybertruck.

The latest contender concept hails from EdisonFuture, not to be confused with Faraday Future, and like Tesla it is once again named after a 19th century electrical pioneer. (Yes, most of the names of 19th century electrical innovators are already taken by EV start-ups).

How NASA Technology Is Improving Air Travel

Posted by in categories: energy, transportation

NASA’s aircraft flight scheduling technology will start rolling out in 2023 to better coordinate aircraft movements at airports across the United States. It follows almost four years of research and testing by NASA and the FAA.

NASA’s surface metering technology is being integrated into the FAA’s airport surface management technology called the Terminal Flight Data Manager (TFDM) that will get implemented at 27 airports around the US.

The platform aims to improve efficiency, shift departure wait times from the taxiway to the gate, save fuel, reduce emissions, and give airlines and passengers more flexibility in the period before leaving the gate.
