Your daily commute could become faster, quieter and more airy if you plan for a new flying car inspired by bird's wings.

When trying to succeed where early pioneers such as Wright Brothers failed, experts are working on a design that derives from the most evolved form of flight on earth: fluttering.

In nature, the flutter consists of a pitching and stirring motion, which is mechanically complex and would add considerable weight and complexity to any design.

A company has simplified this process to design a transportation system that can take off and land anywhere.

The design firm Volerian recently introduced its concept of a vertical takeoff and landing vehicle (VTOL) at the recent Farnborough International Airshow 2018.

Volerian says that his propulsion system can be used in most situations where a propeller or fan will normally be used.

This applies to conventional propulsion as well as to VTOL and large and small aircraft.

In addition, the system can be used for domestic and industrial fan applications and may have uses for water-based propulsion.

In a written statement, a spokesman for the company said: "Volerian has created a propulsion system that is cheap to manufacture and is much quieter and safer than any fan or propeller technology.

"As a result of this, we can now manufacture aircraft that can be used in any situation where a car can be used and much more."

HOW DOES THE STEERING WHEEL WORK?

Trying to succeed where the first pioneers such as Wright Brothers failed, the Volerian design firm is working on a design that derives from the most evolved form of flight on earth: the flutter.

In nature, the flutter consists of a pitching and stirring motion, which is mechanically complex and would add considerable weight and complexity to any design.

By placing the flapping wing near a specially shaped wall, in the form of a conduit, the level of thrust can be increased efficiently without the need for greater amplitude, says the firm.

This would require an additional lifting movement or an increase in the flutter frequency.

The separation of the flaps by the walls of the duct allows to alter the frequency of flutter independently of adjacent sets of wings.

This avoids random fluctuations in the thrust that would otherwise occur, due to the extent to which the adjacent fins flap against each other or not.

Frequency changes can be used to control the aircraft and to help maintain efficient cruising conditions.

The base of the Volerian propulsion system is an oscillating wing in a specially shaped duct. A stator wing is downstream to further increase efficiency.

The wing flapping action creates a current of thrust producing vortices known as a Kármán reverse vortex street.

The wings with conduits are constructed in a matrix that provides the necessary area for thrust and control.

The matrix has a high ratio of lifting surface to thrust area that reduces energy over a given wing length, which increases safety and reduces engineering requirements and noise.

Theoretically, any wing length can be used, with the help of additional bearings.

A matrix can be adapted to different flight requirements, for example, a large, very quiet thrust zone with good short-range qualities or a smaller thrust area for a faster and longer range with the ability to take off conventionally (printing of the artist)

The movement of the wing is usually controlled by a cam connected to three wings to keep the load of the motor constant. Aircraft that use a large variety can simply change the engine speed for control.

A set aligned with the direction of the flight allows air to flow through the conduits. This avoids the flow separation problems that occur with conventional duct fans.

All moving parts are still safely located inside the ducts. In the case of a descent without power, the action of wing flapping, caused by the air flowing through the ducts, will create resistance and make the whole act as a parachute (impression of the artist)

The pressure changes along the wing are constant, unlike a propeller blade that changes as the angular velocity increases towards the tip of the blade, so there are fewer three-dimensional effects on the wing tips (impression of the wing). artist)

This means that the energy is more dispersed, which is beneficial for noise and efficiency. The end plates can also be used to further reduce the effect of the tip vortices of the wings.

Rotating paddles help adapt the matrix for a faster and more efficient cruise and for control purposes. In this case, they also disconnect the air flow from the cabin, which helps reduce cab noise.

The bars that connect the matrix also act as wings to take part of the load during the flight.

A faster and more efficient cruise can be achieved using a deviated thrust system. This gives the aircraft excellent short-range take-off and landing capabilities, as well as VTOL.

The flaps are completely submerged in the jet, which prevents blocking, which allows a very high lifting coefficient and avoids control problems derived from the separate flow.

Aircraft that use this system can take full advantage of the high propulsion efficiency of the swing wings.

The geometry was optimized using computer models.

WHAT KIND OF FLIGHT TAXES COULD WE EXPECT TO SEE IN THE FUTURE?

The advances in electric motors, battery technology and autonomous software have triggered an explosion in the field of electric aerial taxis.

Larry Page, CEO of Google's parent company, Alphabet, has invested millions in the new aviation companies Zee Aero and Kitty Hawk, which strive to create fully electric cabins.

It is believed that Kitty Hawk is developing a flying car and has already filed more than a dozen different aircraft records with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Page, who co-founded Google with Sergey Brin in 1998, has personally invested $ 100 million (£ 70 million) in the two companies, which have not yet publicly recognized or demonstrated their technology.

The reserved initiative Joby Aviation has come a step closer to making its flying taxi a reality.

The California-based company, which is building an all-electric flying taxi capable of taking off vertically, has received $ 100 million (£ 70 million) in funds from a group of investors led by Toyota and Intel.

The money will be used to develop the & # 39; megadrona & # 39; of the company, which can reach speeds of 200 mph (321 kph) powered by manganese oxide and nickel-lithium cobalt batteries.

The Joby S2 prototype has 16 electric propellers, 12 of which are designed for vertical take-off and landing (VTOL), which means no track is needed.

AirSpaceX presented its latest prototype, Mobi-One, at the North American International Auto Show in early 2018. Like its closest rivals, the electric plane is designed to carry two to four passengers and is capable of taking off and land vertically

The plane takes off vertically, like a helicopter, before folding 12 of its propellers so that it can glide like a plane once it is in the air.

Airbus is also working hard on a similar idea, with its latest prototype of the Vahana Project, the Alpha One brand, which successfully completed its first test flight in February 2018.

The self-guided helicopter reached a height of 16 feet (five meters) before successfully returning to the ground. In total, the test flight lasted 53 seconds.

Airbus previously shared a well-produced conceptual video, showing its vision for the Vahana Project.

The footage reveals an elegant aircraft that flies by itself and that accommodates a passenger under a canopy that retracts similarly to a motorcycle helmet visor.

Like Joby Aviation, the Vahana Project is designed to be fully electric and take off and land vertically.

AirSpaceX is another company with the ambition to take travelers to the skies.

The Detroit-based start-up promised to deploy 2,500 aircraft in the 50 largest cities in the United States by 2026.

AirSpaceX presented its latest prototype, Mobi-One, at the North American International Auto Show in early 2018.

Like its closest rivals, the electric plane is designed to carry two to four passengers and is capable of taking off and landing in an upright position.

AirSpaceX has even included broadband connectivity for high-speed Internet access, so you can check your Facebook news source while you fly to work.

In addition to passenger and cargo services, AirSpaceX says that the vessel can also be used for medical and injury evacuation, as well as tactical Intelligence, Surveillance and Acknowledgment (ISR).

Even Uber is working to make their transportation service in the air.

Nicknamed Uber Elevate, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi tentatively discussed the company's plans during a technology conference in January 2018.

"I think it's going to happen within the next 10 years," he said.
