Uber was first founded in 2009 by Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick with the name UberCab. At that time Garrett Camp travel to his friends home for New Year eve and he hire a private car and spent $800 for travelling then he was trying to figure out that he should make the services that is more affordable for everyone or for the average person.
First employee of UBERCAB comes from twitter he tweets on Travis Kalanick and his name is Ryan Graves, he is also become the General Manager of a company and given 5-10% of the company. Soon after he was become the CEO of company.
In 2010 company name is still UberCab and after that its name becomes UBER. Uber logo has changed 3-4 times and now in Sept2018 the UBER new logo is finally revelled.
Now UBER want to bring fly taxies in five countries include Japan, India, Australia, Brazil and France. Uber announces that in America Los Angeles and Dallas will be the first cities where in 2020 Uber will do fly taxi demo. The cities and countries list includes Japan and the cities of Tokyo and Osaka; in India with Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai: Melbourne or Sydney in Australia; In Brazil Rio de Janeiro and Paris, France, Where Advance Technologies Centres announced by Uber to study and develop flying cars. As expected by 2023 flight offered to the commercial fliers. Uber is also looking for third international city to partner with.
There is an expo in Japan where Uber presented potential flight path for cities that how it is looking when you ordered short plane ride through an app.
Preference is more in high density metro area more than 2 Million people so that pooled fligh make sense. Uber also wants “polycentric” regions (Superstructure of good urbanism) (urban areas made up of multiple cities). Uber can also work on the cities where Uber used mostly. Uber also give presentation on their services and shows that their fly planes will fly low to keep the airspace free and also have low noice.
In the Uber Elevate Summit Project UberAir a flight sharing network with electric vertical take-off and landing (e-VTOLs) aircraft. The electric plan goes 60 miles on a charge and this is expected to cruise at about 150 mph and reach about 2,000 feet. That is so woeful speed by UberAir flight this means commercial fliers can easily makes miles travelling easily and this UberAir is about to launch in 2023 and in 2020 in America fly taxi demo will be held. So as expected after one year we may see a successful launching of UberAir. Uber is partnering with some companies like Karem, Bell, Aurora Flight Sciences, Pipistrel Aircraft and Karem Embraer to build and maintain its craft and that can fly 60 miles at an altitude of about 1,000 feet at a single battery charge.
Uber basically want to launch their uberPoll shared service in the sky also that’s agraet services by any cab service provider and Uber also knows that in launching UberAir , Uber will lose much money. Khosrowshahi called this is the “real challenge,” for Uber and its partners to launch UberAir.
After seeing six final designs for UberAir’s skyports made up by architecture firms shows how fantastic and beyond the imagination, even if the team is working with the Federal Aviation Administration and NASA. But these changes in the cities will not happen overnight and Uber aims and plan to launch soon by 2023.
FLYING UBER TAXI WILL BECOME REALITY
The first successful test flight of Boeing’s autonomous passenger air vehicle (PAV), the battery powered aircraft is 30 feet long and 28 feet wide and it looks like a giant drone. Pilotless air taxis seems that it becoming reality soon after complete first successful its first test flight of a passenger air vehicle, it sounds really interesting passenger air vehicle and by 2023 through Uber and its partners make this possible. In 2017 manufacturing acquired Aurora Flight Sciences which working with Uber to create airborne ride-sharing network. The battery has a range of about 50 miles. Boeing, along with rival Bell a maker of Helicopters is now partnering with Uber to soon develop PAVs for future services. PAVs also develop Airbus and the German start-up Volocopter. But for the launching UberAir they need for Federal Aviation Administration approval may push the debut further out.
Experts also believe that according to traffic India is also a prefect country to elevate this. China or several southeast nations will expel from positions and they believe that India is the biggest market after US. In Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore these cities having much traffic in India, and due to traffic congestion costs Rs.1.5 Lakh Crore ($21 billion) each year.
Now Uber going to make the reality through UberAir now we can see taxis in air also, now all are waiting for this big launching and this is expected that 2023 will be the huge year for new technology and after the successful demo now Uber and its partners are sure that this launching will boom this year and traffic is also less through this and the air taxis launched with low noise pollution, and traveling area in a miles will be covered in minutes now all have eyes on the fares but this dream becomes reality that now taxis is fly in the sky’s.
