The drone you can fly to work in

EHang, a Chinese unmanned aerial vehicle company, has unveiled its EHang 184 drone – the world’s first electric, personal Autonomous Aerial Vehicle (AAV).

The 184 drone is capable of flying a passenger to a destination entered into its accompanying mobile app.

Due to the 184’s fully automated navigation, passengers have no need for a pilot’s licence – they sit back and let the drone do the work.

Standing 1.5 meters tall and weighing 200kg, the 184 has a load capacity of 100kg.

It’s designed to carry a single passenger for 23 minutes at sea level, at average cruising speeds of 100 km/h.

The 184’s body consists of a cabin for a single passenger, a trunk, and the power system – composed of four arms and eight propellers.

The four arms can be folded upon landing, allowing the 184 to occupy a standard parking space, while the 184’s control console is tablet-based and placed inside the cabin.

Air conditioning and 4G connectivity also come standard.
