­Because of the imperfection of the autonomous systems, but more importantly, the unpredictability of human drivers, fully self-driving vehicles have been slow to deploy in larger numbers. But what about an arena – the sky – with no pedestrians and no other vehicles aside from low-flying planes? Take all that unpredictably out of the equation, and you have a much more attractive prospect – which is likely why autonomous air taxis have gained so much traction as of late. Here to discuss that is professor Naira Hovakimyan from the University of Illinois’ Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering department.
