This proposal is based on drone technology and artificial intelligence (IA). It is an autonomous vehicle that follows 3D smart routes to minimize transportation time. It is electric in order to reduce emissions and it is also autonomous so that any person could use it without previous training. This feature also frees the users from the driving task so that they can carry out other duties while being transported. It is intended to be a low-cost alternative that anyone can use. Users are expected to define a route by using a mobile application. It also considers mechanical and audiovisual aids intended to help disabled people. It also has de aim of working without interfering with previously established aviation routes.

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

Everyone is a potential user of this vehicle.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

The team is: Electrical Engineer Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering M.S. in Computer Science M.S. in Chemistry B.S. in Actuarial Science B.S. in Telematics B.S. in Computational Systems Consultant

Size of your team or organization

  • 2-10

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Rough budget (500 characters)

The requested funding will be used for the construction of a working prototype consisting of the following subsystems, Electric System, Electronic System, Mechanic System, Telecommunication System, Security System, Navigation System, Telemetry System, Software

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

Once the prototype be built, in a testing phase we will validate different modules using tests in unmanned scenarios. Afterwards, manned tests will be carried out. We intend to invite investors to fund the idea so that Austin would become one of the first places with wide-spread use of this technology.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

In order to measure the success of the trial phase we will take into consideration the safe transportation of a person between two places in the city. We will compare travel time versus other options, as well as the creation and execution of intelligent routes . We will also evaluate the safety of people in flight and on the earth (in the flight route)

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

We plan to invite investors in order to create a mass product. These vehicles can be either sold or rented. Our goal is to make these vehicles as popular as cars, subway or aircrafts.
