Remember the crazy people-carrying drone, reminiscent of the Jetsons' flying car?
Revealed earlier this year, the Ehang 184 is a drone large enough to carry people that is more like a flying driverless car.
Now, the Chinese firm behind the potentially stomach-churning (but equally revolutionary) vehicle has partnered with the state of Nevada to begin testing the technology in the state, home to Las Vegas.
Ehang founder Huazhi Hu said the deal was a "big step" for the firm, which first showcased its plans at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, adding that it would lay the foundation for commercialising the vehicle and "building up the aerial transportation ecosystem in the future".
"The State of Nevada, through the Nevada Institute of Autonomous Systems (NIAS), will help guide Ehang through the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) regulatory process with the ultimate goal of achieving safe flight,” said Tom Wilczek of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED).
The state of Nevada is one of a handful of locations across the US where drone technology testing is sanctioned.
