The Chinese firm Ehang was at CES 2016 in Las Vegas and plans to build the Ehang 184, a personal quadcopter that carries a person. Just one person, but that’s a lot more than a “drone,” which is called that because it carries no person.
While it’s currently just on the drawing board as Ehang are still in early phases of the development process, the Ehang 184 would be an extremely capable small, personal aircraft. Ehang are calling it “the sagest, eco-est, and smartest low altitude autonomous aerial vehicle”. The one-seater drone would be able to carry a person up to 220lbs for a short distance within the area. They say that it would be able to hit speeds of 62 mph in the air, have a ceiling of 1,640-feet, and would be able to stay airborne for 23 minutes.
The real question is: where will this be "street legal," so to speak. Read more about the Ehang 184 and see more picture at Worthly.
