Our Take on the Vimana AAV


Vimana is proposing not only to design and build an autonomous vehicle - they're also proposing to integrate it with blockchain technology. The company plans on using its own blockchain network to compete with the likes of UberAIR instead of attempting to integrate with that system. A full-scale mockup of the Vimana was on display at the Davos World Economic Forum in January of 2018, but the company has not stated when they estimate the first test flights will be. Stay tuned for more updates.
