EmbraerX unveiled a new electric flying vehicle
concept during Uber Elevate Summit 2019 in Washington, D.C.
The aircraft concept, with electric vertical
take-off and landing capability, known as eVTOL, is part of the
EmbraerX multi-project approach.
Antonio Campello, President & CEO, EmbraerX,
said, “As a market accelerator committed to developing
solutions to transform life’s experiences, we have been combining
human-centered design thinking with our 50-year history of
building and engineering expertise in a unique manner. These are
the factors behind the technical progress and leading-edge
innovations we are bringing to this new eVTOL concept.”
EmbraerX’s human-centric approach has been
instrumental in the eVTOL project, focused on user experience and
passenger peace of mind, with the goal of making the aircraft
easily accessible to every person.
This new aircraft concept results from a broad
range of tests and simulations, aiming at operational optimization
for the urban environment, considering high reliability, low
operating costs, a lower noise footprint, fully electric powered
and progressively autonomous.
“Embraer's team focused on the customer
experience with their latest vehicle concept, using built-in
redundant systems to achieve optimal safety, while also achieving
low noise output with an eight rotor system, which enables
span-wise lift. Our team looks forward to continued collaboration
with the Embraer team to achieve a quiet, green, and safe, aerial
ridesharing vehicle,” said Mark Moore, Engineering Director of
