Traffic congestion costs an estimated $99 billion worth of lost productivity each year and has been linked to numerous health issues and air pollution in our cities. Zaphod (zay-fod) is working on alternative autonomous solutions to reduce congestion, cut pollution and improve mobility. Autonomous road and air travel will be a crucial part in the future of transportation in our towns and cities.
Utilizing the airspace above our towns and cities allows us to bypass the clogged roads and highways below. Zaphod is working on a pilotless electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi that can safely hover, take off and land vertically without the associated noise levels of conventional aircraft.
Perfection in motion
The perfect complement to Zaphod's air taxi is our electric robotaxi. This driverless vehicle will effortlessly take passengers to and from their local air taxi hub, called a Skyport, so that they can continue their journey flying above the congested streets below. Zaphod's team is working on a fully safe autonomous level 4/5 electric vehicle.
