Hailing the Air Taxi: Secretive Joby Aviation's new electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft
"Tell us about your trip. Over fires I understand to to get to this. Secret Jobe test. Rain what you saw. Yeah thanks Joe will I've gotta say it was the story in terms of getting the story You briefly mentioned the the fire situation it all happened in the middle of the first big wave really of of wildfires out in California and my initial flights to the San Francisco Bay area, which is really where Jobe is based overall was through a dense clouds of smoke In both directions we had to wear face masks, of course, a part of the covert protocol but we ended up wearing three facemasks. He showed the flight back because otherwise we couldn't have we couldn't breathe in the smoke. So it was the the second flight that I took me onto their sort of undisclosed test area, which was even more interesting because that day. Having. Got To this location and then drove from for many miles into the secure facility came around the corner and they're hiding away. This valley was a small, very unusual looking hell not a helicopter, not not a fixed wing aircraft either this little like a strange hybrid between the two and that's that's the whole point about this new generation. It's something which we're still trying to really figure out as as well as the FAA I think what it is dealing with it, but it was fascinating experience. I showed up it was a really hot afternoon They basically were all poised waiting for me to get there since the dead they had the the vehicle on this little test area in the valley right in front of me a few hundred yards away they and that's the thing. The other thing about electric vehicles is you just turn them on. You know there's no sort of like. Slow. Wind up of a turbine or a piston foreing up it's just flick the switch and the lights come on you flick another switch and it lifts up into the into the air on a was what it was like the the sound which I couldn't wait to hear was so interested to know what it was going to be like eventually when the sun came to me, I was hoping. that it would be different than it was because I had expected something like one of those quad copters where you hear that sort. Of. Sound of the electric motors and ready sort of drums that sort of sound and but it didn't it was much low freak lower frequency sound very lower intensity. San Than expected. Vehicle took off and performed some maneuvers that are sort of relatively low altitude and the whole time I was standing beside. Justin Paints the chief test pilot and we were just chatting in a normal voice. Right it was right aside in beside us, it went off down the valley did some maneuvering. And? Transit didn't fully transitioned to wing bond fly because the valley area isn't that large. But it did become debt fatty fast as it maneuvered across in front of us and and landed and. that it was a remarkably quiet experience when the vehicle was down to the other end of the valley not too far away I mean just a few hundred yards You could hardly hear it above the background noise of of the of the INNOVA around the valley. So I think it would be effectively quite silent in an urban environment. They do say also that in forward in wing borne flight, it will also be effectively silent because The big thing about this design is it is it is a sensor they describe as a powered glider. It's like a like a motor glider really that can take off and land vertically. So it's just a very different way of looking at it. I think. It certainly looks very different. You know you think of a helicopter this has has more the wingspan of small aircraft. Yes exactly. Yeah. Incentive size. It's just a little bit short a wingspan than a embraer phenom one, hundred they they small business jared. An linked it's only just over twenty twenty, one feet body length of fears large with a little bit of overhang with the the the props at the back. But essentially, it's a very small package a footprint that's really designed to essentially go where helicopter like an forty four would fed. So that's the principle is that you're packaging this around six electric power unit. So EPA US, they call them and in a sort of a an oval shape which gives you a nice sort of equal area of left on each side and. Essentially redundancy it case one of those systems fails you've always got five others. One would power down the other forward power up to keep your balanced It's just a the so many layers of redundancy that are built into this design that you know sort of goes to the fact that. Job has really put safety as the absolutely leading design principle for this having actually figured out how to make it a vehicle fly one, hundred, fifty nautical miles. At about one, hundred, seventy five points and do it in such a way that you can recharge between between missions even at that length in a short time. So it's a the so many areas to look at.

"T will shut down three g calling service in twenty twenty three and Verizon, shutting, down, three g service at the end of this year. Yeah, everybody's making a bigger deal about this. Then I think they would have because of that at and t. e. mail that we talked about previously this week where they kind of tried to scare people into upgrading their phone two years before they're ending. The three G calling service. What T. Mobile's trying to say is look with barely have anybody on the network who uses the voice over L. T. E. or non? Vio Lt phone. And and the only ones that do are people who bring their own phone, so we're. We're just letting them know like. Hey, if you bring your own phone, you better bring a newer phone because if you're bringing a three year old phone, it's not going to activate and anybody who, still in the network in January whose phone is several years old probably ought upgrade do, but they're not sending out a scary email about it at least not yet. To security firms, seductive and grim have found that the android version of the DJ. I, go four APP that's the APP you use with the Quad Copter. Some DJ has some suspicious behaviors, or at least these two researchers think so the researchers say the APP can download code outside of the Google play store, so not an update to the Google play store, but it can secretly download its own code and install theoretically anything at wants any application once. In fact? It uses the way Bo framework to do this and way bow allows for you to download and install apps within way because it's a super APP, it's a platform. The researchers also found a function that they say could restart the APP when the user closes it so that you wouldn't notice that it didn't stay closed and then it would run in the background making network requests all right, so those aren't great things. Dj says yes, we have an APP. Update function like that. We have to have that to guard against users geofencing restrictions the FAA in the united. States requires restrictions on the APP to say you can't fly into these particular areas. You can't go above this. This altitude, and if people try to hack the APP, get around that, this function would automatically replace any code that a hacker would put in to put the geofencing back. That's DJ I is saying it's their four DJ. I also says it can't replicate the restart function that the researchers are talking about. They're like we don't. We don't see that happening DJ I also says its functions were never exploited for militias. Reasons There's no evidence of that. The researchers say yeah.

R. drown French company called parrot sought at the Consumer Electronics about ten years ago and was really impressed start taking off and you can really give a credit to the iPhone because many of the technologies that were developed for the iPhone X. Celeron meters GPS small processors once apple star make him in the millions they got the price is way down on these parts and they got a lot of manufacturing sophistication in China how to make these laws factories apple when it first started making the iPhones in China they have a make custom machines and do a lot of training it was a big deal but they got it working and once they did it powered a whole renaissance of technologies including the quad copter in fact most quadcopters you fly with the smartphone so some of the brains actually off loaded into the a smartphone or the iPad D.

The Proposed UAS Remote ID Rule
"Right so we're going to shift gears a little bit today. This is What I would dare call a special episode of the Green. Dot focused on On a particular issue and that is the FAA has issued an NPR notice of proposed rulemaking Around the subject of remote ID for unmanned aircraft systems so Maybe you you start at step us through first of all though the basics You know we are am is is what and then. What's the what's the meat of this before we get into those details? Sure how so anytime. Faa intends to propagate a new significant rule They go through a public process And it's called rulemaking Once the FAA team the rulemaking team has completed. What they think is the best. I pass at a draft rule that goes through a number of processes within the FAA and within the within other parts of the government and then ultimately gets published to the public docket as notice of proposed rulemaking or NPR them. the NPR. I'm typically has a comment period anywhere between this littlest thirty days and as much as one hundred twenty days and this particular rule Package has a sixty day comment period. So it will end. Its been posted to the docket as of the first of the year and it will end on March second the comment period itself and then from there they have to what's called disposition all of the public comments and in this case there's many is already up to believe just under eight thousand comments to the docket and climbing now You said we had There's the sixty day comment period now if I remember correctly we and other groups petitioned the FAA to say we would like more time to To put in those comments did. And that's that's something. That's a typical normal request for a rule package. That is this size in this complex. This is a three hundred nineteen page document and it has much a new way of detail and complexity and with the current sixty day window. That's literally five pages a day that need analysts analyzing and review and most importantly a level of of understanding and correlation that we can then provide Helpful FEEDBACK THAT SAYS. You know what you missed the following elements because they're not as good as they could be or they're going to be detrimental in many cases and here's a better way to go about it. And that takes time you have to understand or comprehend it and be able to to craft it within the FAA's language that says this is a better way to do it. Please take this recommendation If you just say this this is terrible and this doesn't work and it stinks It doesn't do any good. They just put that in one bucket and it doesn't go anywhere from there so you have to provide meaningful comments to docket right and obviously they. They want that feedback because they they. This is notice of proposed rulemaking. This is not the announcement of a rule And they've they've provided sixty days but But they said no to the extent you didn't they they did. They did They denied all of the organizations. That requested extensions a denial. And it's that's concerning We'll we'll Marshall through that and we will still get our recommendations on the docket by the closure period but it certainly is not a lot of time. And I. I don't know what that foreshadows It's concerning to see that. They had zero flexibility in this process. And that's by the way I've been doing this quite some time I've been the head of advocacy since two thousand and ten and be involved with advocacy before that even in. This is the first time I've seen that happen. Really Verse First. I've seen the FAA not provide an adequate extension for a reasonable request based on factual data. Why that request was necessary. And Sean. What was what was really concerning. Was that as you know as you mentioned. It's considering itself that they that they rejected the request but then a lot of the rationale that they provided was basically something to the effect that you know an extra thirty or sixty days is unacceptable in relation to the threat posed by By by unmanned aerial systems in other words. This is something that is so important. It can't wait another month or two to be implemented which does not bode well in our opinion for the You know for a carefully crafted and carefully considered rule which is essential here. So let's Alaska either one of you guys said take a take a stab at Simple explanation of what What remote. Id is and what problem is the FAA trying to solve with this and what are the UH? What's what's in a nutshell. What is the essence of the proposed rule? So the problems I think everyone in the world certainly understand and that's the the the typical operations that have been done either Either nefarious -ly or without a proper knowledge or understanding or carelessly That have caused problems within the national airspace system. And I think as a full-size aviator there's nobody out there in the as community that would say no remote ideas appropriate. We need some mechanism that helps curtail these operations that do cause problems in the Nass You know the the the camera platform that Pops up at the final approach corridor to McCarron in in Las Vegas that disrupts air traffic You know the the activity at the Super Bowl. Right in the middle of a temporary flight restriction. Those kinds of things are not good and we certainly need a mechanism to to have the ability to curtail those that being said the way. This rule is composed. It is a broad brush one-size-fits-all approach and it has really done so in a way that is going to it. Stands to be potentially very damaging to a two long standing aspects of US operations which model and traditional model lesion without thought. It was really a one-size-fits-all and everyone's going to ultimately be there with this For the benefit of the Nass. And we think that's a reckless approach. So Tom can you speak to a little bit more of the details of it so on on the surface the the scenario sean laid out. Here's a here's a quad copter with a camera on it on the final approach course in Las Vegas or any number of things hovering over the Super Bowl What about this rule remedies that situation? Yeah and I think it's important also understand kind of I think in any kind of of an advocacy project. It's important to understand the motivations of everybody coming to the table. You know whether you agree with them or not Because it that that drives a lot of the decision making really helps you understand where this is coming from. So you know the the idea. Here is that A lot of these out of the box devices would have some way of identifying. Who's flying them Now a lot of people would say well if somebody's doing something truly nefarious They're not going to comply with this. That's absolutely correct but the the idea here is that Again in in the the theory that this is being promulgated under is that the people who just rip it out of the box and go fly it klew Leslie well. They're going to be identified because you know they're they're operating the device as it was sold And they'll be able to be easily identified and corrected if they're applying inside a protected. Airspace or endangering aircraft people on the ground anything like that For people who disabled these devices are fly them? Outside of the rule? That'll be very That'll make it easier to identify bad actors to law enforcement because they can look up. You can see a device flying overhead. They can look on their little APP or whatever. It's going to be that identifies the users and say. Oh well that's not an identified. There's I have no record of that thing being authorized. Yeah kind of like a car. Driving around into a licence plate sure So so getting back to the to the NPR around. There's there's think of it as three different levels that this thing establishes there's F- full remote. Id which is a device on the drone or USA. The the the flying device itself That broadcasts the location and the identity of the user to To the outside to to the to the public to law enforcement And that's either directly from the device itself or it. Goes back to a transmitting station on the ground. That that broadcasts it. It does require a certain amount of connectivity. Which is an issue that the that we've identified in this in this. Npr Am Think of it basically think of it as a DSP for drones right okay Then there's limited remote ide- where basically you tell the FAA where you're going to be flying and as long as you're not in an area that's going to be a problem airspace wise You can do that now. That sounds relatively reasonable. You know you basically establish yourself as kind of a temporary flying site wherever it is. You're going the problem is that that's not good enough under this NPR. I'm you also have to have geofencing software on your US itself that keeps it under the proposal here within a four hundred foot bubble of the operator. Anybody who's flown a model aircraft knows. That's not the way you fly a model aircraft. You know you're standing to one side of the field. And what's frankly not really the way flight drone
Autonomous helicopter joins its rover buddy for Mars 2020 mission
"A mars helicopter so this thing it's a very small quad copter think of it is <hes> what else toy drones you could buy from amazon for kinda cheap but this isn't very cheap and it's not very small. It's about the size is of a shoebox with the rotors about <hes> about four feet wide and this helicopter is not mission critical go so they just attached this to the belly of the mars rover in the high one cleanroom at jet propulsion propulsion laboratory in pasadena california sing is solar powered and it has the mars helicopter delivery system which which will deliver well deliver the the helicopter to mars and also that's what helps it launch and <hes> <hes> shields it from debris during entry descent and landing the helicopter will remain encapsulated in the mars helicopter the delivery system after landing deploying to the surface once a suitable area conduct test flights is found in the crater where they land now. It's a very high risk high reward technology demonstration. If this helicopter encounters difficulties difficulties the science of the mars twenty twenty mission won't be impacted but if the helicopter is successful and if it takes flight is designed the future missions to mars could possibly have other quad captors other drone copters. Yes that could deploy when they get there so <hes> spokesman from g._p._l. Said our job is to. I prefer to prove that autonomous controlled flight can be executed in the extremely thin martian atmosphere since our helicopter is designed as a flight test of experimental technology carries no science instruments but if he proved powered flight on mars can work we look forward to the day when mars helicopters aw can play an important role in future explorations of the red planet. Mars is big world and there's lots of geography on mars. There's cliffs caves in deep craters that a rover just can't get too and that's why something like a helicopter like a quad copter is very important to the future missions on the red planet. They can act as scouts. They can film inside caves. They can film inside craters. That could take pictures. They could take amazing photos of things that we would never be able to see if we were just relying on rovers and nasa intends to establish a sustained human presence on the moon through there nasa artemis miss lunar exploration missions and they could possibly use <hes> quite captors on the moon as well so <hes> jim breitenstein nastase administrator said the rate brothers flew the first plane kitty hawk north carolina but they built it in dayton and the mars helicopter destined to be the first aircraft to fly in another world was built in pasadena california join now to the twenty twenty rover. It is yet another example of how nasa artemis generation is expanding humanities reach in our solar system with this joining of two grace spacecraft. I can say definitively. I believe that all the pieces are in place for historic mission of exploration together mars twenty twenty and the mars helicopter will help define the future of science and exploration of the red planet for decades to come mars twenty twenty with the helicopter on board will launch an a u._c._l._a. Atlas five rocket in in july of twenty twenty from space launch complex forty one it cape canaveral air force station in florida in it'll land on mars <music> on february eighteenth of twenty twenty one the rover will be the first space craft and the history of planetary exploration with the ability to accurately re target its point if touchdown during the landing sequence and this new helicopter the mars twenty twenty helicopter it could possibly return so amazing results showing that we can fly a helicopter on another world and if that's the case. There's going to be a lot of saying. It's happening with a lot more helicopters in the future

Flying insect-like robot gets closer to independent flight
"A flying insect light robot flits closer to independent flight. And we got a photo onscreen of it just over six years ago when researchers at Harvard announced that they had made tiny flying robots. They immediately began talking about the prospect of their tiny creations operating a ton Asli in complicated environments now. That seemed wildly optimistic given that the robots flew by trailing a set of copper wires at broad power and control instructions and robots guided by computer that monitored their positions using camera. Now, since then, the team has continued working on refining those tiny machines giving them an hands landing capabilities in today, the team is announcing the first demonstration of self, powered flight a flight, very short and isn't self control, but the tiny craft manages to carry both power supply circuitry and its own power source. Now, there are two approaches to miniaturizing something which you can think of as top down and bottom up now from the top down side companies are striking components in cutting way to allow ever smaller versions of quad, copter Jones of flying, which some are available that way as little as ten grams. But this type of harbor faces some hard physical limits that are going to limit how much could shrink batteries, for example, end up with more of their mass going to packaging in support hard. Wear rather than charge storage, and then friction begins to play a dominant role in a performance of the standard rotating mortars. Now, the alternative is bottom up start with something similar to the flying insect. Like robots figure out how to expand the capabilities, not surprisingly since they built the insect like robots Harvard team has chosen a bottom up, approach now the original design had PC all electric Motors that could rapidly flap to wings, providing the robot with powered flight power with the high voltage in rapid oscillations was supplied externally. The same was true with flight control information a camera tractor robot while in flight that computer figured out, what adjustments were needed sent a corresponding adjustments directly to the wings. Now, the goal of this work is get rid of some of that external hardware shrinking it down. So it can be placed on board. The robot itself knee won't need these wires cables or computers outside hung on what the do now for this new work. Researchers focused on the power source that keeps the robot airborne. So it's auto cogos more in depth. Into looking at it. It's called the robo be it has an X wing design and here, it is onscreen, including power electronics now. Yeah, it is pretty impressive. Well, how does it work included? Video shows that a does fly. But only extremely briefly typical flights are for less than half a second requires three sons worth of incoming light authors. Term this sustained, which seems like it stretching the definition of the word robot. Mostly handles control. Simply by not flying long enough to have to deal with it. But there's some significant room for improvement which the bottom up approach monologues at well definitely definitely looks.
Drones' Batteries Could Last Longer if They Could Perch Like Birds
"Hour KYW new hung and his colleagues at Yale University are trying to extend the time a drone can stay on the job and for inspiration. They turn to birds whereas usually flight somewhere, they stay at the top of the roof or some tree branches. And then the look for their prey or they just stayed there without flapping their wings all the time. And then they can't do. All what is happening around them and observing takes a lot less energy than flying hung and his colleagues developed a clawlike landing system that lets drone grab onto a branch or pole and turn off its engines. And Hong says their new system allows a drone to save energy, even when no suitable branches available. We have developed like multiple rised lending gear framework that allows the Joan to not only perch on some structures, but also the drone can rest on some structures when proteins not possible by resting hung means the quad copter. Kenneth essentially lean against the ledge and stay there using just two of its four rotors saving energy Hong describes his work in the journal science,

"Quad copter, except this one has six -ducted fans, not four and they can rotate to provide lift and thrust. So it's like a V T O L vehicle. The company has partnered with Uber and they plan to have an air taxi service launch figuratively and literally sometime in the twenty twenties. So according to bell, this concept could hold up to five people, and it has a weight capacity of six hundred pounds. So it's not gonna be carrying around the starting lineup of a hockey team or anything that'd be too heavy. But if all goes as planned within the decade, we're going to have flying taxis taking us places assuming that they are proven to be safe. And we figure out how the heck to create regulations for such a thing. This is going to be another one of those into the cases where technology and the law are not in alignment. Feeling that the laws going to have to catch up quickly to this kind of tech finally for this episode? I mean, there's tons more. I could talk about, but I've been going super long already. This is like an old school tech stuff. Episode Harley Davidson showed off its first all electric motorcycle here at C ES. It's going to be available for purchase later in two thousand nineteen for the parentally some of twenty nine thousand seven hundred ninety nine dollars one of the most expensive electric motorbikes. Have heard of in fact, it might be the most expensive one I've seen it can go from zero to sixty miles per hour and just three and a half seconds. And according to the company it will actually produce a quote, new signature Harley Davidson sound in quote as you accelerate because you know, it's electric so otherwise it would be completely silent when it was gearing up. But now, and you don't have to worry about switching gears either because some electric motor. But now it's going to have a an electronic generated sound so that you still get that feel of the Harley rumble. I imagine. I really hope to get a chance to look at that in person. I'm sure that's at the north hall where most of the cars and vehicles stuff is here at the at CAS, it's over at the Las Vegas convention center. So hopefully tomorrow, we'll get chance to see that. All right. Well, that is our overview of C E S two thousand nineteen I'm going to get out of here send this off to my wonder producer Tari, and hopefully she'll be able to to get this up and running soon, whereas I will be wandering the halls of CAS trying to see if there's anything else interesting to talk about in future episodes. So you guys I hope you've had a great new year. So far, I look forward to hearing from you guys if you have any suggestions for future topics of tech stuff. Whether it's a company technology, maybe there's someone in tech. I should focus on let me know semi an Email. The address is
"quad copter" Discussed on Probably Science
"I mean, it's kind of quite awesome actually, because this is what our generations going to have Argo sage right now and you're everything is on. Nothing's been changing funding wise. Everything's on a good path. You think funding. Obviously, everything always be better, but I think we're getting appropriate funding. Yeah, you know, we obviously stuff that we're working on always like to see more funding for it, but I think it's appropriate. I mean, we have there was there's a new mission. There's a competition out there going on right now between two missions. One of them that's going to do sample a comet and another one is. Going to land a quad copter or an Octo copter on titan? No sadder. That's actually what we talked about. The latter one is actually one of things that we're putting in. We're deployed physics lab is competing with other institution to get funding for mission, and our vision called Dragonfly, which I, I hope gets funded. It literally will land on titan and it's an October. So you think about think about the Mars Rovers, right. Those are insane success stories. And part of the coolness about those Rovers is at it didn't just land in one spot and take measurements there. It landed in it roved hence the term Rover, right? And you're able to get yearly all sorts of measurements across a wider geographical, see more geographical diversity cross your measurements. So wouldn't it be cool a fly instead of roving? Think about the range you'll be able to get. So the atmosphere on titan is sufficiently thick that you can get lift from Rhode ablaze titan is actually quite it's, it's perfect for this. So. The not only is the gravity much less than earth, but the atmosphere is much thicker. So so you got you, got you. Got gravity of working for you. You know, not pulling you down as much and you got to thickness to generate lift its giant lift. So you're we'll land will take some measurements. Then we'll generate lift and go in Dragonfly away somewhere else. And if you if you Google thing, it looks like a Dragonfly, very aptly named spacecraft. So anyway, speaking to get this hasn't been decided yet by NASA. But the next big billion dollar level mission is going to be one of these two so NASA while the rival bid, what are they? They're gonna land. They're gonna be doing a comet sample return. They're gonna land on a comet, get a sample of it and bring it back. So that's that's also co. Yeah, it's very, very cool. You know, it's like I hate to admit it, but our competition also has something that's really interesting. Have we never brought anything back to earth wasn't like from the moon? Is that the only thing we've gotten samples returned from or that I'm. Aware of there might be something else that I'm not aware of. But I, I can't think of it. I'm not the expert on this though, but I we haven't gotten a piece of a comment back. Yeah, so that'd be kinda cool, but the fly quad or Octo copter on alien worlds. You You know. know. Orbiting Saturn, you know, I just looked it up. I wouldn't have pictured. Each of the pairs are stacked on top. Each other four sets of two levels. It's actually redundancy built into that Bilton. Okay, so it's it's, I've Roney said quad copter correct myself to Octo copier, but it looks like a quad copter. It's really quite copter that has dual quads. So dual quad copter. Yeah, it's almost like quad copter biplane like, there you go. I like it. I I like like it. it. Called Costa nothing next to it and these artists renderings to give a sense of how big that the quake op. Gee, I can't. I can't speak exactly how big that is. I'm sure we'll find something linked to it if you look at the show notes here. Yeah, so that that's that's so NASA periodically has various competitions to do to do missions. There's two, there's two main classes of those..
"quad copter" Discussed on NASA In Silicon Valley
"Can mandate vision but yeah yeah i know obviously drones is a little bit of a loaded term because i think even when i was a kid people had radio controlled airplanes and the difference between that and one of these some of these quad copters i mean they call these drones but it's still no different it's silly human using a remote control the point where it becomes like a drone or interested in unmanned is some of the autonomous aspects to me at least in my head that seems to be the major difference because just running a quad copter is one thing but now when the quad copter is following some software or an algorithm to run it self that's where it gets more interesting and complicated yeah and that's what it gets really interesting typically shays all the cool stuff happens in jet blends dies beginning to see that migrating into aviation with you're seeing motor konami more gps based or thomas operations two drones because there's is no pilot in new all on the wake or inside the waco so it's done through remote bislett or fully autonomous so that's what is getting really exciting than that enables more transformation of aviation operations you can see along future of course we had to we had to make sure that these operations are safe but nonetheless it enables us to start looking at how autonomous operations will take place inside space obviously think i mean i think of self driving cars will have light are sensors and cameras and different things that can help let understand its environment obviously you can put some of that stuff on a drone so it knows where it is in three d space but it seems like i don't know with too many of them or things moving really fast you almost need to have them interconnected to each other they need to know exactly what that other one is doing.
