Uber signed a deal with NASA Wednesday to help develop traffic systems for its flying car project which it hopes to start testing in 2020.
The ride-hailing service published details of its "on demand aviation" ambitions last year which it has called Uber Elevate.
It is now stepping up its efforts to make the project a reality. Uber said at the Web Summit tech conference in Lisbon that it signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA for the development of "unmanned traffic management." This is NASA's push to figure out how unmanned aerial systems (UAS), such as drones that fly at a low altitude, can operate safely.

Uber wants to make vertical take-off and landing vehicles. That will allow their flying cars to take off and land vertically. They will fly at a low altitude.
This is the start-up's first partnership with a U.S. federal government agency. NASA is also working with other companies to develop traffic management for these low altitude vehicles.
"UberAir will be performing far more flights on a daily basis than it has ever been done before. Doing this safely and efficiently is going to require a foundational change in airspace management technologies," Jeff Holden, chief product officer at Uber, said in a statement on Wednesday.
"Combining Uber's software engineering expertise with NASA's decades of airspace experience to tackle this is a crucial step forward for Uber Elevate."
The NASA deal is the latest in a series of partnerships Uber has struck to get UberAir — which is what the new service is called — off the ground.
Earlier this year it said it was working with authorities in Dallas-Fort Worth and Dubai to bring its flying taxis to those cities. It also signed partnerships with aircraft manufacturers and real estate companies to figure out where the take off and landing sites for the flying cars could be.
Uber said Wednesday that it also plans to trial the project in Los Angeles in 2020 along with the already announced cities. The company expects the price of a trip to be competitive with the same journey if done using UberX. It is aiming to get the flying taxi service up before the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles.

I don't want ANY flying cars around! I'm cool with them hovering a few feet above the ground, essentially eliminating the need for tires and constant road repair, but hell to the naw on flying around in the air. People can't even drive the same direction on the same geographical plane without accidents.

If you're saying I dislike muslims and think they are pieces of chit.





















Then yes, you're correct.

I also don't care if you think that's wrong or not.

Nice chat. Glad we could have it.

You can say scared over and over it doesn't make it reality. Sorry for that.

To answer your question. Muslims are pieces of chit to me. Granted the only interaction I've had with them personally was in GTMO where the LOLs were flying as they baked in the Cuban sun, but based on that interaction and me not giving a chit or having the time to figure of out if they are extremist or not. I just happily dislike them all equally. :)

Anyone who is generally a burden on society. It's not really a list.

nope. why you so scared of a few billion people when your own redneck mates have killed 100 times more people on your own soil?

 

In a nutshell, rednecks kill independently of each other, muslims kill in accordance with each other through a shared belief system, so even if only 1% of the worlds muslims want to kill us that's still 16 million potential killers out there.

 

Personally, although i believe the number of muslims willing to actually carry out terrorist acts is much much smaller, that still leaves a helluva lot of people actively looking to kill us. 

 

 

A more pressing concern to me is the increasing number of self identifying muslim politicians spreading across the Western world.

 

Islam at it's heart is a political ideology, a theocratic dogmatic system which sits totally opposed to Western democratic values. It is passed of by the Media and successive governments as a religion and nothing more, thereby affording it protection under the law from the kind of scrutiny and criticism it would have to endure as a political system. 

 

Islam is the worlds fastest growing religion accounting for some 23% of the world population. As their number's spread across a Western world increasingly willing to bend the knee, it's inevitable that their political power will rise too, and unless Islam goes through some form of reformation, which is highly unlikely, your kids and grand'kids will be the ones to suffer the consequences.
