Results of Solar Decathlon ME 2018 contests

At Solar Decathlon ME 2018 contests  was teams from United Arab Emirates, Australia, France,
Italy, Malaysia, Netherlands, Palestine, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and United States.

The 2018 edition of this competition is organized by DEWA, in Dubai at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. SDME consists of 10 contests that will follow the lines of those in previous editions of the competition, although having the necessary customization to challenge the teams to adapt their designs to the heat, dust & high humidity that we experience in the Middle East. The projects are developed by multidisciplinary teams, giving the students the opportunity to learn about technical issues, teamwork, communication skills, and sustainable lifestyle and socio-economic issues in order to ensure the viability of their project.

Drives like a family car, flies autonomously, for door-to-door commute

NFT Inc. a Silicon Valley developer of autonomous commuter transportation solutions, will present the concept of their state of the art 2 or 4-seater eVTOL (electric Vertical Landing & Takeoff) at CES 2019 Eureka Park (Booth 51701).

Key differentiators of the NFT eVTOL:
Fly and Drive Door-to-Door eVTOL with target of 500 km autonomous flight and 100km drive
Easily parks and charges in a garage or on-street parking, no heliport or special airstrip needed Enables people to live outside a major city and have a short, convenient door-to-door commute to work.

NFT’s innovative edge is a crack team of engineers, experts in their field and problem-solvers who love challenges, who have combined experience of 20–34 years in developing world leading aircraft, drones and UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

The company’s vision is to significantly reduce transit congestion in and out of urban areas and turn daily door-to-door commutes into an easy, stress-free experience, leading to reduced environmental impact and a higher quality of life in mega-cities. The manufacturing model for the NFT drive and fly vehicle, which bridges automotive and aviation, will enable it to be priced in the range of a family car, making autonomous commuting an affordable reality.

Guy Kaplinsky, Co-founder and Chairman, comments: “People like to have privacy, convenience, and quality time in their commuting experience. We’re addressing that by offering a unique drive and fly vehicle that you can pull out of the garage and drive down the street. Then stop the car, program your destination, and take off vertically. Sit back and enjoy a quick and easy commute to work – the ultimate door-to-door solution.”
