Uber je podpisal partnersko pogodbo s Pipistrelom za obse┼żni razvoj elektri─Źnih plovil VTOL (┬╗Vertical Take Off and Landing┬ź ÔÇô zra─Źna plovila z navpi─Źnim vzletanjem in pristajanjem) z namenom izpolniti svoje poslanstvo - zagotoviti varen in zanesljiv prevoz vsem svojim strankam, ne glede na to, kje se nahajajo. Cilj partnerstva je uporabnikom bodo─Źega omre┼żja ┬╗Uber Elevate Network┬ź omogo─Źiti hiter in enostaven prevoz po naro─Źilu s Pipistrelovim VTOL plovilom.

Dodatne podrobnosti partnerstva vklju─Źujejo:
ÔŚĆ Uber na─Źrtuje v ┼ítevilnih velemestih vzpostaviti stalno delujo─Źa omre┼żja elektri─Źnih VTOL plovil za osebni transport in dostavo.
ÔŚĆ Skupni cilj podjetij Uber in Pipistrel je, da bi prva demonstracijska plovila poletela do leta 2020.
ÔŚĆ Pipistrel bo razvil letala za kraj┼íe razdalje znotraj mestnega prometa na podlagi specifikacij zmogljivosti VTOL.
ÔŚĆ Uber bo sodeloval pri razvoju programske in strojne opreme za nadzor zra─Źnega prostora in upravljanje VTOL plovil znotraj mre┼że ┬╗Elevate Network┬ź ter zagotovil vmesnik, ki bo omogo─Źal povezavo s kontrolorji zra─Źnega prostora.

Ivo Boscarol, generalni direktor skupine Pipistrel, je bil eden od govorcev na dogodku. Jeff Holden, produktni vodja pri Uber-ju, je predstavil Pipistrel in napovedal Boscarolov govor:

┬╗Ponosen in navdu┼íen sem, da je Uber prepoznal na┼íe znanje, izku┼ínje in vodilni polo┼żaj na podro─Źju elektri─Źnega letalstva. To partnerstvo ozna─Źuje za─Źetek zanimive poti proti popolnoma novim na─Źinom potovanja, ki uporabnikom ne bodo prihranili samo ─Źasa, temve─Ź bodo predvsem prijaznej┼íi do okolja┬ź, pravi Ivo.

┬╗Pri Uber-ju smo navdu┼íeni, da lahko delamo skupaj s Pipistrelom in da bomo za─Źeli z razvijanjem VTOL plovil za Uber Elevate. Pipistrel je edino podjetje na svetu, ki dandanes serijsko izdeluje in prodala elektri─Źna letala. Z novo tovarno, ki bo pove─Źala njihove proizvodne zmogljivosti, so pomemben partner, ki bo omogo─Źil, da Uberjeva mre┼ża VTOL plovil postane realnost.┬ź
