Stop Everything: The Single-Passenger, Car-Sized Autonomous Drone of the Future Is Here

The EHang 184, as it’s known, apparently has undergone real-life testing already. Take your pick for what the “184” in its name means; our bets are on the number of design iterations EHang has tried, or that perhaps 184 Chinese test pilots have laid down their lives in the eight-rotor device’s development. According to EHang, the 184 is the “safest, Eco-est and Smartest low altitude autonomous aerial vehicle, aiming on providing Medium-Short Distance communication and transportation solution.”
The vehicle measures 152.2 inches long (including the rotors), which is a few inches stubbier than a
Honda Fit, but its width is even greater at 153.5 inches. From skid to rooftop, it stands 57 inches tall. When parked, the EHang’s rotor arms can fold up to reduce its footprint. Built mostly of carbon fiber and aluminum, the vehicle weighs 441 pounds empty. The eight motors combine for a total output of about 140 horsepower, and takeoff is achieved vertically; when cruising altitude is reached (the operating ceiling is 1640 feet), the 184 hums along at 62 mph before landing vertically at its destination. That destination had better be nearby, however, as the ’copter can hover for only 23 minutes before requiring two to four hours of recharging.
The vehicle measures 152.2 ihes long (including the rotors), which is a few inches stubbier than a
Worried about safety? Let EHang put your mind at ease: “During extreme weather condition, the command center will prohibit the AAV from take-off.” What if an issue crops up midflight? “Whenever there is an emergency, [the] passenger can instruct the system to land in the nearest possible area to ensure safety.” Likewise, if one of the eight rotors craps out midair, or “if any components malfunction or disconnect,” EHang says the aircraft will “immediately land in the nearest possible area to ensure safety.” It isn’t specified whether EHang considers a crash the same thing as a landing—hey, nowhere in the company’s press materials do they promise the landing will be smooth.
One limitation is that the ’copter can carry only 220 pounds worth of payload, a single passenger, and their luggage (and that luggage can’t be much bigger than a briefcase). That specification pretty much rules out the EHang’s future in the U.S.; it appears that our Big Gulp–sized population will still have to drive to McDonald’s. Perhaps that’s for the best.

About Digital Library

What is a digital library? There is much confusion surrounding this phrase as there seems to be different definitions of digital library from different point of view. The term digital library has a variety of potential meanings, ranging from a digitized collection of material that one might find in a traditional library through to the collection of all digital information along with the services that make that information useful to all possible users. As there are many definitions of a "digital library", terms such as "electronic library" and "virtual library" are often used synonymously. A digital library is nothing but a large database for the people who are working on hypertext environment. It is an environment, which supports the full life cycle of creation, storage, preservation, dissemination and use of data, information and knowledge. In more simple way, we can say that ‘Digital libraries are the digital face of traditional libraries that include both digital collections and traditional, fixed media collections.'

Features and Benefits:

  •  Finger-tip access to different technical books and journals
  •  Browse the digital library by keyword, author or a combination of criteria
  •  Not confined to any physical boundary
  •  Enhanced information retrieval

About Webinar

In simple words, a "Webinar" is a Web Based Seminar, is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. Now-a-days, as the Technology is becoming quite advanced, webinar is an easier way to reach out students far away from the speaker or "The HOST". Seven Motors will be organizing Webinars or say "Series of Webinars" for students in order to allow the students gain some Industrial Experience via Industrial EXPERTS.

  • The present scenario tells that Undergraduates need to roam around here and there to gain some Industrial Experience; it can be done in the college campus as well. Others hardly care, Seven Motors do care about you.

  • Industrial Experts will be available directly on the webinar platform where students have the chance to clear their doubts that are yet to be cleared out.

  • Our main Aim is to introduce the ATV Technology which is quite unknown from large amount of students of the country; we tend to bring a new revolution in the field of ATV and what better to have rather than many brilliant minds of the country that can join us in this revolution.

  • With the help of the webinar platform, SEVEN MOTORS looks to have a direct relationship with students and help them out achieve their goals.

We look forward to expand our family as huge as "UNIVERSE".




About Tutorials

A tutorial is a method of transferring knowledge and used vastly as a part of a learning process. It is typically set up as a series of steps that progress through levels of difficulty and understanding. It is more interactive and specific than a book or a lecture. A tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task. Internet computer tutorials can take the form of a screen recording, a written document (either online or downloadable), interactive tutorial, or an audio file, where a person will give step by step instructions on how to do something.

Seven Motors inspires student to have the deep knowledge of the subject. We work to offer best and convenient technical knowledge to students.

Tutorials usually have the following characteristics:

  •  A presentation of the view usually explaining and showing the user the user interface

  •  A demonstration of a process, using examples to show how a workflow or process is completed; often broken up into discrete modules or sections.

  •  Some method of review that reinforces or tests understanding of the content in the related module or section.

  •  A transition to additional modules or sections that builds on the instructions already provided. Tutorials can be linear or branching.
