Project Objectives:
  • Develop an aircraft operating concepts in this subsector, as well as geometric concepts, homogenizing the consortium's knowledge and supporting the demonstrator to be developed.
  • Develop, on a 1: 1 scale, an innovative vehicle consisting of a remotely operated electric aerial wing component, an autonomous electric vehicle, and a passenger cabin for the transport of up to 4 people and their cargo, with an autonomy of 30 min .
  • Produce, integrate and test a 1: 4 scale prototype of a vehicle derived from 1: 1 scale developments.
  • Develop, create and test a cabin that is representative of the use and that allows the demonstration of an aesthetic mockup of the aircraft, on a 1: 1 scale.
  • Develop, prototype and integrate a cabin structure, in composite materials, using hybrid optimization technologies (human/artificial intelligence) demonstrating new means of optimized design.
  • Develop, prototype and test the interior of the cabin, including the instrumentation support system, benches, surfaces in contact with the occupants, demonstrating the skills of the consortium in the different areas applicable to this subsector.
  • Develop, prototype and test the coupling system between the cabin and the flight module, at a 1: 1 scale, including the design and production of physical means of testing at full scale as well as the performance and analysis of the tests.
  • Integrate the technical drawing (CAD) of the vehicle, as well as the structural engineering analysis models (FEM), allowing for future production of the elements and the monitoring of the structural condition in operation and testing.
  • Disseminate the scientific and technical advances achieved at various relevant international conferences / congresses and events, and in several scientific / technical journals.
Results/Impact
  • Validation of the design of an innovative vehicle consisting of a remotely operated electric aerial wing component, an autonomous electric vehicle, and a passenger cabin for the transport of up to 4 people and their cargo, with an autonomy of 30 min.
  • Functional 1: 4 scale vehicle prototype
  • Aesthetic mock-up of the interior of the aircraft cabin at 1: 1 scale
