How Automobiles Work


IT SUNDAYS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF A SCI-FI MOVIE OR A SCENE FROM “THE JETSONS,” FLYING CARS. THE LOCAL COMPANY IS WORKING WITH A COMPANY FOR A CONCEPT VEHICLE. ANDS SHEEHAN HAS THAT STORY NEW AT 6:00. Reporter: MEET GEORGE JETSSON, FOR REAL, AND DAY THERE WILL BE SELF-FLYING VEHICLES. THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SHUTTLE YOU FROM PLACE TO PLACE WITHOUT THE AID OF A PILOT. AND THE PITTSBURGH COMPANY IS DEVELOPING THE SMART TECHNOLOGIES, LIKE THIS LASER AND SENSOR SYSTEM, TO MAKE SURE YOU ARRIVE THERE SAFELY. AND WHAT IT IS ABLE TO DO IS AS IT FLIES, IT IS ABLE TO THEN UNDERSTAND THE WORLD IN THREE DIMENSIONS AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE ROUTE THAT IT IS TAKING MIGHT GET IT TOO CLOSE TO SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE PROBLEMATIC. Reporter: HERE IN BLOOMFIELD, THEY’RE DEVELOPING THE SO-CALLED COMPUTER BRAINS FOR DRONES AND HELICOPTERS, SIMILAR TO THE SELF-DRIVING TECHNOLOGY BEING DEVELOPED BY UBER AND OTHER COMPANIES NEARBY. AND JUST THIS WEEK CEO SING OF ANNOUNCED A PARTNERSHIP WITH AIRBUS TO OUTFIT SELF-DRIVING CARS TO LAND SAFELY, STEERING CLEAR OF UNEXPECTED OBSTACLES. AND THAT COULD BE POWER LINES. IT COULD BE TREES, YOU KNOW, AND WE HAVE THOSE VERY QUICKLY HERE. Reporter: AND HERE AT THIS AIRSTRIP IN ALLISON PARK, THIS DRONE PUTS THE TECHNOLOGY THROUGH THE PACES. ARRANGING THESE SHIPPING CONTAINERS TO TEST THE AVOIDANCE TECHNOLOGY. ONCE PERFECTED, IT WILL BE USED ON THE SELF-FLYING CARS OF THE FUTURE. DO YOU SEE THIS HAPPENING WHERE, YOU KNOW, EXACTLY THE WAY IT WAS IN “THE JETSONS,” THAT EVERY FAMILY HAD A SELF- FLYING VEHICLE AND YOU COULD GET OUT F OF YOUR HOME AND FLY? I DON’T KNOW IF THAT HAPPENS IN THE NEAR FUTURE. Reporter: BUT THE TECHNOLOGY IS ALREADY FINDING APPLICATIONS AND USES IN AVIATION, AND THE FIRST COMMERCIAL USES OF SELF- FLYING VEHICLES MAY ONLY BE YEARS AWAY, AS IN OTHER TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS, A PITTSBURGH WILL BE TAKING THE LEAD. THAT SPACE AGE FUTURE ISN’T HERE YET, BUT IT IS GETTING CAN CLOSER EVERY DAY, AND WITH THE HELP OF THESE NEW TECHNOLOGIES BEING DEVELOPED RIGHT HERE IN OUR OWN BACK YARD, IT MAY BE

One thought on “Pittsburgh Company Developing Technology For Self-Flying Cars

  1. I really love the concept and in a perfect world this would be one of mankinds greatest accomplishments however what happens when some terrorist leaves a surprise package in one or ten or a hundred at the same time and you know they will its just a matter of time and oppertunity. Sorry to be the stick in the mud or bringer of bad news but this will certainly be a problem to be dealt with right off the bat. they will take one of the greatest experiences known to man and shit all over it!!!,
