Seems everyone is getting aboard the A.I. train - even conservative Bell Helicopter. And when the time is right they look forward to 'sharing more of what they're doing behind closed doors.' Ohboyohboy.


Bell flies into the future with first concept helicopter

Bell Helicopter isn't known for indulging in concept aircraft, but it's dipped its toes in the concept waters for the first time with the FCX-001. Unveiled at Heli-Expo 2017 in Dallas, Texas, the rotorcraft concept features an airframe crafted from sustainable materials, a hybrid power system, an artificial intelligence co-pilot, and morphing rotor blades that change to suit different flight conditions.

....Inside, there's a single pilot seat with augmented reality technology and an artificial intelligence computer system instead of a co-pilot or engineer. This allows the traditional Multi Function Display to be replaced and enables the aircraft to be optionally piloted, with the pilot acting more as an overseer. Bell says this is a logical stepping stone on the path to fully autonomous unpiloted VTOL aircraft.

..."Being a pioneer in the aircraft industry is in our DNA and we want to share this renewed passion with the world," says Snyder. "The FCX-001 points the way for our future – a renewed focus on innovative solutions and technologies. When the time is right we look forward to sharing more of what we're doing behind closed doors."

Doesn't matter how much it costs either, only the wealthy will be flying in it. Like business Lear jets we see over. all the time now, this business class jet helo will be landing on top of the tallest, most wealthy sky scrapers down town.

Uh huh. And maybe Bell is positioning to get into the drone-cab business too. Guess we'll have to wait and see what they reveal when they get round to 'sharing more of what they're doing behind closed doors.'

Waiting for the first AI armored limo with turret mounted escort vehicles.
