Not only do we have the 2020 Tokyo Olympics coming next year where we'll see a gigantic push for 8K which will be the new standard for TV, streams, and video -- but the country will be pulling out autonomous taxis, drones, and AI during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Airbus, Aeroports de Paris and the Paris Transport Authority are looking at ways of deploying autonomous flkying taxis for the 2024 Paris Olympics, which would autonomously fly passengers from Charles de Gaulle Airport into the city. I can't even imagine a future like that, but it seems we're seeing it being taken seriously for a huge event with so many eyes on it -- reporting on autonomous flying taxis, the actual possible future of travel.
While it's being pushed as a time saver we know it'll only really appeal to those with deeper pockets who want to experience this, as well as the rich and famous. The normal bus or trains from the airport to Paris will take around an hour, so the time saving element -- as well as like Buzz Lightyear famously says in Toy Story that he's "falling, with style". You would definitely be arriving into Paris in style, in an autonomous flying taxi like a boss.
Aeroports de Paris will be choosing a site to build its base of operations by the end of 2019, which will be ready within the next 18 months. Edward Arkright with Aeroports de Paris said that the team will test the link through an "existing helicopter corridor". Exciting times!
