MyCopter- or another use of Flightgear in Research and Devel

Postby HHS » Sun Oct 23, 2011 1:22 am

Hello,

Today I found something interesting.
There is a project in Europe called "MyCopter".

They indeed aimed for a creating a personal air transport system (PATS) with Personal Aerial Vehicles (PAVs).
So they are investigating what it needs to have such a system in the future.

Several universities and labs are working on this:

-Max-Planck-Institut für biologische Kybernetik
-The University of Liverpool
-École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
-Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich
-Karlsruher Institut für Technologie
-Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt



Today I found another interesting article in the local newspaper about the work of the Max-Planck-Institut für biologische Kybernetik here in Tübingen/Germany.
To my surprise they showed a picture of one of their simulators- and it does shows Flightgear! (obviously KSFO 28R)

Here to the article (in german):
