What will the helicopter of the future look like? Bell Helicopter's Concept
Bell Helicopter company presented its concept of a helicopter of the future called FCX-001. A group of engineers and graphic designers have designed a helicopter that combines innovation, comfort and bold design. The concept was created to meet the growing demands of consumers, as well as to demonstrate key technologies that set a new standard for pilot and passenger comfort.
According to the project, the helicopter will be equipped with a nuclear propulsion unit, which provides enough power and is quite simple and reliable during operation. To create a helicopter will be used modern eco-friendly materials that provide the necessary structural and configuration characteristics. The combination of materials and the geometry of the helicopter have been thoroughly investigated in order to maximize its aerodynamics.
The pilot will control this helicopter using augmented reality systems and artificial intelligence. The modular passenger cabin is also equipped with an augmented reality system, where passengers can get the latest news, make video calls, share documents with other people, or just watch a movie.
