As one of the world’s first fully functional autonomous aerial vehicles, ELROY is sleek, simple and environmentally efficient, epitomising the ideal vehicle of the Modern Age.
ELROY is equipped with high-end technologies like Adaptive Flight Control, Fiber Optic Internal Communications, Field Oriented Motor Control and Encrypted Communication Channels.
ELROY can take off, land and perform all stages of flight maneuvering completely autonomously, guided securely via LTE (4G) network, or on board controlled. You can take over at any time via the Touch Flight Control or fly-by-wire joystick.
ELROY uses cutting-edge technology wrapped with user-friendly interface. The Glass Cockpit Avionics flight support software allows passengers to input their destination quickly and fly there precisely without the use of a joystick (a joystick is provided for fly-by-wire override).
Equipped with remote LTE (4G) telemetry and control capability, ELROY can send flight information in real time, use situational awareness, ADS-B display of local air traffic, real time weather radar and immersive 3D terrain data. ELROY aircraft can also be remotely controlled by the Ground Control and Monitoring Center; allowing an operator located as far away as the EU or Asia to fly a North America-based aircraft safely and efficiently.
ELROY is run strictly on FIBRE OPTICS. With the exception of the main power cables, there is not a single wire in the entire aircraft. From the connection between the Joystick to Main Control CPU to every engine controller to the navigation screens, everything is communicated by LIGHT.
