Neurobotx, a company building “the ultimate cognitive metaverse” and JetX who are developing a real-life vector-thrust eVTOL, are collaborating to construct a highly realistic air taxi simulation for gamers to experience on a meta pilot gaming platform to allow users to experience the future of transportation firsthand, reports a press release.
The release states, “Metapilot is a desktop and VR game that simulates different air taxi models in a digital twin of Manhattan. Expertise in machine learning and robotics will be leveraged to create a highly realistic simulation that incorporates real-world factors such as weather, traffic and passenger behaviour, that works closely with governments and regulators to generate synthetic data needed to expedite the mass adoption of eVTOLs.”
Meanwhile, JetX is to provide expertise in the design and operation of air taxis. The simulation will accurately reflect the unique challenges of such transportation via “a relaxed retrowave soundscape flying across a digital twin of New York.” The release continues, “Users will be able to interact with the simulation in a highly immersive environment that accurately replicates the real-world air taxi experience.”
The CEO of neurobotx, Dr. Diana Deca, commented, “JetX is the first electric jet on our platform, meaning our metapilots will be able to fly a thruster-powered (as opposed to the traditional rotorcraft) airtaxi. The mechanics, acoustics and overall experience will be a great addition to our collection and it’s probably the closest thing to flying an actual rocket.”
By leveraging advanced simulation capabilities, the two companies are working to create a safer, more efficient, and more accessible mode of transportation that will transform the way people travel for millions of users.
Nelson Salas, the JETX Founder, said, ”We are excited to partner with neurobotx to create a digital twin of JetX. Their expertise in simulation, synthetic data generation, government and corporate partnerships and machine learning combined with our industry experience, will enable us to create a highly realistic air taxi simulation that accurately reflects the challenges of this transportation.”
He continued, “We believe that the simulation will be a game-changer in the industry and help pave the way for a new era of transportation. The simulation technology developed by Neurobotx will be an important tool in achieving that goal, enabling users to experience the benefits of air taxi transportation firsthand”.
