Newest personal air vehicle will be autonomously controlled.

Hyundai partnered with Uber and Aria Group to create its new PAV.Hyundai Motor Company

Hyundai Motor Company this week unveiled its Personal Air Vehicle at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company calls the PAV—an autonomous electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle—the centerpiece of its urban air mobility vision for smart city transportation. Hyundai and Uber tapped specialty design-engineer-build firm Aria Group to bring the one-of-a-kind, carbon-fiber-intensive prototype aircraft from concept to reality.


In creating the Hyundai PAV, Irvine, California-based Aria engineered and built the craft’s moving horizontal control surfaces, sequenced lift rotors, articulating vertical-to-horizontal thrust rotors and vehicle lighting. The company also created complex carbon fiber structures and tooling and the complete assembly and shipping strategy, the show-stand concept and a complete electronic control system that cycles the aircraft through a complex demonstration of rotor movements and articulations to simulate the vehicle in flight.

Clive Hawkins, president of Aria Group said, “Uber Elevate is leveraging its data and technology expertise and assembling all of the right people from aerospace and other industries, as well as federal, state and local government, to create the biggest innovation in transportation since cars took over from horses.”

On Monday, Toyota announced that the 2020 RAV4 would include standard Android Auto compatibility across the crossover’s lineup. It’s been a longtime coming for one of the most popular crossovers on sale to adopt one of the most popular smartphone operating systems.

The RAV4 will be available in LE, XLE, Adventure Grade, Limited and TRD Off Road trim levels for 2020. The RAV4 Hybrid will be offered in LE, XLE, XSE, and Limited Hybrid trim levels. RAV4 LE models are equipped with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, while all other RAV4 crossovers get an 8.0-inch touchscreen. Apple CarPlay compatibility was added last year, and Android Auto will be a new addition for 2020.

The RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid were redesigned for 2019 with a blockier exterior and new interior, including new technology. Satellite radio is standard across the lineup for 2020, with a subscription sold separately. Also new for 2020, Limited and Limited Hybrid RAV4 crossovers are equipped with premium audio from JBL as standard equipment.

Toyota is expected to announce how much the 2020 RAV4 will cost later this week, but our partners at CarsDirect uncovered dealer documents that suggest the crossover will start around $27,000 for a RAV4 LE and a RAV4 TRD Off-Road model will cost about $36,300, including destination charges.

FACET – short for Future Air Traffic Management Concepts Evaluation Tool –was such a hit when it was introduced a decade ago that NASA named it the agency’s Software of the Year for 2006. As a research tool, FACET quickly analyzes thousands of aircraft paths and displays them on a map. One of FACET’s new features is to display global flight trajectories between the continents. NASA receives data from the Official Airline Guide, which provides the departure and arrival cities, and the expected departure and arrival times.

FACET then draws a Great Circle route between the city pairs and calculates where the aircraft would be at any given time. NASA has used this capability to study the impact of global aviation emissions on the environment.

Facebook Inc.’s shareholders are poised to find out what long-time investors in other FANG stocks already know: They can’t count on higher prices every year. The social-media company, which fell 18 percent this year through Thursday, is headed for its first full-year decline since going public in 2012. The rest of the FANGs – Amazon.com Inc., Netflix Inc. and Google’s owner, Alphabet Inc. – all posted losses in 2014 and at least two other calendar years since their debuts. To be sure, Facebook slipped 30 percent from its initial public offering price in May 2012 through the end of that year.
