uberAIR by 2020? Uber strikes deal with Nasa to make it a reality

Uber said at the Web Summit tech conference in Lisbon that it signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA for the development of "unmanned traffic management." Uber is already testing another emerging technology, self-driving cars according to the reports. Uber's partnership is part of NASA's Space Act Agreement, a consortium of industry players working to ensure "safe and efficient operations" of its taxis and other small unmanned aerial systems flying at low altitudes. Uber plans to trial the project in Los Angeles in 2020 along with the already announced cities Dallas and Dubai, the company said. It is also hopeful of having commercial operations ready in time for the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles, the report added.
