Title: INTEGRATED GROUND-AERIAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A passenger-carrying aerial vehicle operating as part of an integrated ground-and-air transport infrastructure, allows critical portions of a route to be completed by air transport. In some implementations, the aerial vehicle (AV) remains a single unit throughout the usage cycle, but employs a reconfigurable propulsion system to optimize the AV for integration with a stand- alone ground vehicle assembly (SGV) to form a roadable ground vehicle. In other implementations, a passenger cabin docks alternately with an aeromodule to form an aerial vehicle and with an SGV to form a ground vehicle, typically with at least part of the power source for the aeromodule located within the cabin unit.
