Indonesian venture capital firm UMG idealab recently demonstrated a high-tech product they invested in: a prototype of flying electric taxi. This "flying car" is literally called "frogs", and its R & D team is also called frogs. The start-up, headquartered in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, claims to be the first company in Indonesia to produce manned flying cars

(translator's note: because the product has the same name as the founding team, in order to facilitate the difference, the "frog" in the following text is the product, and frogs is the founding team)

according to Jeffry pratama, partner of UMB idealab venture capital fund, the design inspiration of this prototype is from the four axis UAV. At present, the cabin, engine and rotor have been assembled and can be put into use. The main power source of flying cars is batteries

let's see the specific parameters. According to the company official, the maximum speed of the latest produk frogs V2 is 100 km/h, and the flight altitude can reach 2400 meters. The maximum flight time after charging is 1 hour, and it can carry up to 2 people. The maximum load is 200 kg

"at present, the only remaining work is to fine tune the cabin interior, such as seats. After these works are completed, this equipment will fly to Germany to participate in the Hannover Industrial Expo on April 20-24." Jefry said

jefry revealed that the overall structure of "frog" is made of strong but lightweight carbon fiber, with a high safety factor. In addition, this prototype has other features, such as fault protection mechanism: when one engine fails in midair, the engine in the engine can take over the other engine, so as not to let the flying car fall

it is reported that every part of the prototype has passed the test and met the safety requirements. At the same time, many test flights of "flying car" have also been carried out smoothly, and the internal system operates smoothly, safely and stably

"frog" was developed two years ago, with a total investment of 1 billion rupiah (about 73000 US dollars). At first, the founding team frogs was just a technology product studio. Later, they were favored by UMB idealab and joined the ecosystem of this venture capital company to become a start-up. However, according to the official, the number of people in this company is less than 10, and the founder is rakhman ardiansyah

according to the official of the team, the original intention of "frog" is to help customers get rid of the trouble of traffic congestion and deliver goods efficiently. However, according to the assumption of UMB idealab, after being put into commercial operation, frog can also help people transport all kinds of materials from remote areas to all parts of the country, including the provincial military committee and the provincial government held a special action for the safe production transformation and upgrading of the provincial chemical industry to mobilize and deploy video conference equipment. Moreover, this kind of flying taxi can also assist relevant agencies in emergency evacuation during the disaster

"we hope that this device can be put into commercial operation as soon as possible - of course, it also depends on the attitude of regulators. As far as I know, Indonesia has not issued any regulations and policies regulating flying electric taxis." Jefry said

with the efforts of the Ministry of industry, Indonesia has become one of the official partners of Hannover Industrial Expo. In addition to "frog", UMG idealab and other venture capital and incubation institutions will also show their investment achievements in the field of science and technology applications in the past five years at the Expo

"as a partner at the national level of this conference, Indonesia's main goal is to conduct in-depth cooperation with countries in investment, science and technology, human resources and other aspects." Doddy rahadi, head of regional development and international industrial access at the Indian Ministry of industry, said in a written statement

according to doddy, this year's Expo will attract tens of thousands of visitors from dozens of countries with the diversity and flexibility of polyurethane. In 2019, the event attracted about 65000 visitors from 73 countries, and nearly 5.6 million business orders were signed during the conference

in addition to "frog", another Indonesian start-up product participating in the exhibition is widya, which will show Indonesia's new technological achievements in big data, smart speakers, robots, face recognition and artificial intelligence with soft touch. In addition, a natural language processing technology (NLP) called botika will also be unveiled at the exhibition
