Airspeeder, the world’s first electric flying car racing series, is thrilled to announce a groundbreaking technical and strategic partnership with Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection.
This landmark collaboration will see Acronis, the world’s premier cyber protection company, provide both technical and commercial support to the racing series created by Alauda, the leading manufacturer of performance electric flying cars. The significance of this partnership will be exemplified by the prominent placement of the Acronis brand on Airspeeder’s cutting-edge MK4 racing craft.
With the inaugural Airspeeder Grand Prix events scheduled for 2021, Acronis’ state-of-the-art cyber protection solutions will ensure the utmost data security for the revolutionary LiDAR and Machine Vision technology. These advanced technologies enable the creation of virtual force-fields around each racing craft, known as ‘Speeders,’ enabling close but safe racing. Supporting Acronis in this endeavor is Teknov8, a global provider of cybersecurity solutions, serving as an Official #CyberFit Delivery Partner for the partnership with Airspeeder.
The rapid development of this groundbreaking technology within the highly competitive sporting landscape will have far-reaching benefits for the broader eVTOL (electrical vertical take-off and landing) sector. This emerging industry, supported my major corporations such as Uber, Daimler, Toyota, Hyundai, and Airbus, if often referred to as “flying electric taxis” and is poised to revolutionize urban transportation, significantly reducing travel times while ensuring sustainability. According to Morgan Stanley, the eVTOL sector is projected to reach a staggering worth of $1.5 trillion dollars by 2040.
