Kitty Hawk is a flying company that is backed up by top technology leader Larry Page of Google. Moreover, it is led by the co-founder of Udacity, Sebastian Thrun as well. The good news is that Kitty Hawk has signed a great deal with Boeing, one of the top aerospace conglomerates around the globe.
The terms are a little bit unclear but both the companies vouch to collaborate on urban air mobility, safety and the existence of autonomous vehicles.
Kitty Hawk is growing as we speak and they have already launched a great product, Cora, that is a two-person air taxi. Another product is a Flyer that is a vehicle for personalized flight. The partnership fully focuses Cora, according to the announcement.
“Working with a company like Kitty Hawk brings us closer to our goal of safely advancing the future of mobility,” said Steve Nordlund, vice president, and general manager of Boeing NeXt. NeXt is an organization within Boeing that aims to create next-gen vehicles.
Thrun also co-founded Kitty Hawk. The company is based in Mountain View, California. However, a large portion of testing activities takes place in New Zealand. The technology is relatively new the company will definitely need to partner with a good software testing company. Rigorous testing of the vehicles will be very important in order to release efficient and superb vehicles that have seamless software.
Today is the era of artificial intelligence and IoT. With such cars in the “air” we are bound to get some exciting software and technological features. To ensure that these features are truly up to the market, Kitty Hawk will definitely need to conduct rigorous testing since this technology is relative. Before market release, they will need to test the software in the flying cars for manual, automation, regression, accessibility, smoke and penetration testing etc. to ensure that the passengers remain safe in the car. A small bug can take the entire system down. Keeping this in consideration, and perhaps, by outsourcing to a quality software testing company Kitty Hawk can release cars that fly with perfection! With not even the slightest chances of any accidents! Now that sounds exciting, doesn’t it?
