Airbus working on self-driving flying car!
After driverless cars took the center stage , now Airbus has gone a step further and said it will be testing a autonomous flying cars as early as next year.
The flying cars are expected to hit the skies in a decade.

re: Airbus working on self-driving flying car!
Project Vahana? As in the sanskrit work Vaahan? Okkkk... Interesting choice of name. Need to see what is the Indian contribution to this project besides the name. No doubt though that the future of travel will be through air even for shorter distances. The reasons will be varied based on geographies but the need will be consistent. So, although it sounds like a pie-in-the-sky project it may actually be quite relevant.
Edit: The narrative of the project does not seem to match with the Skyways pictograph. The graphic seems to suggest a delivery drone kind of development rather than a passenger vehicle that can fly!
