The company’s chopper also has a collection of cameras whose video is stitched-together to display a 360-degree view around the craft on the cockpit’s 4K/UHD screen, making it easier for the pilot to maneuver. “If we can reduce the cognitive load on the pilot, then it allows him to be less fatigued,” says Groden. “And this is just the tip of the iceberg for what we have in plan.” … [Read more...] about This high-tech 911 helicopter could be the next step to flying cars

In exchange, though, I had a big ask: I needed each of my team members to be twice as productive as the average worker. We had a high bar of productivity to clear before this, and that didn’t change.
