Reliable Robotics, a Silicon Valley startup aiming to automate conventional fixed-wing planes to ferry cargo and eventually passengers, has raised $100 million from investors.
Coatue joins past investors Lightspeed Venture Partners, Eclipse Ventures, Teamworthy Ventures and Pathbreaker Ventures to bring total fundraising over $133 million.
Reliable Robotics will participate in flight tests during the first phase of NASA's Advanced Air Mobility's National Campaign.
Reliable Robotics, a leader in autonomous aircraft system development, today announced the hires of Myles Goeller, Chief Business Officer and Dr. David O’Brien, Director of Government Solutions.
Over the past 100 years, the technology inside airplanes has become more and more advanced from jumbo jets to smaller Cessnas. Some see the next step to full automation as removing the pilot completely.
The benefits new technologies bring to expand access to municipal airports across the country in the near future.
Decades after the federal government funded construction of thousands of airports across the country, NASA proposes using them for their originally intended purpose, and that could be good news for general aviation.
Reliable Robotics awarded contract to determine how the company’s remotely operated aircraft system can support the United States Air Force (USAF).
The opportunities autonomous planes enable, safety and the role of remote pilots.
Remotely piloting the Cessna Caravan from 50 miles away and the outlook for autonomous aircraft.
Reliable Robotics has been flying Cessnas through a mixture of autonomy and remote control. FedEx, for one, is a believer.
A first for commercial aviation.
An aviation firm run by former Tesla and SpaceX engineers is developing self-flying planes and just taught a cargo plane how to land on its own.
Company origin, automating the Cessna 172 and Cessna Caravan, the role of the remote pilot and certifying the system.
Autonomous Cessna 208 Caravans remotely supervised.
Delivering produce in record time.
Silicon Valley has been hard at work on the vexing challenge of autonomous cars. Now veterans of SpaceX and Tesla Inc. are announcing what they’ve been up to: a new startup working on self-flying planes for cargo.
Reliable Robotics, created by two Space X veterans, plans unmanned air cargo deliveries within two years.
A US start-up headed by former Tesla and SpaceX software engineers has completed more than 50 flights of remotely-piloted Cessna aircraft and aims to offer a certified pilotless Caravan 208B within as little as two years.
With first flights of autonomous passenger airplanes over populated regions.
