Boeing announced a new internal division to tap into autonomous flight.
Boeing NeXt will work in partnership with outside companies to solve problems and innovate.
Boeing’s Chief Technology Officer Greg Hyslop stated Boeing had the expertise to shape the new technology.
“The development of these flying vehicles is going to arrive in the next few years. Transportation has to be multi-modal,” said Hyslop.
“The idea is that there is an emerging autonomous market out there and that is why we are creating Boeing NeXt to solve the problems in developing that.”
