A flying car may have rotor blades that resemble the rotor blades on a helicopter. These rotor blades may be used while the car is in the flight mode, but the rotor blade units can be removed when you don't need them. A robot would be used to install the rotor units, and the robot would also remove the rotor units when you don't need them. The illustrations below show concepts for flying cars with vehicle service robots that can install and remove their rotor blade units.
Above: The illustration above shows a car with a vehicle service robot that is installing rotor blade units so the car can fly. The vehicleserive robot in this car is in the trunk, and the illustration shows the trunk lid opened, and the robot reaching out to install one of the rotor units. One rotor unit, at the front of the car is shown already installed. This illustration was made on April 3, 2017.
Above: The illustration above shows a car with four rotor units installed on it. With these rotor units, the car is capable of flying like a helicopter. This illustration was made April 2, 2017.
