Jason Hope is one of the foremost entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona. He has founded dozens of highly successful startup companies, including Jawa, the first premium mobile content streaming service, which successfully proved that the premium content streaming model, especially to mobile devices, is viable. With this business, Jason Hope was able to beat such major names as Google and Apple to the premium content streaming business by more than 10 years, rightfully giving him the title as the inventor of that business model.
Recently, Hope has taken to the internet, writing about a variety of different topics that have interested him for the better part of his life. One of the main topics the Hope has been writing and blogging about has been coming advent of the Internet of Things and how these new technologies will change the way the people live their lives.
One aspect of the Internet of Things that Jason Hope has addressed and that many people are not aware of is that the aviation industry has already had Internet of Things technologies in place and functioning as an integral part of the United States air travel system. For example, Jason Hope points out that a system called VOR, short for Very High Frequency Omindirectional Range, represents one of the first forms of highly accurate navigation through directional radio beacons. These directional radio beacons are the foundation of many Internet of Things technologies, including automated vacuum cleaners, some aspects of self-driving vehicle navigation systems and even the highly accurate geolocation technology that allows people’s phones to be precisely traced to within a few feet.
Hope says that it is likely that the Internet of Things and related technologies well help to shape U.S. air travel into the future. Jason Hope believes that air travel of the future will involve autonomous vehicles. He believes that regional air travel and even local air travel between relatively close cities will become a commonplace event.
Hope says that technologies like automated flying drone-like vehicles and automated systems by which those autonomous vehicles can navigate will help to make short hops, such as those between cities less than 100 miles apart, a highly economical and time effective way to travel.
Hope says that Internet of Things technologies may allow flying taxis the ability to make 100-mile journeys it as little as 15 minutes, end to end. This could completely revolutionize the way in which people travel.
