Abstract

Over the decades, transportation was used in order to move a person or an object from point A to B. There are few types of transportation has been used until now, one of them is Car. Is one of the most popular transportation because is simple, efficient, and enough to travel with distance. Over the year the number of car is keep increasing, according to the population of car, there is no more room on the road to line up the car while driving and simply create a traffic jam. By the time goes, the car itself is keep improving with new technology and features that makes the user more comfortable while riding it, but it does not solve the traffic jam problem unless the car is flying. Involving the aerospace engineering into the automotive industry is one big gap and has many limitations, but it does not rule out the possibility to make a flying car. Wing is needed on this project to handle the air while the objects is flying. Few types of hinge and linkage is well design to achieve a folding mechanism design that fit into the structure of the wing. The folded wing mechanism can be used when it fully expands for flying and folded for driving on regular street.
