An article from Press Examiner features Mobility apps, Maglev, Hyperloop and L1 Flight Controller as new technologies that make travelling safer and more effective.

Another important breakthrough has also recently been discovered by researchers at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. The article, published on the University’s news site last March, states how the implications of this discovery are dramatic to airplane and aircraft safety.

Naira Hovakimyan, a professor at the university, announces her team’s highly successful test of the Hovakimyan’s L1 adaptive control technology on a manned army aircraft, which should be an important step towards the technology’s introduction into commercial aviation.

Hovakimyan is hopeful that this will create a dramatic improvement in flight safety for aircrafts equipped with her team’s technology, and we’re certainly looking forward to it.
