Dubai wants Tesla, Google and Uber to test their driverless cars on its roads, a senior Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has said.
The emirate has already conducted tests on driverless vehicles at Business Bay and Downtown Dubai – the move inspired to achieve Dubai’s goal to make 25 percent of its public transport autonomous by 2030.
Last month, the RTA signed an agreement with US-based Tesla to buy 200 electric vehicles fitted with autonomous driving technology.
Speaking to Arabian Business recently, Ahmad Hashem Behroozian, chief executive officer, RTA’s Licensing Agency, said it is likely to strike partnerships with many global carmakers and technology companies who see to test their autonomous vehicles technologies. More info
