A self-flying drone taxi will begin transporting passengers around Dubai this summer. The head of Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority said that self-flying taxis would start taking people across the city this July, 2017.
The drone will be a customised Ehang 184. The Ehang is a drone that can fly without any human input, and carry a single passenger (weighing up to 100kg) and a bag. It can travel upwards of 100kph, with a maximum flight time of 23 minutes.
