Dubai It is one of the most prosperous cities on the planet, a city that has known how to invest its money not only to depend on the income generated by oil and thus become one of the most interesting cities for tourism. This is possible thanks to its great growth, investments, expansion and, above all, getting updated and knowing how to mix its culture with that of the West.
One of the examples of how the sheiks who control Dubai have known how to update themselves is how it is precisely one of the first cities to welcome all kinds of news in any sector of the market with open arms. Thanks to this, today we can talk about how, this month, they will debut their first service of drones taxis.
Ehang has been the company in charge of designing and manufacturing the Dubai taxi drone
These drones with real capacity to carry passengers have been designed and manufactured by the Chinese manufacturer Ehang and they have the capacity to carry inside a passenger with their suitcase, that is, a maximum weight of 120 kg during a journey that at the moment must be less than half an hour of flight or about 50 kilometers of route.
Undoubtedly a more than interesting project that responds to the needs raised by the sheikhs who govern the capital of the United Arab Emirates where, apparently, they want it to be by 20130. 25% of the transport is carried out without a driver, something that, as has been reported on other occasions, will greatly streamline all daily trips to the city while contributing to drastically reduce pollution.
As a final detail, tell you that, for the moment and despite the fact that it may seem that we are facing a true fully autonomous flying taxi, nothing is further from reality, all models will be managed from a remote control center. In the event of any problems arising during the flight, the vehicles are scheduled to land in the closest safe zone.
