Watch Dubai’s Autonomous Flying Taxi Take Its First Flight
Dubai’s autonomous flying taxi is now airborne. The city revealed on Monday it has successfully completed the first test flight of its flying taxi, which could form the basis of the world’s first self-driving taxi service. The project is part of a major mobility strategy that aims for a quarter of total journeys in Dubai to be fully autonomous by 2030.
“After the remarkable success of the first driverless metro in the region, we are glad to witness today the test flight of the Autonomous Air Taxi,” Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, crown prince of Dubai, said in a statement. “Encouraging innovation and adopting the latest technologies contribute not only to the country’s development but also build bridges into the future.” The Sheikh took part in the maiden flight.
