In Dubai they do not miss anything: a land of brilliant prospect and very rapid growth that is experimenting innovative solutions in every field, especially in architecture and transport: Dubai's Roads & Transportation Agency has declared that the tests of the new Drone Taxi staff are now in the pipeline, and that the service should start by next July.
At first glance, the "Ehang 184" passenger drone of the Chinese company of the same name looks like an automated mini helicopter, which makes extensive use of GPS systems to pick up the passenger (after a "booking" via mobile app) and transport him to his destination without the need for any pilot. It holds a maximum weight of 100kg, has a flight range of 30 minutes and its range can vary from 40 to 50km, an extraordinary bypass for city traffic and movements just “out of town”.
