Self-flying taxi to transport passengers in Dubai
An autonomous drone that can transport humans will start ferrying passengers around Dubai this summer.
The head of Dubai's transportation agency said that self-flying taxis would start taking people across the city starting from July.
The city will use the Ehang 184 for the airborne service.
The Ehang is a drone that can fly without human direction and carry a single passenger and their bag.
It can take one person on a journey up to 23 minutes long.
"This is not only a model, we have actually experimented with this vehicle flying in Dubai's skies," said Mattar al-Tayer, head of Dubai's transportation agency.
