Driverless taxis? On the streets of Dubai… in our lifetime?
The city has not been shy of its strategy to have 25% autonomous vehicles on the roads by 2030, which would save AED22 billion in annual economic costs, cut carbon emissions, cut your driving hours and ‘position Dubai as a global leading example’.
The city has encouraged new tech, infrastructure and even this week new rules to regulate the testing of driverless vehicles were announced.
And a previously released video of what driverless RTA taxis would look like is now making rounds online.
