804 0

This summer in Dubai, prepare for a revolution in the way the rich and privileged take to the skies. Yesterday at the World Government Summit, Mattar al-Tayer, the head of Dubai’s Road & Transportation Agency, announced plans of a new passenger-carrying drone service. The self-driving vehicles will ferry commuters between predetermined locations by July.

The drone will be able to carry a passenger weighing up to 100 kilograms and a “small” suitcase. Top speed for the craft will be 160 kph (100mph), however the usually speed will be 100 kph (62mph). The Road and Transportation Agency issued a statement saying the drone had been examined by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and was controlled through 4G mobile internet.

The EHang 184 is a Chinese made all electric drone that first was shown to the public during CES 2016. The EHang 184 can fly about 50 kilometers (31 miles) on a single charge and will be piloted and monitored from a remote command center.
