Now you can avoid traffic and its hassles completely by travelling around Dubai. The Emirate has become the first city to introduce drone taxis.

The Arabian city of Dubai consistently leads the world in many innovative concepts, and this time they have done it again - Drone Taxis.

These drones are designed to carry a passenger along with some luggage. Mattar Al Tayer, the chief of Dubai’s roads & transportation agency, has announced that this kind of drone taxis will be operational in Dubai from July 2017 to ferry travellers. The Ehang 184, ‘Made in China’ autopilot drone can carry a passenger for 30 minutes weighing over 220 pounds.

Test flights for the same have already been made and the prospects are looking very promising as the drone has a ‘fail-safe system’ which ensures passenger safety in an event of an emergency and immediately make a smooth landing.

The drone is powered by a battery which can go over half an hour and runs the drone at speeds up to 100 km/hr. The drone will be operated by a control room on the ground.

This initiative will certainly set a milestone for urban transportation all over the world.
