Unmanned taxi service earned in DubaiOctober 18, 2018
The launch of the first autonomous taxi service in the city was announced by Dubai’s municipal road transport agency. Cruise drone will be in the area of the local Silicon Valley.
The plans of the Dubai authorities are ambitious: by 2030, 25% of trips around the city must make drones. The first unmanned taxi begins to run in the area of Dubai Silicon Oasis, according to a publication from the Emirates, rta.ae.
So far, using the drone will solve problems associated with the first and last miles, when you need to get to a strictly defined point, and you can make short trips between the districts and get to the entertainment venues, said RTA Director General of the Public Transport Agency Ahmed Bahrosian.
The autopilot system of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class consists of sensors, cameras and radars. A drone scans and detects surrounding objects, and also controls any object that represents a potential hazard to a collision.
Test the car will be within three months. It can drive at a speed of up to 35 km / h, and the cabin comfortably accommodates four people, including the driver. The driver must take control if a technical failure occurs in the car. To do this, you just need to press a button that switches modes from autonomous to human-controlled.
