Share

Adding to its reputation as a leader in experimental transportation, Dubai is hoping to launch autonomous air taxis capable of transporting people far above the city's traffic woes as soon as the middle of 2017. The Pilotless egg-shaped drone will transport you across the city and is in fact manufactured by the same Chinese company that produces the different variety of hi-tech drones with cutting edge technology. Passengers will not be able to control the drone but will simply be able to select the destination. The drone can carry one passenger weighing up to 100 kg (220 pounds) and has a 30 minute flight time. And it will have a range of just 50 kilometres (31 miles), or half an hour of flying time.

It has a battery capacity of 17KW and completely chargers within an hour via fast charging. If any of the components malfunctions or disconnects, the aircraft will immediately land in the nearest area to ensure the passenger's safety.

Trump Doesn't Understand Why Deal with Russia Eludes Him
Trump painted a picture of Putin "sitting behind his desk and he's saying, 'You know, I see what's going on in the United States". But the claim that Clinton gave 20 percent of America's uranium to Russian Federation is incorrect and clearly misleading.

Shang-wen Hsiao, co-founder and chief financial officer, said past year that he hoped the vehicles could be used as "flying taxis" in congested city areas. Already eight of the drones have been flown around Dubai for the tests. That futuristic system, envisioned by California-based Hyperloop One, would shoot travelers from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
