The future is here: Dubai switches to driverless taxis


From 2023, Dubai (UAE) will begin to switch to unmanned taxis. The deliveries of such vehicles will be carried out by the American company Cruise, a division of General Motors.

Crown Prince of Dubai Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced this on Twitter.

According to him, Cruise will deliver 4,000 Origin unmanned shuttles to Dubai by 2030, and the first deliveries will begin in 2023. Self-driving cars are projected to account for 25% of all travel by 2030.

Note, Cruise was founded in 2013, and in 2016 it was bought by General Motors. The company is currently testing self-driving electric vehicles in the United States, and San Francisco will be the first city to offer self-driving taxi services.

Let us remind you that last year an air taxi of Airbus Helicopters made its first free flight. The CityAirbus is capable of airlifting four people and traveling at a speed of 120 km / h. Paris will try to launch the project to ensure that it is operational by the 2024 Olympics.
