Forget self-driving cars, the next big thing may be a “self-flying” passenger drone. And, it could be flying above a major city as soon as this summer.
The head of the Dubai Roads and Transportation Authority this week unveiled a passenger-carrying drone as a way to move people around the United Arab Emirates’ biggest city. Officials said flights could begin in July.
The Associated Press reports the drone type being pursued for Dubai’s passenger service is the Chinese-made EHang 184, “an egg-shaped craft with four legs sticking out, each with two small propellers.”
