Taxi drones set for July launch of passenger service over Dubai

"This is not only a model", Mr al-Tayer. It's a 500-pound personal aircraft, with room for one passenger weighing up to 100 kilograms (220 pounds) and a small suitcase in a separate compartment.

According to the company's website, Ehang 184 AAV is the safest, smartest and eco-friendly low altitude autonomous aerial vehicle, aiming on providing medium-short distance communication and transportation solution.

"I would like to see the drone flying for at least 1000 hours before I saw a human in it". He said the drone would begin regular operations in July.

Eddie Jones predicts changes for England's Six Nations clash with Italy
England made it 16 victories on the bounce, putting them three short of overtaking New Zealand's world-record figure, as wing Elliot Daly's 75th-minute try broke Welsh hearts.

Nevertheless, as per Engadget, it's still unclear whether any of the experimental flights actually boarded a real person inside it, although of course, it's still worth mentioning that Dubai will have the bragging rights as the first city to regularly operate such vehicles. It has a seat that appears to be out of a race auto and destinations are chosen from the touchpad screen of the craft.

There's only one touch screen provided in the drone with no other controls inside the craft.

According to Associated Press, the Chinese-made EHang 184 has a top speed of 160 kph (100 mph), but authorities say it will be operated typically at 100 kph (62 mph). The battery of the drone allows for a 23-minute flying time. The drone can be remotely controlled by a control room on the ground and has a top speed of 100 miles per hour.

Celta also hit the post before the break through Jozabed in an entertaining end-to-end encounter played in torrential Madrid rain. Celta Vigo then took the lead in the 78th minute as Daniel Wass teed up John Guidetti, who calmly slotted into the bottom corner.

The drone itself, introduced at CES 2016 and tested in Nevada, uses a four-rotor design and is capable of carrying up to 100kg or an individual passenger and limited cargo.

Dubai, which already has a driverless metro system, is trying to meet a lofty goal of alleviating congestion in the city.
