Soon Dubai will be witnessing driverless taxis in the streets, which any passenger can use for personal purposes. On Monday, Gitex Global’s first day, a testing model of the all-electric self-driving vehicle built on the Chevrolet Bolt platform, is on display.
A Red and white coloured hatchback car is built up on the cameras. Gitex Global 2022 also shared a video of a driverless taxi on display at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
A senior official of the RTA said that the fares of this self-driving car or driverless taxi would be affordable and easy on everyone’s pocket. The self-driving taxi will be easily accessible to everyone living in Dubai.
A senior official of the RTA said, “What’s more, the fare will be ‘affordable.”
Khali Al Awadhi, director of transportation systems Public Transport Authority, RTA, said, “The fare will be similar to that of a limousine service in Dubai.”
Driverless taxis are on the right path to reaching the target deadline starting in December this year.
Around five of these vehicles will be on the roads starting in December this year, doing the final testing and finishing the mapping services.
According to Dubai’s Public Transport Authority, the model on display at Gitex Global 2022 is testing one of the self-driving cars that will hit the streets by next year.
The final vehicle is anticipated to have four seats at the back facing each other.
Dubai will be the first city to witness Cruise autonomous vehicles operating outside the United States.
By December, UAE residents will be able to see the first driverless taxis in their testing phase in Jumeirah, around the City Walk area.
