Dubai ruler says self-driving cars to be on emirate’s roads ‘in near future’
Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has said on his personal Twitter account that self-driving passenger cars will be present on UAE roads in the near future.
“Today we have adopted a strategy for self-driving transport. By 2030, 25 per cent of all transportation trips in Dubai will be smart and driverless. The strategy is projected to generate economic revenues and savings of up to Dh22 billion a year,” he said.
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) are currently testing the efficiency of electric and self-driving vehicles, according to local media.
The project was inspired after Sheikh Mohammad launched the Dubai Smart Self-Driving vision in 2016.
Dubai’s aim is to make 25% of transportation to be self-driven by 2030.
