Dubai is full of surprises. The Dubai’s Roads and Transport Agency has announced the launch of Ehang184, a Passenger Drone, which will begin its regular operation from July this year.

The drone will be able to carry one passenger weighing up to 100kg, with room for a small suitcase. Passenger will be using a touch screen to select their destination. The drone will then be auto piloted, directed and monitored via a command center. The drone can stay airborne for 30 minutes on one charge, it will be covering a distance of 40 to 50km, at speeds of up to 100km an hour.
