Autonomous flying cars may seem like an image out of a science fiction movie, but the technology already physically exists: Dubai began testing electric taxi drones in September 2017.
Dubai is aiming to become the world’s first city to have passenger-carrying drones operating in its skies. Speaking at a summit in the city on Monday the Emirate’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said they are on track to launch them by July.
Uber China (not global Uber) is merging with Didi Chuxing. These are the two biggest ride-sharing services in China, and they’re becoming one. This news is really about the ride-sharing wars, and not so much about autonomous vehicles.
But a lot of people believe that autonomous vehicles and ride-sharing services will be integrated in the future, so it seems worth noting.
