Driverless cars trialed in Dubai
Driverless cars are in Dubai.
The biggest talking point in tech right now is being trialing this week at the second Mena Transport Congress and Exhibition.
The box-like vehicles will run exhibitors between sites on pre-programmed routes, carrying up to 10 passengers at one time.
Built around a high-tech sensor system, the cars are fitted with a number of safety features in line with traditional automobiles.
Should the trial prove successful, it is anticipated the vehicles could be rolled out in major tourism hotspots around Dubai to help ease congestion, as well as at the Expo 2020 site. Their arrival is in line with the emirate's move to becoming a Smart City.
The vehicles, named EZ10, have been created by EasyMile, a French company and joint venture between Ligier Group and Robosoft.
