The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has added another breakthrough technology in Dubai’s transport system—the driverless taxis, which seek to help commuters in Dubai reach their destinations faster and safer.

The technology was unveiled at the Gitex Technology Week, which began on October 14.

Mattar Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, said that the driverless taxis have top safety and security standards, and will run on dedicated routes at the Dubai Silicon Oasis.

He added that the taxis are equipped with cameras and sensors that fully view traffic and road conditions, control the vehicle and avoid collision.

Driverless taxis also aim to contribute to the implementation of the Dubai Smart Self-Driving Mobility Strategy that aims to transform 25% of Dubai’s total journeys into self-driving transit means by 2030.

“The ‘Autonomous taxi’ contributes to the integration of mass transport systems by facilitating the movement of public transport users, specifically Dubai Metro and Dubai Tram, to reach their final destinations (last mile),” said Al Tayer.
