Self-driving cars are the rave. But the city of Dubai is already thinking of smart, driverless public transportation. It has launched an autonomous transportation project with a goal to have a quarter of all transportation in the city be driverless by 2030.
The strategy is projected to:
- reduce transportation costs by 44 per cent
- reduce road accidents
- increase productivity by 13 per cent
- save people up to 396 millions of hours wasted during travel on roads yearly
