In partnership with Emaar Properties, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has trialled the first autonomous 10-seater vehicle on a 700m track on Dubai's Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard.

As explained by H.E. Mattar Al Tayer, director general, RTA, the smart transport system was designed by Easy Mile and Omnix International to travel short distances on pre-programmed routes in multi-use environments.

As well as meeting all safety requirements, EZ10 is fitted with a sensor and intelligent system, enabling it to adapt to sudden changes in order to avoid collisions.

Al Tayer added that the innovative solutions form part of Dubai's strategy of switching 25 percent of all mobility journeys to driverless trips by 2030.
