World's First Autonomous Flying Taxi - Ehang

Autonomous Flying Taxi

Chinese UAV company named Ehang has unveiled what could be the world's first flying taxi. The drone is named as Ehang 184 drone and is essentially a giant quadcopter designed to carry a single passenger and it needs no pilot. Inside the cockpit, there are no controls, no joystick, no steering wheel, no buttons, switches, or control panels just a seat and a small table stand.

To fly it, the user simply hops into the cockpit, starts the accompanying app, chooses a destination and then just sits back and enjoys the ride. This also means there's no need for a pilot's license to use it.
