RTA in Dubai will showcase its all-electric self-driving cars at Gitex, this week. With the goal of achieving a quarter of all journeys in self-driving cars by 2030, it is an important step in Dubai’s ambition to become a global leader in autonomous transportation.
Other smart initiatives that the RTA will unveil at Gitex include an entry into the metaverse, a new generation of taxis, and smart stations. The RTA’s self-driving cars, known as Cruise vehicles, are based on the Chevrolet Bolt platform. These self-driving autonomous cars are currently in use in Cruise’s commercial fleet of self-driving cars in San Francisco. RTA, GM, and Cruise envision a safer and less congested future for all through autonomous vehicles, improving transportation safety and accessibility on a large scale.
