We have already written about the Chinese unmanned drone-taxi called Ehang 184. Now the company has conducted the first public, and most importantly successful, flight with a man on board.

First start

Passenger drone drone Ehang 18 stayed in flight for 7 minutes. His first passenger was not an ordinary statistician, but the general director of the company's creator. The launch was attended by prominent Chinese politicians and deputy mayor of the city of Guangzhou, where they were tested.

Features of a drony-taxi

Ehang 184 is designed for short flights in large cities. The maximum distance of a flight with one passenger is 15 km or 20-23 minutes in a time range at an altitude of up to 300 meters. The maximum speed of the drone is 130 km / h. According to the creators, the designed design and special navigation programs make the Ehang 184 fearless to the wind, fogs, snow, rain and other bad weather. Despite the freaks of nature, an unmanned flying taxi will sit exactly in the specified place and not get off the road.

Future plans

Ehang 184 will rise in the summer sky of Dubai, and before that there will be a series of tests in Nevada. Mass production of passenger drones is planned to open this summer.
