On the occasion of the Abu Dhabi Smart Cities Summit, Bayanat of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) introduced the first fully self-driving taxi called TXAI.

Since March, the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport and Urban Affairs has cooperated with the artificial intelligence, data analysis and geospatial firm Bayanat of the G42 group to deploy the self-driving taxi project.

It is expected that from the end of November, the company will test a fleet of cars on the streets of the UAE, then will test a carpooling service on the island of Yas.

In the first phase of the project, there will be 5 passenger vehicles with 9 stops at hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and offices. Phase 2 will add more vehicles as well as many stops and pick up passengers in Abu Dhabi.

However, to ensure absolute safety during the test phase, the driver still sat in the driver’s seat of the taxi.
