Uber could offer self-driving drone taxis

    优步研发空中无人出租车

    Forget self-driving cars, soon you could be travelling around the city in self-driving drones.

    The taxi-finding app Uber is researching the plausibility of using vertical* takeoff aircraft to fly its customers around cities.

    The technology could be available within a decade, according to Jeff Holden, head of products at Uber.

    The drones have fixed wings and motors that can hover, take off and land vertically.

    Holden said he has been researching the idea, so the company “can someday offer our customers as many options as possible to move around. Doing it in a 3-D way is an obvious thing to look at.”

    Holden said landing on top of buildings in cities would help reduce commuting* time and congestion* dramatically. He said the technology could be in use as soon as the next 10 years.(SD-Agencies)
