There are still decades for urban air mobility. However, advances in electric propulsion, autonomous flight technology and 5G communication networks will soon generate commercial services for unmanned aircraft. Therefore, will add a new dimension to the urban transport of the future with drones for passengers.
The fleet manufacturers Airbus, Boieng and Embraer, the California startup Uber and companies specialized in autonomous flying vehicles, have already very advanced projects, some of which they say will be in pilot test next year.
The flagship autonomous vehicle pilot projects will start operating in cities. For example, in Dubai, Singapore, Los Angeles and Dallas in early 2020. According to its forecasts, around 3,000 passengers will use drones by 2025.
