UAE on track to roll out autonomous cars


Self-driving cars could hit the UAE’s roads as early as 2021.

That’s according to the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA), which is working on a draft law for regulating autonomous vehicles.

The plan was revealed at the International Conference on Future Mobility in Dubai.

ESMA’s Director-General, Abdulla Al Maeeni, spoke to ARN News.

If the legislation is approved, the UAE could become the first country in the world to have standards around driverless vehicles.
