Drone able to transport humans shown at Consumer Electronics Show by Chinese drone company

At CES 2016 in Las Vegas, Chinese UAV company EHang has shown a drone which can transports humans.

However, there is no actual footage of a human actually flying around inside of the EHang 184 drone.

EHang said that the drone will be totally automated, meaning passengers will input a destination and have no control during the flight. The company says this will make the machine safer by eliminating “the most dangerous part of standard modes of transportation, human error.”




EHang was founded in 2014 and has raised about $50 million in venture funding.

The drone is about four-and-a-half feet tall, weighs 440 pounds, and will be able to carry a single passenger for 23 minutes at a speed of 60 MPH. The 184 also has gull-wing doors and arms that fold up.
