We no longer have to imagine a world where cars drive themselves. In Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, robotic shuttles are already a reality. Madsar’s net zero energy community is on the front line of innovative technology with a special focus on the environment.

Built by Dutch manufacturer 2getthere, the autonomous electric vehicles are guided point to point utilizing overhead RFID and magnet sensors to shuttle through the net zero energy community. Masdar can expect their new robotic shuttles to go 25 miles per hour.
