The Dubai government has launched a challenge for Dubai Self-Driving Transport Congress 2023 with a focus on self-driving buses. Candidates will compete for prizemoney amounting to $2.3 million.

The challenge is part of Dubai’s efforts to support its leading role in self-driving transport, and its commitment to transform 25 percent of total mobility journeys in Dubai into driverless ones by 2030. In February, Dubai announced it will begin trials for driverless taxis and e-hailing services this year, making it one of the first cities outside the US to operate such vehicles.

With its favourable business legislation and forward-looking mindset, the UAE has become a test ground for new tech.
