The Ehang 184 is an autonomous, passenger drone capable of reaching over 62 mph (100 km/h). Ehang says it started carrying passengers in 2015 and since made 40 journeys till releasing footage in February 2018. In three years, more than 1,000 test flights were conducted, including some “violent” ones with dummies, in storm-force winds, in low visibility, at night and 1,000 ft (300 m) above the ground. It has eight propellers on four arms and by July 2018, 30 to 40 single pilot EHang 184 have been built.
The 184 AAV is designed with full redundancy – If one set of the power system are operating abnormal, the vehicle can still operate a normal flight plan and ensure the safety of the passenger together with the vehicle.
The 184 was designed to be a 100% with green technology, and is powered by electricity only.

Ehang UAVs are a series of UAVs developed by the Chinese company Beijing Yi-Hang Creation Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (Ehang, Chinese: 北京亿航创世科技有限公司) which have entered service in China for aerial cinematography, photography, and survey missions.
In January 2016, Ehang announced new drones capable of carrying passengers, in a world first accomplishment. The company announced plans with Dubai’s Road & Transportation Agency in 2017 to launch an autonomous flying-taxi service starting in the summer of 2017, though as of November 2017 there have been no news about such launch. The company has also worked with a project with Nevada’s Institute for Autonomous Systems for a drone taxi that can transport a single passenger for up to 23 minutes with the EHang 184 drone.
Ehang 184 was introduced in 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, and became the world’s first passenger drone.
