Kanye West is making headlines once again, this time with an audacious plan to create a self-sustaining city in the Middle East that will be twice the size of New York City. The project, named DROAM, is said to be 100,000 acres in size and was revealed by the controversial celebrity on X, formerly known as Twitter.

West took to the social media platform to reveal his grand plans for DROAM and explained that he was seeking collaborators, including engineers, architects, project managers, and builders. However, alongside the star’s grand announcement, reports also surfaced about West’s Los Angeles church, acquired for $1.5 million back in March, now in a neglected state and with boarded-up windows.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
