Driverless auto involved in crash in first hour of first day

"The autonomous shuttle was testing today when it was grazed by a delivery truck downtown", the post stated.

Speaking of which, the main thing we're wondering is why the damn thing didn't back up when it sensed the truck getting too close-and one passenger apparently had the same reaction.

Technology onboard the Vegas shuttle was developed by Navya. Sponsored by AAA, the shuttle is intended less for its actual utility and more to get people used to the idea of driverless cars.

Navy ARMA's driverless bus will begin shuttling passengers along a half-mile route in downtown Las Vegas. "The shuttle did what it was supposed to do, in that it's sensors registered the truck and the shuttle stopped to avoid the accident", the statement read.

Gandhi has chosen Surat where he would interact with traders, weavers and workers affected by the note ban and the GST. The opposition was observing a "black day" on Wednesday.

It's touted by Las Vegas as the country's first autonomous shuttle that's able to communicate with traffic signals and surrounding "smart" infrastructure.

It does seem however that this technology is not quite ready yet though, after a self-driving bus crashed just two hours after launching.

The fully electric shuttle was designed for use by state and local governments and transit agencies and operators as an efficient, clean-energy alternative to the fossil-fuel powered vehicles of today. However, the autonomous shuttle was not at fault - the human driver of the other vehicle was to blame. In return, the company will donate $1 per every passenger who rides the shuttle to those affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas that took place in October. Self-driving vehicles aim to curb these human-related errors by automating the entire process, putting machines in control of what is now performed by humans. Testing of the shuttle will continue during the 12-month pilot in the downtown Innovation District. But the human driver pushed on through, scraping the front fender of the Arma shuttle. Police say no injuries were reported crash between the self-operating vehicle and a semi-truck.
