Driverless Shuttle Involved in Accident Mere Hours After it Launches

No one was injured in the minor crash but passengers say the bus could have actually avoided the truck backing its way.

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident and while it may appear a little embarrassing for the shuttle, which is part of a joint project of insurance giant AAA (American Automobile Association), transportation company Kelois and French tech firm Nayva, the blame is being placed exclusively on the delivery driver. Driver of truck was cited.

Navaya, a French company that operates a driverless shuttle on the campus of the University of MI in Ann Arbor, built the Las Vegas shuttle, Fox News reported. The statement finished by saying that had the truck used the same sensing equipment as the bus, the accident would have been avoided. This pilot builds on Keolis' limited shuttle launch in downtown Las Vegas in early 2017; today's launch will be the first self-driving vehicle to be fully integrated with a city's traffic infrastructure. The group will also survey riders before and after each trip to understand why the majority of Americans remain anxious about self-driving technology, and whether the shuttle experience changes their mind. Its vice-president of mobility solutions, Maurice Bell, said the bus will scoot through Las Vegas at no more than 15 miles per hour.

Before it crashed, dozens of people had lined up to get a free trip on a 0.6-mile loop around Fremont East, Las Vegas, including Nascar driver Danica Patrick and magic duo Penn and Teller.

The Las Vegas self-driving shuttle is a 12-month pilot project by AAA and Keolis, a transportation management company.

This shuttle bus can transport up to 15 people and was aimed to be used on the city's famous strip. Safety features include the ability to automatically and immediately brake in the event of a pedestrian crossing in the path of the vehicle. The first: autonomous vehicles are not foolproof, nor have they reached their full potential.
