Electric shuttle bus returning to downtown Las Vegas roads

A driverless shuttle bus being tested in Las Vegas was involved in a crash an hour into its first day on the job - although it wasn't the vehicle's fault.

According to the Review-Journal, police ticketed the driver for "illegal backing".

A representative for the city of Las Vegas said the shuttle was grazed by a delivery truck.

The Navya Arma shuttle that was running in Vegas is equipped with specialized LiDAR sensors to map out the road around it, cameras to pick up obstacles in its path, and GPS so its operators can track it in real time, but none of those systems can control other drivers on the road.

The bus, just minding its own business, stopped the moment it saw the truck but was sadly unable to avoid the rather considerable scraping it received.

The crash, apparently, was not the shuttle's fault. Testing of the shuttle will continue during the 12-month pilot in the downtown Innovation District.

On casualty estimates, Dumont said the numbers will depend largely on the nature, intensity and duration of a North Korean attack. Rear Admiral Michael Dumont expressed the opinion on behalf of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in a letter to Congressman Ted Lieu.

Created to carry up to 15 people at a time, the shuttle has a max speed of 45km/h and has been created to be fully capable of driving on public roads. "Unfortunately, the delivery truck did not stop and grazed the front fender of the shuttle". Everything passed after a couple of laps and a final run with AAA, the shuttle bus' sponsor, Bell said. 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 shuttle operates on a 0.6-mile loop around downtown Las Vegas and offers free rides to both locals and visitors.

A driverless shuttle bus was in a auto accident the first day the electric vehicle was being tested in Las Vegas.

A spokesman for the City of Las Vegas told the BBC: "A delivery truck was coming out of an alley".

The shuttle can be boarded at any of the autonomous-vehicle shuttle's three stops located on Fremont Street and Carson Street between Las Vegas Boulevard and 8 Street.
