First US Autonomous Shuttle in Collision on First Day

  • A driverless bus was involved in a crash in downtown on Nov. 8 2017

Its vice-president of mobility solutions, Maurice Bell, said the bus will scoot through Las Vegas at no more than 15 miles per hour.

A new self-driving bus crashed on its first day of service in Las Vegas, as self-driving cars increasingly consume the world of transportation.

Jenny Wong, a passenger on the shuttle at the time of the crash, told local news station KSNV: "The shuttle just stayed still".

The Las Vegas Review Journal said that police determined that the shuttle came to a brief stop when it sensed the truck was trying to back up.

"The shuttle did its job in that the sensors hit on the truck, knew the truck was coming and stopped as it was supposed to do. It's going to hit us.' And then it hit us". "Unfortunately the human element, the driver of the truck, didn't stop".

Supporters of self-driving cars argue that they will reduce traffic accidents because they remove human error. City spokesman Jace Radke said the bus completed two more trips after the crash.

The driver of the lorry which crashed with the bus was subsequently given a ticket.

The self-driving bus, developed by Navya, does not have brake pedals or a steering wheel.

An autonomous shuttle operating in Las Vegas has gotten off to a shaky start.

In addition to studying how the shuttle interacts in a live traffic environment in downtown Las Vegas' busy Innovation District, AAA will survey riders on their experience in order to understand why a large percentage of consumers remain wary of driverless technology, and whether a personal experience changes their perception.

It's the first time the shuttles have been tested in the United States but they have already arrived in London, where the former Olympic park in Stratford began a trial by Navya and Keolis in September.

Navya has a fleet of 50 autonomous shuttle buses deployed worldwide, and says that it has carried over 200,000 passengers so far.
