Driverless Bus Crashes on First Day

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

The pilot project will test how the self-driving shuttle fares as part of the city's transportation network while exposing the public to driverless technology.

"The autonomous shuttle was testing today when it was grazed by a delivery truck downtown", a City of Las Vegas representative said, per KSNV-TV.

Police gave the truck driver a citation. The Kelolis driverless shuttle bus crashed with a semi-truck.

"Unfortunately, the delivery truck did not stop and grazed the front fender of the shuttle", read the statement. One of them, Jenny Wong, told local broadcaster KLAS that it appeared that the truck driver hadn't seen the shuttle and continued to back up.

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 driverless future is coming.

The vehicle was using self-driving technology developed by French company Navya, and typically travels at about 15 miles per hour as it carries people along the Las Vegas strip. Safety features include the ability to automatically and immediately brake in the event of a pedestrian crossing in the path of the vehicle. They will also examine how pedestrians, cyclists, and other cars react to it. If the U.S. can successfully facilitate a safe transition to autonomous vehicles, "the benefits are quite compelling", Moreno says.

A day that was supposed to be a welcome one for autonomous vehicle advocates has turned into quite a bad one with news that a self-driving shuttle bus has crashed with several passengers on board.

The eight-seater vehicle, started as a pilot of Las Vegas' smart city infrastructure, experienced a minor collision after a delivery lorry reversed into it. As an incentive to testing out the shuttle, AAA is donating $1 to the Las Vegas Victims Fund for every rider that gets on the shuttle.
