  • A Human Driver Crashed Into Las Vegas's Driverless Shuttle In Its First Hour Of Service

The shuttle's sensors registered the truck and performed the correct actions, the rep said, by stopping to avoid the accident.

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

The autonomous shuttle was testing today when it was grazed by a delivery truck downtown. The shuttle, made by the French company Navya ARMA, began a route looping it around Vegas's downtown.

The driverless electric shuttle in downtown Las Vegas, pictured on November 9, 2017, is back on the road one day after it was involved in an accident with a truck.

While the shuttle remained out of service for the rest of the day, the tests are set to continue for the duration of the 12-month pilot in the downtown Innovation District, officials say. "Unfortunately the human element, the driver of the truck, didn't stop".

The pause was necessary to "review and reflect on the loss of a young life", the university said in a statement Monday. They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.

AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah (AAA) is sponsoring the nation's first self-driving shuttle pilot project geared specifically for the public.

Earlier today, Las Vegas became the first city in America to have a free, electric, self-driving shuttle enter operation.

The eight-passenger shuttle is now offering free rides to people along a half-mile loop in the city's Fremont East "Innovation District".

The shuttle service in Las Vegas is allowed to carry 15 passengers at a time, ferrying them from one place of the town to another. The shuttle is operated and maintained by Keolis, which also led the efforts to integrate its vehicle into the smart-city infrastructure, in partnership with the city of Las Vegas and NAVYA. Las Vegas and its partners AAA and Keolis were reminded of that shortly after the shuttle took its first trip down its 0.6-mile, three stop loop up and down the strip.

Nearly all the incidents recorded by Waymo, Google's autonomous vehicle arm, have been down to human drivers hitting the vehicles, and a major crash involving Uber's driverless cars in March was down to the driver of the other auto.
