First US Public Self-Driving Shuttle Launches In Las Vegas, In Accident Shortly Thereafter...

•, by Mark Kane

America's first public self-driving shuttle has launched in downtown Las Vegas using NAVYA Arma vehicle –  supplied from Michigan where 25 are to be build for North America customers by the end of 2017.

The shuttle pilot project will enable a quarter-million residents and visitors to Las Vegas a first-hand experience using autonomous vehicle over the course of a year.

Unfortunately, the shuttle was involved in a minor accident about an hour after it launched, when a truck backed into it (the shuttle was not found at fault, but probably could have done a better job avoiding this accident – more/video on that below).
