Self-driving shuttle crashes on maiden voyage

That's a block away from Container Park.

The incident was due to "human error" after a truck failed to stop and backed into the bus. If the United States can successfully facilitate a safe transition to autonomous vehicles, "the benefits are quite compelling", Moreno says. "Where it rested is where it had stopped originally as the vehicle was making its turn".

It does seem however that this technology is not quite ready yet though, after a self-driving bus crashed just two hours after launching.

Officials had hosted an unveiling ceremony to promote what they described as the United States' first self-driving shuttle pilot project geared toward the public, as dozens of people lined up in downtown Las Vegas to get a free ride.

No one was hurt, and the truck was cited for illegal backing, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

However, a recent report from the RAND Corporation - a USA government think tank - has claimed that even the use of moderately capable self-driving cars would go a long way towards reducing the number of road deaths. "I just wanted back into the alley'".

Roseanne Barr once claimed in an interview that Louis C.K. has exposed himself to female writers and fellow comics. Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov were invited into Louis' hotel room during the U.S.

Before you think this proves that self-driving cars have no place in this world, the shuttle wasn't at fault for the accident.

Police gave the truck driver a citation.

According to Wong, this won't prevent her from riding the bus in the future.

The eight passengers inside the shuttle involved in the crash were all reported to have been wearing seat belts. And a study from the RAND Corporation published this week says that more self-driving cars using the now available technologies would make roads safer, and calls for more such vehicles to be introduced, the BBC report says.
