Self-driving shuttle crashes in Las Vegas hours after launch

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 shuttle, named Arma was struck by a delivery truck. No one was injured in the minor crash but passengers say the bus could have actually avoided the truck backing its way. The group will also survey riders before and after each trip to understand why the majority of Americans remain anxious about self-driving technology, and whether the shuttle experience changes their mind.

The driver of the semi truck was cited.

Driverless vehicles are being pegged as the future of transport.

Two hours after it was launched to much fanfare, a driverless, autonomous shuttle was bumped into by a human-driven delivery truck in Las Vegas.

A big public debut for a self-driving bus in Las Vegas turned out to be trouble.

The shuttle, which is being run through a partnership of vehicle company Navya and transportation firm Keolis, had already been through a successful controlled trial in Vegas.

Developed by French company Navya, it uses Global Positioning System, electronic kerb sensors and other technology to find its way at no more than 15mph. Safety features include the ability to automatically and immediately brake in the event of a pedestrian crossing in the path of the vehicle.

It uses a range of LIDAR sensors around the auto to create a 2D and 3D map of the world around it enabling it to see cars, pedestrians and cyclists.

If things had gone well the bus should have taken tourists and residents around a 0.6 mile loop of downtown Las Vegas.

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

The shuttle was built by a company called Navya.
