Self-driving shuttle collision mars Las Vegas debut
12 November, 2017, 02:12
The exact circumstances of the accident are unknown; we have no idea if the autonomous shuttle was simply unable to back up to avoid the accident or if there was another vehicle too close to the shuttle bus to allow it to reverse out of harm's way.
None of the eight passengers aboard the driverless vehicle suffered injuries and neither did the truck driver. Within an hour of starting its new expanded operation today, following a two-week pilot test back in January, the shuttle hit the front end of a large delivery truck as the human driver pulled out into the street from a loading bay.
While the optics of a self-driving shuttle getting into an accident nearly immediately after debuting aren't great, this particular situation was clearly caused by a human driver.
'The shuttle did what it was supposed to do, in that it's (sic) sensors registered the truck and the shuttle stopped to avoid the accident, ' Las Vegas officials said.

Las Vegas' self-driving shuttle service marked its return by getting into a minor collision.
The self-driven shuttle service as it hit the roads of Las Vegas. But wait! According to a AAA spokesman, it wasn't even the shuttle's fault. AAA chose Las Vegas for the launch because of the state's progressive regulations on autonomous vehicles, heavy investment in innovation, the high volume of visitors and a sunny, dry climate that's favorable for testing new driving technology.
Before it crashed, dozens of people had lined up to get a free ride on a 0.6-mile loop in downtown Las Vegas. To accommodate the shuttle, the city updated traffic lights and signals so they could communicate with the vehicle and adjust based on traffic flow. 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.
Passengers onboard the vehicle confirmed that the shuttle did stop ― but in the path of the truck.
