Mike Blasky, PR at AAA, wrote on Twitter: "Truck making delivery backed into shuttle, which was stopped. " The shuttle aims to provide a quarter of a million visitors and residents of Las Vegas with the chance to ride a self driving vehicle.Human error causes most traffic collisions and this was no different. The pilot also wants to survey riders to see if they are wary of driverless technology and whether taking part in the scheme changes their mind.California’s DMV posts all automated car incidents, including collisions, on its website.This year alone, Cruise has been involved in 14 accidents around San Francisco, including one incident when another vehicle hit the back of a Cruise car."The shuttle did what it was supposed to do, in that it's sensors registered the truck and the shuttle stopped to avoid the accident."Unfortunately the delivery truck did not stop and grazed the front fender of the shuttle.The tests are taking place in Coventry, where the company is headquartered.They are part of the £20m UK Autodrive project which is a government-backed competiton to trial autonomous vehicle technology.
The driver of the truck was issued a ticket by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.Our Autonomous Urban Drive research is Jaguar Land Rover's next step in our development of both fully and semi-autonomous vehicle technologies." With the launch of the trials, Coventry joins 12 other cities which are carrying out self-driving vehicle tests on public roads globally.In Arizona, Google's Waymo has already launched driverless Chrysler Pacifica minivans.The AAA wants to explore how other people on the street react to the autonomous vehicle too.
The shuttle has Li DAR technology, GPS, cameras and can seat up to 8 passengers with seatbelts."Testing this self-driving project on public roads is so exciting, as the complexity of the environment allows us to find robust ways to increase road safety in the future.
