Trucker charged after crash with self-driving bus

A driverless bus was involved in a crash in downtown on Nov. 8 2017

The driverless shuttle bus was traveling on half-mile loops around the Nevada tourist retreat when a delivery truck came from an alley and snapped its front bumper, city spokesman Jace Radke was quoted by Independent as saying.

"We're seeing a change in technology that's fundamentally changing how people view transportation-it's changing mobility, and it's changing cars", says John Moreno, AAA's manager of public affairs.

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.

Justice Department Wants AT&T to Sell CNN, Turner or DirecTV
Without an agreement, the Justice Department would sue to block the merger - as soon as next week, one of the people said. Time Warner comprises 16.0% of Beach Point Capital Management LP's holdings, making the stock its 2nd largest position.

The oval-shaped electric vehicle, developed by the French company Navya, can transport up to 12 passengers, and has an attendant and computer monitor on board, but no steering wheel and no brake pedal.

The truck driver was cited by authorities over the accident, the city said.

The shuttle will remain out of service for the rest of the day. This pilot builds on Keolis' limited shuttle launch in downtown Las Vegas in early 2017; today's launch will be the first self-driving vehicle to be fully integrated with a city's traffic infrastructure. Data compiled by California show engineers disengage driverless cars hundreds of times a year during road tests, a measure of the vehicles' ability to function without human intervention, though those numbers are declining. AAA plans to donate $1 per passenger to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund, for a minimum of $100,000.

Roy Halladay's plane captured on cell phone video just before crash
Almost every memory began with a story about Halladay's legendary work ethic, his workout program and his early morning routine. On Halloween, he posted that flying it low over the water felt like piloting a fighter jet. "That's a recipe for disaster".

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.

A driverless shuttle made its debut in Las Vegas Wednesday with a bump. The first: autonomous vehicles are not foolproof, nor have they reached their full potential.

It happened at the intersection of Fremont Street and N. 7th Street.
