Shut­tle cock-up

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

A self-driv­ing shut­tle sim­i­lar to ones be­ing tri­alled in Melbourne and Perth has been in­volved in an ac­ci­dent in Las Ve­gas less than an hour af­ter it hit the streets. The shut­tle was struck by a re­vers­ing truck; no one was hurt. A City of Las Ve­gas rep­re­sen­ta­tive claimed the shut­tle “did what it was supposed to do, in that its sen­sors reg­is­tered the truck and the shut­tle stopped to avoid the ac­ci­dent.” The state­ment went on to point out that “had the truck had the same sens­ing equip­ment that the shut­tle has, the ac­ci­dent would have been avoided.”
