    Self-driving bus involved in crash less than two hours after Las Vegas launch

    t took less than two hours for Las Vegas’s brand new self-driving shuttle to end up in a crash on Wednesday – thanks to a human.

    The autonomous bus made its debut on public roads around the so called Innovation District in downtown Las Vegas in front of cameras and celebrities, dubbed America’s first self-driving shuttle pilot project geared toward the public. But within two hours it had already been involved in a minor crash with a lorry. No injuries were reported.

    Yeah, they always blame the human. But it there had been a human in charge of the shuttle, he could have honked or backed up.

    Same here. A human would have slowed down and honked.
