Bus drives itself into trouble

On November 8, Las Vegas, a city in the United States, launched a very interesting pilot project. As part of the project, electric buses offer free rides in a part of the city. The really neat thing is that the buses are self-driving!

Unfortunately, within two hours of the start of the project, one of the driverless buses got into an accident with a truck. It turns out, though, that it was the truck with a driver that was at fault! The truck drove into the path of the bus. The bus’ sensors detected the truck and the bus stopped, but the truck continued to move, and hit the bus.

Las Vegas plans to continue with the project. So keep an eye out – there might be driverless vehicles in your neighborhood soon!
