Las Vegas begins pilot of electric self-driving shuttle bus

While the numbers for CES 2017 haven't been unveiled, it's probably safe to say that the convention attendance is likely going to eclipse last year's mark that saw over 100,000 people attend. Now that the crowds have died down and the out-of-towners have gone home, it only seems appropriate that Las Vegas would unveil some tech for the city with its pilot of a self-driving shuttle bus.

Las Vegas unveiled its first self-driving shuttle bus, Arma, that was unveiled to the public on Tuesday. The shuttle was developed by Navya and can hold up to a dozen passengers and travels up to speeds of 12 MPH. Although the shuttle can ramp up to speeds of 27MPH, the company has limited the speed during its trial run. The unmanned shuttle will be offering free rides to those that are curious, making trips up East Fremont Street between Las Vegas Boulevard and 8th Street. The shuttle will operate during the hours of 10am and 6pm, and will do so until January 20.
