Las Vegas, US is piloting AVs
In 2011, Nevada became the first U.S. state to adopt laws specifically permitting the operation of autonomous vehicles. In similar fashion, the state’s largest city, City of Las Vegas, held the first public trial of an AV transit vehicle in January 2017 in the city’s newly designated Innovation District. Over a two-week period, a 12-passenger NAVYA ARMA vehicle provided free daytime rides on a three-block stretch of Fremont Street connecting Las Vegas Boulevard and Downtown Container Park, the epicenter of a tech-driven revitalization in the city’s aging core. Officials hope to have a second on-street deployment in late 2017.
