The all-electric, self-driving shuttle offers free rides for people to experience autonomous transportation in a real-world environment. The shuttle is the country’s first autonomous shuttle to be fully integrated with “smart-city” infrastructure/traffic signals to improve safety and traffic flow.
This project is a Public-Private Venture with partners Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, Keolis, Navya, and AAA. Technology partners included Trafficware (traffic signal controllers) and Commsignia (DSRC).
- Provide transit options that will connect the suburban neighborhoods to the urban downtown destinations, circulate within the downtown core, and encourage use of alt. modes of transportation once downtown.
- Workforce development with technical training for technologies that need to be deployed in support of connected and autonomous vehicles.
- Provide opportunity to as many residents and visitors to learn more about new forms of mobility (i.e. driverless vehicles)
- Provide a more convenient, safe, and enjoyable modal option for residents and visitors.
The driverless shuttle is the country’s first public autonomous shuttle to be fully integrated with “smart city” infrastructure, which means it communicates vehicle-to-infrastructure (i.e. Roadside DSRC). The connection to city infrastructure has the potential to improve traffic safety and traffic flow.
