Las Vegas Tests Driverless Buses

The electric buses, developed by Paris-based company Navya, hold a dozen passengers and operate at speeds of up to 27 mph. They use GPS technology to navigate and radar technology to detect and avoid obstacles in the road, and can last from five to 13 hours between charges depending on traffic conditions and other factors. The buses will be free to ride until the trial ends on Jan. 20, and then could be back on the road in full effect by late summer to early fall.​
