 Lyft will deploy 30 autopilot cars in Las Vegas


The Las Vegas Sun reported on Thursday that LYFT and Aptiv will run autopilot BMW at the international consumer electronics show, which was successfully held in January. BMW 5 Series cars will be shuttling between the Las Vegas convention center and all kinds of holiday villages. Las Vegas science and technology innovation director Michael Sherwood (MichaelSherwood) said that Las Vegas is working with Aptiv to extend the route to the city center. Sherwood said the two companies are planning to set a starting date in July or August, and the route may change. Through the Lyft application, customers can drive BMW with autopilot like any other car. GlenDeVos, chief technology officer of Aptiv, said: this is the next important step for Aptiv to realize the commercialization of on-demand automatic mobility in a deliberate, prudent and secure manner. Security is still our top priority. We will deploy this fleet slowly and safely, and collect data and insights in the process of deployment. Worster said in a statement that each car will be equipped with a well-trained operator. Aptiv is planning to collaborate with the city in designing other transportation options, with the aim of benefiting the public transport system and overcoming urban congestion. Worster said: at Aptiv, our goal is to make a safer, greener and more interconnected future a reality -- and that is a step closer to us.
