"Unfortunately, the delivery truck did not stop and grazed the front fender of the shuttle", read the statement.

The crash happened within the shuttle's first hour of operation, according a report from local Las Vegas NBC affiliate KSNV.

The Navya Arma shuttle that was running in Vegas is equipped with specialized LiDAR sensors to map out the road around it, cameras to pick up obstacles in its path, and GPS so its operators can track it in real time, but none of those systems can control other drivers on the road. City officials were quick to throw the human under the.shuttle as well, with one even going so far as to tell KSNV News that the whole thing could have been avoided "had the truck had the same sensing equipment that the shuttle has". Sponsored by AAA, the shuttle is intended less for its actual utility and more to get people used to the idea of driverless cars.

It's touted by Las Vegas as the country's first autonomous shuttle that's able to communicate with traffic signals and surrounding "smart" infrastructure.

The city added it will continue operating the buses through Las Vegas' downtown area over the next year.

Nearly all the incidents recorded by Waymo, Google's autonomous vehicle arm, have been down to human drivers hitting the vehicles, and a major crash involving Uber's driverless cars in March was down to the driver of the other auto.

Why did they launch the self-driving shuttle? If a vehicle leaves its own lane and careens towards an autonomous shuttle such as this, will it simply stop and wait for the inevitable crash, or take evasive maneuvers as a human would?

The account also tweeted: 'We are at the forefront of technology'.

A driverless shuttle bus has crashed less than two hours after it launched in Las Vegas, after it stopped to avoid a collision and was "grazed" by a delivery truck.

A truck backed into the self-driving shuttle, causing a relatively minor crash with no injuries.
