The self driving bus has some kinks to work out.
According to one passenger, the self-driving truck doesn’t have the ability to back up and that’s why it stopped when it sensed the truck coming. Now you’d think the bus would have a sensor in the back to let it know if it’s safe to back up…say to avoid a huge truck coming from the side. Is that too much to ask? Maurice Bell, an executive at Keolis Transit America (which helps operate the smart bus), said they now have more data to improve what went wrong with the bus. So, let’s hope they get it right next time.
