Self-driving bus crashes two hours after launch in Las Vegas. Well, back to the drawing board.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the human driver of the other vehicle was at fault, there were no injuries, and the incident caused minor damage.
The oval-shaped shuttle -- sponsored by AAA, the Review-Journal added -- can transport up to 12 passengers at a time. It has an attendant and a computer monitor, and uses GPS and electric curb sensors instead of brake pedals or a steering wheel.
But if it hit a pedestrian or bicyclist, might have been a different story.  Also, what are the backups if all or part of it's sensor system fails?  Because they will.
                                           Kinda cute little devil.
