While the shuttle remained out of service for the rest of the day, the tests are set to continue for the duration of the 12-month pilot in the downtown Innovation District, officials say. One such autonomous vehicle, a shuttle in Las Vegas, was recently involved in a wreck.

Interestingly however, most collisions involving autonomous technology is attributed to some form of human error.

Its 50 shuttles have already transported nearly 200,000 passengers since it first started across a range of public and private sites.

But, just an hour into its year-long trial (which follows a successful stint in January) the shuttle was hit by a delivery truck that was backing up.
