LAS VEGAS -- Tech supplier Aptiv, which is ferrying CES visitors and participants up and down the Strip in a fleet of driverless vehicles, plans to keep its robotaxi fleet here after the show concludes.
Aptiv executives said they will station a permanent fleet of taxis in Las Vegas to continue beta-testing the vehicles and their ride-hailing software.
The software, provided by Lyft, allows travelers to hail a taxi by using their smartphone. Once in the vehicle, the passengers choose one of 30 destinations listed on a tablet.
An Aptiv engineer monitors the vehicle's performance and manually steers the vehicle in hotel driveways.
