Self-Driving Shuttle Shows Off in Times Square
"Coast Autonomous, a new entry in the crowded self-driving vehicle market, kicked off a day of demonstrations on Broadway in New York’s crowded Times Square," reports Jeremy Kaplan. The company chose the location in part to showcase its confidence in the technology.
"Coast’s first vehicle, called the P-1 Shuttle, is a bi-directional van that looks normal from the outside," writes Kaplan. "Inside, it’s basically a bathtub on wheels, with no seats for a driver or passengers and no space for a driver at all."
