Lyft in conjunction with Aptiva announced that they will be giving rides in self-driving driving cars at CES 2018. Riders will have to depart at the Gold lot at the Las Vegas convention center and will have the opportunity to get dropped off at 20 different locations. Don’t worry riders, you will not be left alone without some precautions. There will be a safety driver in the front just in case something goes wrong and also a host that will provide an educational experience to the riders.
The goal is to showcase Lyft’s dispatching system that is being used with Aptiva’s open platform and feels they can be ready for wide scale production by 2019. This expands on what they did last year including drives along a ~6 mile loop if city and highway driving.
