The Autonomous Shuttle is back at the University of Utah to participate in a study conducted by the Department of Psychology. The pilot project by The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) gives the public a first look at a completely autonomous vehicle (AV) — meaning there is no driver, steering wheel or pedals. The shuttle follows a pre-determined route but reacts to other vehicles, pedestrians, etc. in real-time as they are encountered.
Students, staff and faculty can hop on Utah’s first completely autonomous shuttle July 6 through September 4, 2020, from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. (excluding weekends).
The AV Shuttle stops at two locations: the Union and the Lassonde Studios. The shuttle loops around the Union parking lot and heads up Student Life Way towards the Lassonde Studios. This route also serves as a great connection to the Student Life Center and the TRAX Fort Douglas station.
