FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) — Utah transportation officials are testing a driverless shuttle at a Farmington retail hub.
The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reported Monday that the robot vehicle will be operating at Station Park throughout May.
The autonomous vehicle is part of a joint pilot project between the Utah Department of Transportation and the Utah Transit Authority.
The shuttle will go to various communities statewide over the next year. It’s already scheduled to operate at The Canyons Resort in Park City, the University of Utah, a Salt Lake City business park and the Mountain America Expo Center in Sandy.
UDOT spokesman John Gleason said in a news release that the shuttle has no steering wheel or pedals. It will travel no more than 15 mph (24 kph) on a pre-determined route.
