Las Vegas is the proving ground for automated vehicles (AV). Las Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world, and is also supported by a foundation of technical expertise that makes our city a place for residents and visitors alike to benefit from advanced transportation solutions. These new technologies will increase the safety and efficiency on our roadways and the city recognizes the importance of investing in, testing and deploying automated technologies.
Las Vegas is also an ideal location for AV testing since the climate and urban area is conducive to year-round deployments. The city uniquely provides urban scenarios which are important for testing such as pedestrian activity, including tourists and visitors; highly mixed physical capability population; highly mixed ethnic and socio-economic populations; porte cochere operations; high levels of pedestrian and vehicle traffic 24 hours per day, and roadways with a variety of physical characteristics. < Back to all
