Recently, Aptiv a global automotive parts technology company focused on future mobility, announced a partnership with Lyft to demonstrate a full scale experience for self-driving cars. Both companies are offering rides to 20 pre-determined destinations throughout Las Vegas from January 9th until January 12th. Passengers will be able to request these self-driving rides from the gold lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center making this for a CES attendee only experience.

 

For those wondering if this is completely safe throughout the massively busy time of CES, stress not, as the demonstration of the self-driving car experience will be accompanied by a human "safety driver" located behind the wheel in-case anything does go wrong.

 

Kevin Clark, Aptiv President and Chief Executive has said that this demonstration of self-driving cars is to represent a real-life implication of self-driving cars into human life, also that the demonstration shows off automated driving technology.
