The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors today reviewed a presentation on the outcomes of the public trial of the AVNU (“Autonomous Vehicle, Neighborhood Use”) shuttle. The pilot was the first autonomous shuttle on public roads for the public’s use in Virginia. During the 90-day pilot, which operated in and around Crozet, over 530 miles were driven autonomously and 750 passengers rode in the shuttle. The shuttle operated with an onboard safety ambassador, but during the pilot, there were no safety incidents and no interventions or safety disengagements occurred.
