Visitors to Las Vegas' CES gadget show are taking self-driving taxi rides around "Sin City."


Taking a taxi through Las Vegas doesn't sound all that futuristic. But this one is driving itself.

Ride-hailing company Lyft is teaming up with mobility tech firm Aptiv to bring a public commercial autonomous vehicle service to Vegas.

A safety driver occupies the front seat, but the car uses Aptiv's autonomous driving platform to change lanes, turn and more.

Having clocked up almost 30,000 paid rides since launch, developers are now working on making the experience "more human", such as giving extra space to nearby vehicles, so passengers feel more comfortable.
