CES 2014: Stepping in front of a robot shuttle vehicle

7 January 2014 Last updated at 09:34 GMT

BBC technology correspondent Mark Ward has risked life and limb by walking in front of a moving vehicle.

The danger to his health was not as great as it might have seemed because the shuttle bus in question was controlled by a computer that uses lasers to map its surroundings and avoid crashes.

The vehicle - called Navia - was built by the French firm Induct, which is showing off the technology at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
