Olli, the world’s first co-created, 3D printed, self-driving shuttle developed by Local Motors, has made its debut this week in the Californian city of Rancho Cordova.
Its the first city to test the business use for the shuttle.
As part of a three-month pilot project at the White Rock Corporate Campus business park, Olli is available to campus employees, as well as to the general public.
During the three-month pilot project, data will be gathered via rider surveys to understand the public’s sentiment regarding self-driving shuttles and the potential for congestion relief and better mobility.
Matt Rivett, Local Motors executive vice president, says: “One of Olli’s greatest assets is her versatility. Olli was designed with an eye on the future of mobility, knowing transportation needs are evolving in a variety of settings, including within the business community. This partnership with Rancho Cordova is definitely a milestone, and we anticipate that Olli will be embraced as the safe, user-friendly transportation option that she is.”
Local Motors is a ground mobility company that was founded in 2007.
