Local Motors is partnering with Robotic Research on Olli, an electric, autonomous shuttle. The partnership with Robotic Research is the latest integration of a new technology partner and showcase of Local Motors’ open development platform.
The partnership between the companies is symbiotic, with the partners working side-by-side to integrate new sensor sets, technology and applications, allowing for quick learnings and technology development.
Robotic Research is known for providing robust autonomous mobility and ancillary technologies for the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security.
Within the last three years, Robotic Research has been transitioning its autonomous technology to autonomous transportation applications, starting with the ARIBO program at Fort Bragg.
To date, Robotic Research has driven 10s of thousands of miles autonomously in some of the harshest environments around the world.
Today, Robotic Research lends its technical expertise and proving grounds to the development of Local Motors’ self-driving shuttle, Olli.
