Autonomous shuttles are emerging as key players in providing mobility services across neighborhoods, campuses and urban city centers.
Anthony Davis wrote a Highways Today story that quoted Vikrant Aggarwal, President, Local Motors, saying:
“We selected Velodyne’s sensors after a rigorous evaluation process where they clearly stood out as the right strategic partner to address our long-term lidar needs. Velodyne’s technology leadership gives us confidence we will always have the latest lidar technology to help ensure safety in our vehicles. We look forward to co-evolving our product offerings to address more use cases in the autonomous mobility space.”
A Yahoo! Finance story quoted Laura Wrisley, Vice President of North American Sales, Velodyne Lidar, saying:
“With Olli, Local Motors is empowering communities to redefine local transportation and create opportunities for people with mobility challenges. Our sensors provide the much-needed data for Olli’s critical safety features. Local Motors is a valued customer that is open and easy to collaborate with in addressing their lidar needs. The insights from Local Motors on our product development and prototypes have been very helpful in shaping our sensor portfolio to enable safer autonomous driving.”
Look for self-driving shuttles like Olli to act as connectors in multimodal transportation networks. They can complement mobility ecosystems by providing first-mile, last-mile solutions which address transportation gaps and inefficiencies.
