Oct. 17, 2019—Local Motors, AAA Northern California, and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority are partnering to test a 3-D printed autonomous vehicle shuttle, Olli.

The testing will take place at GoMentum Station in Contra Costa County with future plans of deployment near transit stations around Northern California. GoMentum Station is the largest closed-course testing facility for connected and automated vehicles in the United States.

The shuttle features cognitive response technology and sensors, and an obstacle avoidance system. Local Motors and AAA Northern California will continue testing for a year before piloted deployment options are considered in Contra Costa County.

Test engineers at AAA Northern California will challenge Olli on the various GoMentum Station tracks and undergo multiple testing scenarios including intersection crossing, interactions with pedestrians, and tunnel driving.
