Beep and Local Motors Announce Strategic Partnership

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Beep, a Florida-based autonomous mobility-as-a-service provider, and Local Motors, a digital vehicle manufacturer, have announced a strategic partnership and new reseller agreement. The collaboration is intended to significantly expand the number of autonomous vehicle shuttles on both public and private roads, enabling Beep and Local Motors to bring autonomous solutions to more people and enhance the rider experience through continued testing and safe deployments.

Under the reseller agreement, Local Motors will provide Beep with Olli 2.0 autonomous, electric, 3D-printed shuttles for future customer deployments. Beep and Local Motors will also team up to advance and expand the operating domain of multipassenger, autonomous vehicles in concert with their ongoing testing and information-sharing program through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Olli 3D-printed shuttle is currently deployed at universities, business parks, and local communities throughout the U.S. and in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. It uses seven lidar sensors, four radar sensors, and 10 optical cameras to detect obstacles and pedestrians.
