West Rouge Shuttle
The shuttle vehicle is the Local Motors Olli 2.0, the latest iteration of its 3D-printed, electric, self-driving shuttle. With a seating capacity of up to eight passengers, Olli is equipped with an accessibility ramp and a securement system for one wheelchair or mobility device at a time. It has audio and visual announcements both inside and outside the vehicle, and other features for rider information.
The shuttle is an automated vehicle (AV) that is mostly self-driving. A human attendant will be on-board at all times, capable of taking manual control at a moment’s notice and able to make decisions and guide alternate routes when the shuttle is uncertain about safety or ability to proceed.
Local Motors’ Olli 2.0 is equipped with redundant LiDar and radar sensors to analyse its surroundings and respond to road and traffic conditions around it. Paired with digital mapping of the route, the shuttle uses these tools to navigate the environment along a “virtual track” that is preprogrammed.
The shuttle will have a maximum speed of approximately 20 km/h while operating autonomously and may travel more slowly in some circumstances. When operating in manual mode it can travel up to 40 km/hour.
The Olli 2.0 vehicle has a single large door in the middle of the curb-side, and a manually operated ramp to enable wheeled access. Passengers use bench seating around the perimeter, with seatbelts for up to 8 people. However to help ensure safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, occupancy will be limited to 4 people. Due to safety considerations, all passengers must wear a seatbelt. There is space in the centre to secure one mobility device.
