3D printed au­ton­o­mous shut­tle

Autocar - - INSIGHT -

Olli is a self-driv­ing au­ton­o­mous taxi de­vel­oped by US firm Local Mo­tors. It fea­tures two 3D-printed car­bon­fi­bre shells mounted onto a man­u­fac­tured chas­sis and is ca­pa­ble of a 25mph top speed and a 40-mile range. Be­cause it is 3D-printed, it can take just three months to de­sign and man­u­fac­ture a new shell.

A scheme has been launched to crowd­source ideas on how to open Olli, and mo­bil­ity in gen­eral, to all.

WHEN IS IT DUE?

Olli is run­ning now and you can sug­gest ideas to make it bet­ter us­ing the hash­tag #Ac­ces­si­ble­olli.
