AutomobilityLA Day 2: Local Motors presents their intelligent electric bus Olli

On day two of Automobillity LA 2016, major automakers are showing off their latest cars and technology. While in terms of crowd powered mobility, Local Motors CEO Jay Rogers proudly introduced their product Olli — their first cognitive, autonomous electric vehicle with IBM Watson technology.

                                    

The small bus can carry up to 12 people and is the first vehicle to utilize the cloud-based cognitive computing capability of IBM to analyze and learn from high volumes of transportation data, produced by 30 sensors embedded throughout the vehicle. Meanwhile, Olli helps reduce the output of emissions in dense urban areas and helps cut down on noise pollution.

For passengers, they can just use the phone to book a trip with Olli. Furthermore, passengers can interact conversationally with Olli while traveling from point A to point B, or even ask Olli about recommendations on local places of interest and popular restaurants.

"Olli offers a smart, safe and sustainable transportation solution that is long overdue. It with Watch Internet of Things (IoT) technology acts as our entry into the world of self-driving vehicles. We are now ready to accelerate the adoption of this technology and apply it to nearly every vehicle in our current portfolio and those in the very near future." Jay Rogers said, at Olli's initial launch in June this year.

Local Motors is a technology company that designs, builds and sells vehicles by combining co-creation with local micro-manufacturing to bring hardware innovations, like the world's first 3D-printed cars.
