Local Motors and computer vision platform leader, alwaysAI, have entered a partnership to bring advanced computer vision applications to Olli 2.0, Local Motors’ autonomous electric vehicle. This partnership will dramatically improve passenger onboarding and in-cabin experiences, as well as overall safety.

alwaysAI®’s platform will enable automated accessibility features and enhanced passenger experience in Local Motor’s AV products. These features will allow transit services to reach more passengers, drive up vehicle utilization, and improve safety.

“Computer vision is a critical part of the new transportation industry. CV provides intelligent sight to autonomous vehicles, like the shuttles from Local Motors, and presents a significant opportunity to improve services and features as AVs spread across our communities,” said Marty Beard, Co-founder & CEO of alwaysAI.

alwaysAI will work with Local Motors initially to offer their customers smarter and safer onboarding experiences, particularly for customers with unique assistance needs (e.g., wheelchairs, canes, etc.). Alongside the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, the companies’ first joint deployment of deep learning computer vision will provide a smarter onboarding experience for veterans in Palo Alto, CA. In addition, the companies will work to improve overall in-cabin experience and safety.

“This partnership is critical to unlocking new value for our customers,” says Vikrant Aggarwal, President of Local Motors. “Our work with alwaysAI is another example of Local Motors’ strategy to be open and integrate the best technology into Olli”.
