On June 19, 2019, Olli officially launched at Joint Base Myer – Henderson Hall! We’re excited to provide this autonomous experience to the residents and personnel on the base for the next three months.
Congratulations to the #OlliFleet Challenge winner for the Greater Washington D.C. area, Joint Base Myer – Henderson Hall! Thank you Commander Col. Kimberly A. Peeples, and your team, for accepting the award on April 4th at our announcement event, on behalf of the Marine Corps Installations Command and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters. Thank you for bringing #Olli to your community.
“The entries we received for this challenge in the Greater Washington, D.C. area really blew us away and encompassed a diverse selection of potential user situations,” Jay Rogers, CEO and co-founder of Local Motors, said. “In some aspects, technology is moving faster than the regulations that govern it. And this deployment for Olli will put autonomy within reach of those who are working to regulate it, which we welcome. It is exciting to see innovation in action, and Olli is an example of that.”
