Autonomous vehicle (AV) startup Beep unveiled on Tuesday its first 3D-printed Olli 2.0 shuttle, developed by Local Motors and autonomous tech company Robotic Research. The shuttle was delivered to the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) to complement its Test & Learn program.
JTA will utilize the Olli 2.0 vehicle in advancing its Ultimate Urban Circulator (U2C) initiative, which intends to modernize the city’s existing Skyway transit system. This vehicle is the fifth AV that JTA has tested since the launch of U2C in 2017.
“The delivery of the Olli 2.0 at our Test & Learn track marks the next step in shaping the future of public transportation– not just in Jacksonville, but nationally,” said JTA CEO Nathaniel Ford.
