Say hello – The "Olli" is a self-driving, electric bus from Local Motors, which is currently on trial ahead of commercial launch in US cities including Las Vegas and Miami in 2017.
All aboard – "Olli" holds 12 passengers, and is expected to initially operate in closed network locations such as campuses and airports.
Gift of the gab – Ollli is the first vehicle to feature IBM's Watson cognitive computer which powers a "friendly" vocal interface that passengers can talk to, although it is still working on understanding regional accents.
Click and print – Olli can be produced in two weeks through this 3-D printer. Using printed materials allows Local Motors to scale up production rapidly, and use a lower-carbon production process.
