Beep Expands Autonomous Shuttle Fleet
Dec. 3, 2020—Beep, an autonomous mobility service, and Local Motors by LM Industries, the world’s first and only digital vehicle manufacturer, have announced the arrival of Olli, a fully-electric and primarily 3D printed shuttle.
The shuttle will be in service in Lake Nona, a 17-square-mile planned, neo-urban community created by Tavistock Development Company, where Beep is headquartered and operates the country's largest autonomous shuttle mobility network.
With the introduction of Olli, both Beep and Local Motors will be able to test the first-generation shuttle in real-world mixed traffic scenarios. The companies will later introduce the Lake Nona community to Olli 2.0 in late Q1 of 2021.
Local Motors uses one of the world's largest 3D printers to produce Olli, which is an 80 percent 3D-printed, recyclable vehicle powered by two electric hub motors in the rear wheels.
Currently Olli's network spans four routes and connects riders to Lake Nona's key retail, residential, recreational and medical destinations.
