Autonomous shuttle Olli deployed in Turin, Italy

News

Olli, a self-driving, electric, 3D-printed shuttle, is an innovative product developed for urban mobility and designed with particular attention to accessibility and sustainability.

Info
In Turin, Olli's adventure begins with a trial period that will last four months, during which the shuttle will provide transport services within the ITC-ILO campus.

Bringing Olli to the Piedmont capital, the first deployment of its kind in Italy, is the result of collaboration at the international level between the City of Turin, ITC-ILO, Reale Mutua and Local Motors. Turin was one of the winners of Local Motors' Olli Fleet Challenge, a contest between European cities to determine the best short-term urban use case for testing the self-driving shuttle. Through May, employees and guests of the UN ITC-ILO campus will be able to take a ride on Olli, while the self-driving vehicle can gather valuable data and insight from operating in real urban conditions.

The vision of this initiative goes far beyond the implementation of self-driving technology, as it aims to offer a global solution to prepare for the shifting needs of mobility in the future. The deployment carries a light environmental impact as Olli will be charged with an ample supply of clean energy from partner IREN, which recently expanded its business model into the field of electric mobility. Self-driving technology, which shifts responsibility from a human driver to artificial intelligence, is an innovation that can be thoroughly studied and tested due to a significant contribution from main sponsor Reale Mutua.

One of the unique characteristics of Olli is the way its components are produced, which includes 80% 3D-printed parts. This is an important aspect for the city of Turin, as it is currently in the process of refining similar technology at the Competence Centre for Industry 4.0. The research and innovation involved in the project around topics such as artificial intelligence, user experience and mobility are supported by the University of Turin and, specifically, its centre for transdisciplinary innovation, ICxT.

Olli's deployment at the United Nations campus will also involve a support team consisting of young citizens and university students. Olli is designed to be easily accessible to the disabled, and this functionality will be further explored in collaboration with Turin's disability manager office.
