Olli: 3D Printed Self-Driving Minibus

Olli: the 3D Printed Self-Driving Minibus

So what is Olli?

Katie Armstrong | June 17, 2016

Olli was designed to be like Uber; on demand transportation solution that can be summoned with an app. It can also be printed to spec in a matter of hours. Olli will be demonstrated in National Harbor, Maryland, over the next few months with additional trials expected in Las Vegas and Miami. Local Motors is also in talks to test the vehicles in dozens of cities around the world, including Berlin, Copenhagen, and Canberra.
Even though companies like Google and several others making self driving vehicles anticipate years of testing before we see autonomous cars on the road, Local Motors Co-founder and Chief Executive John Rogers says Olli is ready to roll as soon as regulations allow it.
