This deployment is different from the previous deployment, because the pilot will be operating multiple autonomous shuttle brands, one from Local Motors (Olli), and one from Navya. This is the first time in the world that a multi OEM autonomous shuttle operation has been completed in a 5G and connected vehicle environment. These shuttles will also be operating on the newly deployed CV2X infrastructure for V2I and V2P testing and integration. The companies will also continue to work on their platforms to ensure the safe and efficient operations of autonomous shuttles on public roadways.
PAUL is 100% electric with a variety of types of batteries onboard to power the vehicle and all the technology onboard.
A round trip is approximately 25 minutes, starting at City Hall and returning to City Hall. From City Hall to Westech Drive (across the street from City Hall) is approximately 18 minutes.
