An autonomous vehicle trial along the foreshore of Glenelg, South Australia, is raising the awareness of driverless technology among locals and tourists.
Rides and interactive displays have allowed members of the public to experience autonomous vehicle technology first-hand.
The Glenelg trial is a partnership between Local Motors, Sage Automation, DPTI and Holdfast Bay. It is scheduled to run until May 2019.
Local Motors built the autonomous vehicle, Olli, while Sage Automation Matilda is operating transit hubs at each end of the journey.
During the trial phase, chaperones remain on board the vehicles to answer travellers’ questions and to ensure maximum safety.
