"We are pleased to partner with the University at Buffalo and the State of New 
York to implement and customize Olli for their mobility testing and 
sustainability strategies," said Local Motors Executive Vice President Matthew 
Rivett. "This partnership showcases how campuses, states, and others can invest 
in and explore the future of transportation. Local Motors looks forward to 
assisting UB and future partners on practical solutions and research

leader in driverless technology while expanding our knowledge of 
human-automation interaction, critical to understanding artificial intelligence 
and machine learning," said University at Buffalo Vice President for Research 
and Economic Development Venu Govindaraju. "We've designed UB's ecosystem — 
from world-class researchers and facilities to dynamic partnerships with 
government and industry — to support these opportunities that foster discovery, 
innovation, and collaboration."

3D-printed, self-driving, smart shuttle, built to change the future of
