Self-Driving Shuttle At Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

Local Motors has just launched a pilot self-driving shuttle program at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, the base which was the setting for the original Top Gun Movie (the actual TOPGUN military program has since moved to Nevada, but base remains a Marine Corps Air Station). The vehicle model, which has previously deployed in other environments, is called Olli.

Before Cruise acquired Voyage, we focused on self-driving robotaxis for senior citizen retirement communities. The idea was that these were slower, simpler environments that would lend themselves to faster deployment of autonomous technology. Military bases are very similar in that regard.

In a few minutes, I bet you can think of other environments that share similar characteristics: theme parks, airports, university campuses, warehouses, protected self-driving vehicle lanes.
