vehicle technology integrator local motors introduced a self driving vehicle with IBM’s ‘watson’ advanced cognitive computing platform, dubbed ‘olli’. the electric car, which can carry up to 12 people, is equipped with 30 advanced sensors to improve the passenger experience and allow natural interaction with other vehicles.

olli’ is the first vehicle to utilize IBM’s cloud-based computing to analyze and learn from high volumes of transportation data. using local motor’s open vehicle development process, more sensors will be added and adjusted continuously as passenger needs and local preferences are identified.

passengers will be able to interact conversationally with ‘olli’ while traveling between destinations, discussing topics about how the vehicle works, where they are going and why the car is making specific driving decisions. these interactions are designed to create more pleasant, comfortable, intuitive and interactive experiences for riders as they journey in autonomous vehicles.
