Self-driving Vehicles to Shuttle Workers, Residents
Optimus Ride, a leading self-driving vehicle technology company, announced plans on March 20 to deploy its self-driving systems at two sites: the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a 300-acre modern industrial park, and Paradise Valley Estates, a private 80-acre, nonprofit Life Plan Community in Fairfield, California. With the new announcements, Optimus Ride will have ongoing operations in four states.
Residents and workers at both sites will have access to efficient and convenient self-driving shuttles confined by geofenced areas. Optimus Ride has adopted a unique approach to autonomous vehicle technology deploying shuttles that operate in private locations as opposed to public roads. General Motors also plans for a self-driving ride-sharing service to launch sometime this year.
