Autonomous shuttle to use 'cool tech' to serve people with disabilities

PHOENIX — IBM and Local Motors are developing a self-driving, electric shuttle bus that combines artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality, and smartphone apps to serve people with vision, hearing, physical, and cognitive disabilities, reported MIT Technology Review . The shuttle bus, called “Accessible Olli,” will use IBM’s AI-powered Watson technology to communicate with passengers (via voice and text displayed on an iPad) and will be manufactured starting in 2018, the report said. The companies have already identified some capabilities they may add to future models, including directing direct visually impaired passengers to empty seats or training Olli to recognize sign language, according to MIT Technology Review .
