Federally funded autonomous electric shuttles show up in Ohio
Story by: Vishnu Rajamanickam at FreigtWaves
Linden LEAP, an autonomous electric shuttle funded by the federal government, is taking to the streets of Columbus, Ohio, providing residents in the South Linden neighborhood of the city access to the rest of Columbus.
Data collected during this project will be analyzed to make services incrementally better, helping further expand autonomous vehicle services across the country. For the next year, residents can ride the shuttle for free, with the initial travel route extending to about 3 miles.
This experiment is a brainchild of the Smart Cities Challenge program, which looks to encourage midsize cities to develop alternative transport modes using electric and autonomous vehicles.
