An article in Business First reports an autonomous electric bus called Olli is coming to the UB North Campus in the spring, where it will be overseen by Adel Sadek, director of UB’s Stephen Still Institute for Sustainable Transportation and Logistics, and Chunming Qiao, chair of computer science and engineering, both in the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
The article notes the researchers are working on the iCAVE2 platform, a $1.7 million project to assess the safety, efficiency and user acceptance of self-driving cars. Testing will seek to determine the safety and operability of the vehicle especially in Western New York's inclement weather, Sadek said, adding that UB will also study what kind of laws and policies must be implemented to support self-driving shuttles on public roads.
