Local Motors Awesome System

  1. 1. Purpose Provide safe, sustainable and affordable solutions to serve the mobility needs of our urbanizing world
  2. 2. Problem: Cities face new challenges Current solutions: Taxes and charges Fuel, vehicle, emission taxes Congestion and parking charges Subsidies Alternative fuels and infrastructure Alternative fuels vehicles Public transport Bans Conventional vehicles in city centers By 2050, 70% of the world population will live in cities Current transport systems relying heavily on conventional cars, can not sustainably support that growth. Urban areas are experiencing pollution, congestion, noise and waste of public real estate. Cities face increased demand for mobility as population grows.
  3. 3. Current solutions: Problem: Operators face new challenges Rigid and costly systems Bus fixed lines Bus rapid transit Metro and tram lines Subsidies Infrastructure Consumer fares Economic limitations from an infrastructure investment as well as an operational profitability perspective. Challenges to increase or even maintain the level and quality of service to their customers. Fixed schedules and mass transport modes to provide mobility to the largest number of the population have limitations.
  4. 4. Current solutions: Problem: Consumers are stuck in traffic and pollution Non motorized Limited range Public transport Rigid Inefficient Car Expensive Dangerous Polluting Waste of time Customers have a diverse behaviors towards mobility. Because high ownership costs, traffic and scarce parking, consumers are willing to move away from car ownership when given a convenient alternative. Even though new mobility models are emerging, those alternatives are not yet convenient enough. A large volume of trips are made with personally owned vehicles with low occupancy rate leading to congestion and pollution. 75% of journeys are characterised by pain- points.
  5. 5. Mobility: The solution is shared, sustainable and autonomous Driverless Autonomous vehicles means less death on the roads as well as safer, affordable and efficient mobility Shared vehicles and rides Less vehicles means less congestion, emissions, pollution and translates into affordable mobility Sustainable Electric, lightweight, upgradable, recyclable vehicles means less pollution and emissions

  31. 31. Are automated vehicles safe? Yes, AVs have multiple sensors continuously scanning the environment to detect, identify and avoid obstacles. AVs don’t get distracted. They have reaction times faster than a human and have backup safety systems. How does an autonomous vehicle avoid an obstacle? How does it avoid a child running across the street? AVs use overlapping sensors like RADAR, LIDAR and cameras to detect objects in their path. These sensors see “everything” within a 200m radius. The sensors will usually see the child approaching before a human driver will. The sensors and software will identify the approaching human and adjust speed if required and prepare to stop. If there is no warning or if the child darts from a blind spot - the AV will have a nearly instantaneous emergency stop about 10x faster than a typical human response. Is it legal? Are automated vehicle operations allowed? Yes, private property like airports, universities, planned communities have the authority to allow AVs. Public authorities are also allowing limited or supervised operation on public roadways with more legislation being introduced and passed every year. Can’t AVs be hacked? AVs may be hacked, but the key is to keep the safety critical applications off-line and therefore isolated from hackers. Who is liable if there is an accident? How does insurance work? Manufacturers of AVs assume the liability of tech failures that result in accidents. The manufacturers will carry liability insurance to manage the risk. How is a system certified? Currently AV certification is a combination of automotive certification standards and automated machine certification. There are a few agencies providing 3rd party certification of AVs and LM works with them, insurance companies and the regulators to ensure the safety of the AWESOME system. FAQs about Autonomous Vehicles (AVs are self driving vehicles)
