Neighbur was invited to the media in-person technical briefing to see and learn more about the innovative technologies and smart infrastructure being used for the shuttle pilot - "WAVE" the Whitby Autonomous Vehicle Electric Shuttle Pilot. Tenille Houston (Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, AutoGuardian By SmartCone) takes us inside the Autonomous Vehicle named "Olli" and tells us about the project. Soon the public will be able to experience the WAVE (free!) between the Whitby GO Station and the Whitby Portlands and share their experience. More info here: https://connectwhitby.ca/RideTheWAVe
