What is a pilot?

ADS Pilot

A pilot is a short-term deployment of a product to prove viability and help introduce new tools. These new tools can then be demonstrated at a controlled scale that is then scaled up for real-world solutions. 

 

 

 

What is our project?

Our project aims to provide an ADS shuttle service for older adults and people with disabilities, helping residents get to critical locations such as doctor's appointments, grocery store, and more.

The shuttle service will be deployed in a concentrated area of Detroit with the potential to expand after the pilot concludes.

We will pilot our shuttle in a neighborhood throughout the city that is yet is be determined.

Learnings from the pilot will help us improve and expand the service throughout Detroit.

We received a federal grant to fund this innovation. Learn more about the Project Narrative.
