vice on public roads. They always
say that the state of Texas is AI
friendly, which is another reason
that Drive.ai selected Frisco, the
state allows for pilot programs
like this, where a lot of states are
not AV friendly. This program
has just been a joint partnership
with Drive.ai and the TMA and
it's been an incredible partnership
for us," said Holcomb.

Introducing a new
technology

Introducing autonomous vehicles can sometimes seem like a
daunting task, but with the partnership both DCTA and Drive.ai
informed the public as to what it
would mean for their transportation options.
"Prior to the launch, we had
many community forums and
open house events to talk about

these self-driving programs that
were going to be coming on-board
to answer any concerns. The response was very positive. Many
community members came out to
those events and they were excited about the technology that was
being deployed within their city.
They were excited about what that
could mean in the future. They
were disappointed to hear that
this program was focused for
those tenants at Hall Office Park.
They wanted to know when it was
going to come to their neighborhood. I think that was really exciting to see, because when you
deploy a new technology, you do
sometimes have a perception of
what the public perception might
be, so it was pleasantly surprising
to see how the public responded,"
said Holcomb.
The technology that Drive.ai

launched was focused on benefiting the community.
"Drive.ai is a self-driving
vehicle company transforming
the relationship between people
and transportation with a people-centric safety approach to
self-driving. Using deep learning,
a sophisticated branch of artificial
intelligence, Drive.ai integrates
the raw data from sensor hardware - such as radar, lidar and
full-surround cameras - with
proprietary AI software to develop self-driving systems from the
ground-up," said Halder.
In the initial conception of
the program, the community
asked about the safety of the
vehicles and relying on the autonomy to stop the vehicle in the
event of an obstacle.
"The day we had demo rides
there was an incident where
