The May shuttles currently in transit use operate
with a " safety " driver/monitor, known as the AVO, on
board. Olson promises the first " AVO-free " operation
in 2023. " We're getting close, and three things have to
come together. First is the level of software readiness,
and we're getting close to that level for some ODDs, "
he noted. " Over time, the ODD range in which we're
comfortable will grow and grow. Our philosophy is to
find an ODD in which we can 'stick the landing,' and
then we'll grow from there. But that first step's a doozie. "
The second enabler is the hardware. " You can't just
take any car, add some motors to it, hijack the CAN
bus and turn it into an autonomous vehicle. You'd end
up with one that always will require a safety driver
because it won't have the redundancy required for safe
operation, " he said. The Sienna prototypes used by May
are purpose-built with the redundant braking, steering
motors and ASIL-grade interface " needed to build a
successful, scalable, autonomous-vehicle company that
can take the safety driver out. "
The third factor is regulatory. May's advantage
here is its broad and deep relations with cities since
2017. " Often, they invite us in and make introductions
to the legislators and governors and help us figure out

the curb space, " Olson noted. " In the micro-mobility
space, cities have power. If you screw up and you aren't
respecting curb space, or obstructing traffic, or you
aren't providing equitable access to transportation and
only operating in affluent areas, and you don't have a
wheelchair-accessible option, cities can push back. And
that has derailed many transit startups. " ■
