AutonomouStuff setting up research facility in Ottawa

Last updated:

AutonomouStuff, which develops a test platform for companies looking to develop apps for self-driving vehicles, is to setup a research facility at Ottawa L5 test track.

The company will operate out of the L5 test track, a 16-kilometre gated facility with all the infrastructure tech firms need to experiment with autonomous driving.

The site, which opened last year, is spearheaded by Invest Ottawa with support from BlackBerry, Ericsson, Nokia and others.

The first project the company will tackle in Ottawa is its Open Autonomy Pilot, which it will build on a Lexus RX450h testing vehicle.

“We decided to expand into Ottawa because of its unique strengths in connected autonomous vehicle technology, particularly the Ottawa L5 test track,”

“The combination of connected testing infrastructure and collaboration with highly experienced partners in Ottawa will accelerate the deployment of autonomous technology across the globe.”

Chief Autonomous Officer Bobby Hambrick

AutonomouStuff is developing an autonomy-ready platform – from the vehicle itself to the software on board – that companies can use as a testbed for their app development.

Some clients might use AutonomouStuff’s tech to make an app for hands-free food delivery, while others might build software to remotely guide massive trucks through a mining site.
