What happens after the six-month pilot project?

The expected data and learnings gained over the course of this pilot project will be compiled into a findings report. With respect to ELA, it is too premature to anticipate where she may be deployed to next and for what purposes or focus.

There are also early plans for a conference later this year in the region that will bring national and international players in the autonomous transportation sector to the Edmonton region. Beaumont’s project is expected to be a key feature and highlight of such a conference. These large companies, leaders in the industry and interested investors will learn about Beaumont, and we are ready to work with them.
