[Watch] What the Next Big Breakthroughs in Tech and Design Mean for Micromobility

Teeth-rattling rides. Geofencing frustrations. Sidewalk clutter. Emerging micromobility solutions have huge potential to help ease congestion and prevent climate catastrophe, but they won’t get far unless we can overcome some of the frustration points for riders.

New designs and technologies, including AI, sensors, sidewalk detection, and gamification, could fundamentally reshape user behavior, improve safety, streamline maintenance and pave the way for automated vehicles.

Watch the lively discussion about the big breakthroughs that are coming in tech and design, and how they could transform micromobility as we know it, featuring:

Sidewalk Detection on the Edge and Shared Micromobility: A Solution Analysis

As the only form of public transit that is readily capable of supporting social distancing, shared bikes and scooters will be an essential component of an effective urban economic recovery strategy in the coming months. Prior to COVID-19, the city of San Francisco announced that future shared scooter platforms will be required to have deterrents to riding on sidewalks. Naturally, being both SF residents who will be affected by this decision, and curious engineers with micromobility industry experience, we decided to leverage our expertise in machine learning to explore the specifics involved in implementing a system which can determine if a scooter is riding on a street or a sidewalk.
