    Computer vision e-scooter technology to be trialled in UK city

    Shared e-scooter operator Voi will launch what claims to be the world’s first large-scale pilot of computer vision on e-scooters in the UK city of Northampton, later this month.   The two-stage pilot involves installing artificial intelligence (AI) technology that can detect when an e-scooter leaves the road and rides on a pavement, or when the vehicle is parked incorrectly.   Voi has an exclusive licence to operate in Northampton as part of the British government’s national trial of e-scooters, which started last year and runs until spring 2022.   Lane segmentation   Voi is working on the project with Irish micromobility start-up Luna

    Voi launches world-first e-scooter trial of computer vision technology

    E-scooter operator Voi has launched the world’s first large scale pilot of computer vision on e-scooters. AI technology installed on the e-scooter can detect when it leaves the road and rides on a pavement, or when the vehicle is parked incorrectly. Voi is working with Irish micromobility start-up Luna, whose technology offers real-time lane segmentation and pedestrian detection for scooters, similar to that available in high-end cars. ‘) } // –> ‘) } // –> Voi e-scooters fitted with the new technology
