    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

    Computer Vision Is Slow to Catch on, But the Technology Is Improving

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to disrupt and transform manufacturing and a number of other industries. Many businesses are already experiencing improved operational efficiencies, productivity growth, cost reductions and new revenue-generation opportunities. These gains are likely to accelerate and scale across the economy as IoT technological maturity and adoption increases. IoT and other emerging technologies can take 10 or more years to reach market saturation from incubation. The U.S. federal government accelerates this journey through targeted investments in research and development (R&D) and technology transfer as part of its “Lab to Market” process. In FY 2020, the U.S.
