Last week, CES 2024 showcased some of the latest e-bikes launched in the industry and provided a platform for manufacturers to unveil their newest models.
In particular, the event highlighted the latest smart technologies and AI capabilities that are being integrated into new micromobility vehicles.
For example, Urtopia unveiled its Fusion and Carbon 1 Pro e-bike models, which are equipped with voice-controlled ChatGPT to provide information such as personalised training plans or sightseeing tours.
As well as producing the first e-bikes powered by OpenAI, Urtopia states that its Fusion model is the world’s first dual battery, dual motor e-bike.
Meanwhile, Vanpowers also debuted its latest e-bike models at CES: the GrandTeton mountain e-bike and the UrbanCross lightweight gravel e-bike.
With these unveils, the manufacturer stressed the importance of its new smart security system, which aims to set a benchmark in theft prevention and detection.
This smart system integrates features such as a hub motor lock, emergency SOS, a vibration detector, real-time GPS tracking and geofencing.
In addition, Segway-Ninebot unveiled the Segway Xafari and Segway Xyber during the event.
These models are equipped with ‘Active Scene Perception,’ which observes the road conditions and the rider to intelligently make decisions. This could include actions such as adjusting the power output and turning the headlights on or off.
Furthermore, these new vehicles also have smart cockpits that integrate applications, electronic speakers, sensor headlights, music playback and intelligent navigation systems on a colour-display dashboard.
It is also worth noting that the e-bikes showcased at CES continue to raise the bar in terms of range, transmission and battery capacity. However, to truly stand out, manufacturers appear equally focused on going above and beyond to integrate smart, AI-driven technologies into their vehicles.
The focus on micromobility at CES 2024 was therefore centred around technology-driven features and rider assistance capabilities to further enhance the user experience beyond the physical handling of the vehicles.
