Micromobility operator, Dott, is collaborating with See.Sense to improve e-scooter safety in Madrid through the use of sensors.
During a twelve-week proof of concept trial, a selection of Dott’s e-scooters will be equipped with See.Sense sensors to observe rider behaviours.
This monitoring technology can identify slight changes in rider behaviour to shed light on the user experience. These insights will then be used to identify areas with a high occurrence of abrupt braking or swerving, while also detecting road surface conditions.
The identified hotspots will be shared with relevant authorities to propose enhancements in cycling infrastructure design or road quality. In turn, it is hoped that this initiative will contribute to safer streets in support of Madrid’s Vision Zero objectives.
“High-quality infrastructure is essential in ensuring the safety and confidence of micromobility users on the road. The results of this partnership with See.Sense aim to reveal that our vehicles can be used to gather insights which help cities improve road conditions, whilst providing efficient and sustainable transport for users.”
This trial builds on a successful implementation in central London that has informed the risk profile of streets as part of TfL’s Vision Zero initiative.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Dott, this time in the vibrant city of Madrid, to assist in making sustainable travel safe, comfortable, and appealing to all.”
