Helbiz Partners with Fantasmo to Integrate Innovative E-Scooter Parking Technology

  • Camera Positioning Standard technology is designed to improve street safety

Helbiz Inc., (NASDAQ: HLBZ), a global leader in micro-mobility and the first in its industry to be publicly listed on Nasdaq, today announced a partnership with Fantasmo, a next-generation mapping company, to integrate its hyper-accurate parking technology into Helbiz’s e-scooter app. The integration will first roll out across the Company’s fleet in Miami, Florida with plans to expand to other markets as the partnership advances.

Fantasmo’s technology is designed to improve street safety.

Fantasmo’s Camera Positioning Standard (CPS) technology can detect the exact location of e-scooters and validate e-scooter parking within 8 inches or less with a phone camera alone, resulting in a safer experience for riders, pedestrians and cities. To unlock and park each e-scooter, riders will scan the QR code and surrounding area with their phone camera, which notifies Helbiz of the exact location of the device and whether or not it is parked within city-approved areas. Unlike GPS technology, CPS does not require any infrastructure like satellites, beacons or radios, but rather utilizes data connection and cameras to capture precise mapping and position of each device.

Vivian Myrtetus, Head of Partnerships & Policy at Helbiz, said:

“We are committed to educating our riders with proper e-scooter parking and safety measures and this partnership with Fantasmo takes that commitment a step further. With the integration of Fantasmo’s CPS technology, we can provide riders with the technology needed to use our e-scooters safely and responsibly.”

Jameson Detweiler, Co-Founder of Fantasmo, added:

“We're excited to be working with Helbiz to rollout our CPS technology to provide a safer e-scooter program by reducing sidewalk clutter and ensuring a more orderly sidewalk for all stakeholders. After spending significant time in Miami, it's clear the City of Miami and the Miami Parking Authority (MPA) are committed to providing the safest micro-mobility program. Fantasmo is proud to be working alongside Helbiz in the City of Miami.”
