Neuron Launches AR Parking Assistant to Improve E-scooter Parking

Neuron Mobility has unveiled its Augmented Reality (AR) Parking Assistant to help ensure e-scooters are parked responsibly.

The new feature is powered by Google’s ARCore Visual Positioning System and will complement GPS to accurately determine the location of Neuron’s vehicles.

When AR Parking Assistant is activated, riders wishing to end their ride will have to scan their surroundings through the Neuron app using their phone camera.

By distinguishing landmarks such as street signs or buildings, the scanned images will be compared against Google’s Street View database to identify the user’s precise location.

Riders who are not within a parking zone will then be directed to one nearby before they can end their trip.

This system works alongside Neuron’s end-of-trip photo feature, which requires users to upload an image to ensure the vehicle is parked upright and in the correct manner.

Together, these features will work to control where and how Neuron’s e-scooters are left between rides.
