Neuron Mobility to Fit e-Scooters with New ‘Brain’ to Drive Safety

Neuron introduces the world’s most sophisticated e-scooter with global technology trial! Our distinctive orange e-scooters will be fitted with a new ‘e-scooter brain’ to drive e-scooter safety.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of a major global technology trial which will take place over six months and is the first of its kind. Starting today we’ll have the first of 1,500 e-scooters in cities across Australia, Canada and the UK.

The trial’s findings will determine how selected features will be rolled out across Neuron’s fleet.

Neuron’s safety-first e-scooters will be fitted with a revolutionary new ‘e-scooter brain’ which combines three very important new technologies:

  • High Accuracy Location Technology (HALT) – This allows us to detect an e-scooter’s location to within 10 centimetres, making it at least 50 times more accurate than the average GPS-based location system which plots to around 5-10 metres.
  • Rapid Geofence Detection – This triggers an e-scooter’s response to a geofence in 0.3 seconds (as opposed to the usual 6-12 seconds). Making our e-scooters much more controllable in cities and potentially safer.
  • Dangerous Riding Detection – We are introducing a range of smart sensors to counteract unsafe riding habits in real-time. We’ll also be able to profile riders, giving them an individual safety rating, so we can educate, correct and incentivise good riding behaviour.

The trial’s findings from Ottawa in Canada, Brisbane and Darwin in Australia, and Slough in the UK will determine how selected features will be rolled out across Neuron’s fleet internationally over the next 12 months.

We look forward to further enhancing rider safety and putting Councils back in control of their e-scooter programmes!
