Submitted on Monday, 25/01/2021

Luna, an Irish start-up that has developed technology to encourage better behaviour by riders and operators of shared micromobility schemes, has teamed up with Zipp Mobility to roll-out smarter electric scooters.

The partnership is one of a number of deals agreed by e-scooter operators for Luna’s ground-breaking technology, which uses artificial intelligence and camera technology to ensure better safety.

The two Irish companies have also agreed to share information it gleans with researchers based in the Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics, as well as with Dublin City Council’s Smart Dublin team.

Zipp, whose backers include former Irish rugby captain Brian O’Driscoll, is to fit its scooters with technology from the DCU Alpha-based company that can detect where exactly the e-scooters are, if they are being ridden properly, and if they have been parked properly after use.
