The Technology Guiding Micro-Mobility into the Future with Tony Ho

 

Whether you live in Chicago, Austin, Atlanta, or San Diego, you have likely seen scooters make their way into the nation’s major urban hubs. These scooters are the latest development in micro-mobility, helping transport people short distances with ease and efficiency.

Today we explore the world of micro-mobilty on this episode of The Last Mile, Powered by Segway. With the recent boom of scooters to America’s major cities, investors and consumers may be wondering what’s next for this new industry. Scooters exploded onto the scene, so where do they go from here? On this episode we talk about projections for the future of micro-mobility and innovations in the pipeline with Tony Ho, President of Global Business Development at Segway-Ninebot.

One thing is clear, young consumers have accepted scooters with gusto. And not just in the USA, scooters have taken off in European countries and developing countries as well. Still, the scooters pose challenges for some cities as they struggle with different bylaws, changing seasons, and inconsistent bicycle-friendly infrastructure. Ho sees these challenges as opportunities for engineers to innovate and improve.

“Once a scooter is turning from a toy into a transportation device, a lot of the engineering and technology side of the feature needs to be built into the scooters,” Ho said.

This means prototyping scooter design that absorbs more shock, handles uneven terrain, and utilizes AI to the best of its ability.

“AI, it’s critical,” he said.

By levering technology, scooters can become safer and more responsive. Ho even predicts there will soon be a day where we will summon scooters, much like hailing a cab.
