CLEVR is offering a three-wheeled scooter that can be fitted with a seat to make it viable for disabled persons. But the company's real secret weapon is a super-precise GPS tracking module that's accurate to within three feet. So CLEVR can tell where the scooter is being ridden and it can modify the scooter's top speed."Rather than try to control user behavior management, we can try to control the vehicles deployed through intelligence," said CEO Alex Nesic. "Sidewalk driving can now be geofenced and controlled at a reasonable speed." And data showing where users prefer the sidewalk can tip city officials off to streets that feel unsafe.
For weeks, I'd been seeing trashed electric scooters on the streets of San Francisco. So I asked a group of friends if any of them had seen people vandalizing the dockless vehicles since they were scattered across the city a couple of months ago.
For me, the scooter revolution occurred late last year. This was long before Bird invaded Santa Monica, Spin flooded the Bay Area, or Lime was unleashed upon San Diego. It was when my three-year-old first blazed by me on her kick scooter, leaving me standing on the sidewalk in disbelief.
