Vulog partners with Segway to accelerate creation of shared micro-mobility services
Shared-mobility technology provider, Vulog, and kick-scooter manufacturer, Segway, announced a new partnership to integrate Vulog’s AiMA platform and the new sharing-ready scooters from Segway+\ to enable existing mobility operators and new entrants to deploy profitable, large-scale shared kick-scooter services more easily and more quickly.
This shared mobility service combining cars and kick-scooters is expected to be launched in Europe in Q2 2019.
“This new collaboration with Segway allows us to advance the development of micro-mobility services for our operator customers,” said Gregory Ducongé, CEO of Vulog. “We have now made it faster and simpler to establish a scooter-sharing service, expanding the number of ways users can travel door-to-door and helping to reduce traffic congestion and pollution in our cities.”
This is the first collaboration between Vulog and a mobility manufacturer. The company expects soon to announce similar arrangements with car manufacturers so that it can offer sharing-ready cars to operators.
The AiMA platform’s enhanced set of features is fueled by Vulog's data insight and artificial intelligence proficiency. Other new features recently added include improved predictive demand management, specific electric fleet management enhancements, and the integration of autonomous shared mobility capabilities.
