New technology to prevent drunk scooter driving?
Lime scooters are working towards technology to prevent drunk riders and protect everyone around them. They say the scooters will automatically slow down if they detect the driver isn’t staying in a straight line. So if the scooter senses wobbling, it may assume you are intoxicated. Doctors hope that this new technology will help the number of trauma cases they see.
“We can just slow down the vehicle where we detect irregular driving,” he said.
“Our scooters have all kinds of sensors that can sense whether it’s driving in a straight line or whether it’s wobbling. We do the warning. We can slow it down. We’re still working on it. It’s not launched, but that’s an example of many things that we’re improving right now on the issue of data,” Boa explained.
