We leverage computer vision to solve the core safety challenges of micromobility

Sidewalk riding, collisions and disorderly parking present challenges to the growth and scale of micromobility. Luna’s smart camera technology enables operators and cities to understand how riders engage with vehicles and the ability to proactively reduce errant behavior in real time. Our vision data also provides actionable insights for a variety of smart city needs.

Sidewalk riding DETECTION

Luna's computer vision AI enables road/sidewalk/cycle lane recognition. Once a rider mounts such a restricted area, Luna emits a beep to encourage the rider to move to a more suitable area. Alternatively, the scooter can also be slowed or stopped depending on operator requirements, providing them with much greater control over where their units are being ridden.


Luna also provides a variety of AI-powered parking solutions to cater for different city environments and regulations.

Luna-enabled vehicles detect pedestrians and obstacles, emitting a beep to alert pedestrians once they enter critical distance. Again, the operator, in partnership with the host city, can select the mode of action in this situation - e.g. decelerating, or bringing the scooter to a safe stop to avoid collision. Luna provides much greater control to cities and operators in how they can react to such situations.

CROWDSourced vision data

Luna enables operators and cities to turn shared micromobility fleets into mobile sensor networks, capable of detecting, monitoring and reporting key parameters - from lane blockages to heat mapping of sidewalk riding, and from critical infrastructure monitoring to road condition surveys.




Is the scooter being ridden on a road, or on a footpath/sidewalk? Should the rider be warned?


How many pedestrians are in the scooters path? Should the rider and/or pedestrians be alerted?

AI/Computer Vision

We trust our eyes to find a location more than we trust the GPS blue dot on our screen. Luna computer vision/AI technology is far more accurate than the standard GNSS technology being used in the micromobility industry. Operators and municipalities simply cannot be sure that its rental fleet can be governed correctly by GNSS.

Operators globally are scrambling to improve the accuracy of the positioning of their fleets, and are experimenting with higher accuracy GNSS, new positioning algorithms (dead reckoning), as well as ‘sensor fusion’ methods to collect multiple data points from other sensors on the scooter, in order to more accurately ‘guesstimate’ its position.

These improvements still fall down when compared to computer vision/AI, because they are ultimately based on legacy GPS, which is an inherently inaccurate technology for a variety of reasons. Most shared scooter operators are starting to realise this, and more importantly most large cities are starting to reject GPS based solutions as they see them as entirely inadequate.

Luna technology can give stakeholders real time, accurate confirmation and control of how scooters are being ridden.

AI parking selfie

This is a new, very low cost, highly effective way to ensure riders park their free floating scooters/bikes correctly in virtual docks, at the end of each ride. The computer vision enabled parking verification algorithms, are creating irrefutable and real-time ‘virtual docks’ for operators, using predefined visual clues.

This is an app-based solution (no hardware requirement), but we will also be offering this parking verification/compliance capability as part of the Luna sidewalk riding detection hardware module.

The ‘AI parking selfie’ tech obviates the need for expensive fixed corrals, removes the perceived need for lock-to ordinances by cities, and also avoids docking station RFP stipulations from municipalities that lower utilization rates.

There is no need to LiDAR map thousands of parking locations in each city, and no need to rely on highly inaccurate geofences in order to manage your parking locations. You just need some painted markings on the ground – whether they be an operators bay markings or an existing city car park space with scooter signage.

What people say?

This is such an important research pilot project for TIER in Ireland and we are excited to have launched this trial across the five campuses of Dublin City University. It is an exciting opportunity for detailed research on smart city applications of e-scooters as well as modal shift, as we partner with Luna and Insight to help the University to reduce its carbon footprint and offer a more sustainable, safer first and last mile public transport solution. We hope to apply all project learnings to future TIER operations in Ireland.
Voi is developing scooters that can ‘see’ what’s around them and therefore irrefutably ‘know’ what they need to do in order to be safe, whereas other scooters are trying to ‘feel’ what’s around them and use that to ‘guess’ what they should do next.
