Luna and Blue Duck partnered with each other originally to test the potential for “centimetre-level accurate parking”, using a hyper accurate GPS correction technology called Real Time kinematics (RTK).
This tech was successfully demonstrated to achieve parking accuracy of approx 3cm in a live trial on the ground of Dublin City University.
“We were excited to learn about Luna’s centimeter-level GPS technology. That level of precision would allow us to locate our scooters more efficiently and would lead to stricter compliance with geofencing requirements.” – Blue Duck CEO Michael Keane
Zipp has partnered with Luna in order to access our ground-breaking technology, which uses artificial intelligence and camera technology to ensure better safety.
Both companies have also agreed to share computer vision data with researchers based in the Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics, as well as with Dublin City Council’s Smart Dublin team.
“Zipp is delighted to be partnering with Luna, another rapidly emerging Irish micromobility success story, to make our fleet the most technologically advanced one on the streets of the UK, and in the near future Ireland,” – Zipp mobility CEO and Founder Charlie Gleeson
