The European electric scooter company Voi is turning to artificial intelligence to enable its vehicles to detect pedestrians and sidewalks. The startup hopes this move will ease chaotic micromobility concerns.

As e-scooter usage has surged throughout 2020, safety concerns have also increased around how the devices are used and deployed in busy cities. In response to those concerns, Voi plans to become the first company to deploy computer vision and on-device AI on scooters.
