The sharing provider Voi and the semiconductor manufacturer NXP show connected and safe driving on two wheels in Hamburg

On 14 October, the sharing provider Voi Technology presented the first prototypes of its e-scooters equipped with real-time vehicle communication. The technology comes from semiconductor manufacturer NXP and has been further developed and optimised by both companies for use in scooters. The intelligent systems already used in vehicles are apparently also finding their way into micro-mobility. The scooters provided by Voi are equipped with NXP's V2X technology, which, among other things, should enable collision warning between two e-scooters at an early stage. The prototypes can also communicate with the traffic light systems of the test track for automated and connected driving (TAVF) in Hamburg via WLANp. V2X thus enables safer and more efficient traffic. The prototypes equipped by NXP are connected via a digital interface and can communicate with each other even over long distances and without seeing each other. By including data such as position, speed and direction of the scooter, collisions can be avoided or speed recommendations can be made when approaching a traffic light intersection. In the event of an upcoming collision, the scooter drivers are warned by red flashing of a display installed on the handlebars. This display also shows the timing of the current traffic light phase. By communicating with the signal systems of the TAVF test track, the scooters can display the time left of red and green phases and show them to the users by a small countdown.
