“We realized that the need for alternative means of transportation and traffic and pollution reduction were not and are not priorities related only to large cities. So, we turned to many small and medium-sized cities.”

What we discuss with Matteo Ribaldi

Superpedestrian is a shared micromobility reality founded in 2013 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The company has adopted an innovative technology for its scooters: Vehicle Intelligence, a safety system comprising 73 sensors and five microprocessors that allows over 1,000 quality checks per second, followed by related repairs.

Matteo Ribaldi and I address several issues in this episode. First, we discuss Artificial Intelligence as the pivot on which the world of micromobility (which is not only strictly related to large urban centers) is based. Then we discuss accessibility and education issues concerning younger people.

As always, our guest gives three actionable insights to our listeners on preparing for future technological opportunities.
