The platform is launching soon in a US city with a national scooter operator
Light electric vehicle (LEV) charging system company, Swiftmile, is launching what claims to be the world’s first solar-powered scooter charging platform. The platform will launch soon in a major US city with a national scooter operator.
The new platform acts like the gas station for electric scooters, allowing any operator to use universal charging stations addressing city congestion. It can scale to support thousands of vehicles from any dockless scooter operator.
Oasis aims to provide cities with an environmentally friendly, universal and modular solution for organising scooter programmes. Plus, the company’s new in-field charging platform can support thousands of scooters in need of a charge while fostering mass adoption.
“Shared electric scooters and bikes add great new transportation options for cities," said former Palo Alto Mayor, Pat Burt. "But they have created a big problem – they are being left everywhere as hazards and litter. A parking and charging system for these dockless vehicles is a solution cities are looking for.”
"Swiftmile’s vision is to be what the first gas stations were to the auto industry, but for the fast growing micro-mobility revolution"
Swiftmile’s proprietary charge-management back-end can integrate with any third-party scooter app, allowing riders and operators to seamlessly find charging and parking locations for scooters. It says cities will find that installation is easy and inexpensive. The platform is offered with the following:
"Swiftmile’s vision is to be what the first gas stations were to the auto industry, but for the fast growing micro-mobility revolution," said Colin Roche, CEO Swiftmile. "We like to think of ourselves as the peacemakers between the public, cities and scooter operators.
“We developed the first in-field e-scooter charging system that allows scooters to be parked and charged in convenient locations, then show back up on any scooter operator’s app ready to ’roll’ again."
