Taoyuan, recently named the 2019 Intelligent Community of the Year by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF), is expanding its electric vehicle infrastructure with the launch of the GoShare end-to-end mobility platform.

 

The solution comprises the Gogoro network, the Smartscooter and GoShare app and will roll out in the Taiwanese city in August and expand into multiple international cities next year.

 

AI and cloud integration

 

GoShare makes use of artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced cloud management to promote rider re-use, operational efficiencies across the network and rider battery swapping. Gogoro’s vision is to help cities build cleaner and more sustainable transportation systems.

 

"Cities around the world have proven consumer demand for mobility sharing but few have established a business model or deployed a solution that demonstrates ongoing viability because of the operational inefficiencies in refueling and redeployment of shared vehicles," said Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro.

 

Luke added that GoShare eliminates many of the operational challenges to delivering an optimised platform that is easy for riders to use, sustainable to operate and more viable for cities to meet their “aggressive” smart city goals and initiatives.

"Air pollution and carbon reductions are critical issues in urban management. Building a sustainable smart city is one of the most important tasks for the evolution of Taoyuan as an international city"

Taoyuan hopes GoShare can pave a way to a more extensive, more convenient urban transportation system for its citizens as well as boost its sustainability efforts.

 

The city has continued to demonstrate its commitment to a sustainable and smart future as tracked in six core areas including broadband, knowledgeable workforce, innovation, digital equality, advocacy, and sustainability.

 

"Air pollution and carbon reductions are critical issues in urban management. Building a sustainable smart city is one of the most important tasks for the evolution of Taoyuan as an international city," said Wen-Tsan Cheng, mayor of Taoyuan.

 

“With Gogoro, our city connects smart energy, smart industries, and smart transportation through electric vehicles, building a smart energy infrastructure that embracing big data analytics. We are confident this Gogoro partnership will continue producing remarkable reductions in air pollution caused by vehicle emissions and will accelerate the transformation of Taoyuan into a smart, livable city.

 

The GoShare solutions offers:

  • rider battery swapping: key to GoShare’s integration is its ability to enable riders to utilise the same battery swapping experience that Gogoro Smartscooters use. This means that GoShare customers are able to extend their energy and riding distance for as long as they need. Rider swap-ability also increases the efficiency and uptime of the entire platform and Smartscooters;
  • authentication and easy set-up: the rider uses the GoShare App to upload their driver’s licence and payment details and uses facial recognition to quickly complete the authentication process and start using GoShare;
  • one click reservations: the GoShare service is available 24/7 and the App enables users to view nearby GoShare Smartscooters and remaining battery capacities and select the one they want. The GoShare App then directs the rider to the reserved Smartscooter and then unlocks it.
