Data captured by Stage Intelligence from cities operating schemes around the world shows artificial intelligence can increase operational efficiencies.
Artificial intelligence (AI) can help to increase operational efficiencies and enhance the user experience of micro-mobility schemes, according to a new report.
The findings are revealed in the BICO Performance Report 2019, published by Stage Intelligence, the AI platform provider for mobility and logistics. It aims to show the direct impact of AI on programmes across the globe.
The report uses data captured from Stage’s BICO AI Optimisation platform, which enables operators to visualise, automate and optimise their micro-mobility schemes. The platform is live across three continents, seven countries and 12 cities handling 40,000 bikes a day of which 15,000 are electric.
Stages contends that AI can solve scheme operators’ challenges around revenue growth while also reducing costs. The report shows it helped to deliver an average of 98 per cent usability while reducing distribution hours by 20 per cent, leading to a 20-tonne reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
Schemes were able to deliver a 94 per cent availability and increase rides per bike per day by two enabling them to maximise the potential of their scheme. Schemes that have deployed BICO on average have seen:
“Micro-Mobility schemes can be complex to manage, costly to operate and difficult to grow,” said Tom Nutley, CEO at Stage Intelligence. “That puts a limits on the impact micro-mobility can have for citizens and cities. When an operator deploys an AI-based solution, they transform their operations and increase the health and sustainability of their schemes.
“Operators need an intelligent foundation for delivering the next-generation of micro-mobility and offering new users experiences"
“Our data shows the impact that AI is having in the real world. It is solving the most pressing challenges operators face while making it easier for users to make micro-mobility part of their daily routine.
“Operators need an intelligent foundation for delivering the next-generation of micro-mobility and offering new users experiences. The ones that will be successful will be armed with new intelligence, data visualisation, real-time decision-making, optimized resources and have the freedom to grow and innovate,” added Nutley.
BICO enables micro-mobility scheme operators to remove complexity from their operations and reduce costs and in the past 12 months the platform has improved key performance indicator performance for operators by eight per cent. With historic visibility into scheme performance, BICO enables operators to increase ridership, reduce costs and automate operations.
