Micromobility

Micromobility explores the disruption to urban transport that comes from new electric, lightweight utility vehicles. Using the history of computing as a framework, we unpack how e-bikes, scooters and more will change how people get around cities.

6: Going Premium: The iPhone of bikesharing with Corinne Vogel of Smide


Micromobility explores the disruption to urban transport that comes from new electric, lightweight utility vehicles. Using the history of computing as a framework, we unpack how e-bikes, scooters and more will change how people get around cities.

5: Scooters and transport ecologies


In today’s show we cover the rise of scooter sharing and how different localised constraints result in different micromobility solutions blooming. Specifically: - The scooter sharing model that Bird pioneered, why it emerged in Santa Monica and why it might not apply to other contexts. - The history from the Segway to the hoverboard, Boosted Board and on to the current scooter form factor. - The local variables that need to be considered for micromobility fleet operators...

4: Marchetti's constant and the power-network-intelligence matrix of micromobility


In this episode, we look at Marchetti's constant and why commute times tend to aggregate at under 1 hour per day. In this episode we also cover: - how the 1 hour daily commute has been a constant across time, and how that affects how our cities form. - What the Marchetti's constant is, and how it has driven the explosion in shared scooters and bikes. - the Segway, why it failed and what it can teach us about the emergent micromobility phenomena...

2: What is micromobility, how do we define it, and why is it disruptive?


In this episode, we define the term micromobility and what is/isn’t in the categorisation. We run through: 1) Why micromobility can be defined as utility focussed urban transport in sub 500kg vehicles, and predominantly electrically powered. 2) The background of how Horace came to see micromobility’s potential to disrupt the automobile industry. 3) Why e-bikes are some of the best city-based transportation mode option- hint: it’s the fastest way across town and can be parked anywhere...
