Superpedestrian debuts its next-gen operating system Briggs – upgrading every LINK e-scooter. LINK is the only e-scooter powered by VIS (Vehicle Intelligent Safety system), a sophisticated onboard safety system that combines artificial intelligence, 73 sensors and five microprocessors. VIS runs 1,000 vehicle health checks every second in a ride, and monitors, governs and fine-tunes vehicle performance in real-time. Because VIS can be continuously upgraded with new operating systems, features and updates, LINK scooters get more responsive with every update.
LINK is engineered to get smarter over time – their ability to continuously upgrade the operating system makes LINK unique. This makes for constantly-improving vehicles for riders, better protection for pedestrians and more robust safety performance for cities. Cities should demand nothing less for their citizens.
Key features of Briggs include 22% faster geofence reaction. LINK scooters can react in just 0.7s, making the industry’s fastest-responding geofence system; 3X capacity for onboard geofences. The Briggs operating system can now accommodate 24,000 discrete onboard zones in one city; 7X more precise geofence accuracy. Enhanced mapping resolution makes parking control more precise and geofence enforcement faster; 10% more range. Powertrain efficiency boosts scooter range to 61 miles: three times the range of common alternatives and two days extra battery life increased to 22 days.
Superpedestrian also unveiled new ergonomic design features for the latest scooters in production with updated front suspension, that decreases rider fatigue on longer trips and increases ride stability. A brighter color scheme featuring more extensive use of its safety yellow. The scooters also get a redesigned deck mat, a smoother ride and increased grip underfoot. Revised handlebar grips are more comfortable for riders and more durable.
