Emission-Cutting E-micromobility Tech & Inclusive 'See Me' App: iMOVE CRC's Answer to a Greener, Inclusive Transport Future in Australia

 

MicroFleet, an Australian start-up, is set to reshape e-micromobility with pioneering urban charging station technology designed to slash local and global greenhouse gas emissions annually.

 

A brainchild of Australia Post e-bike supplier, Electric Vehicles Pty Ltd, microFleet received a $500,000 boost from iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre for their innovative OneDock - a universal charging hub for e-bikes, scooters, and light electric vehicles, marking the future of urban travel.

 

Data suggests that shared micromobility can substantially offset greenhouse gases. If microFleet's 2030 goal of 100,000 docking points in Australia and 1 million globally materialises, it could mean a drop of 6,417 tonnes of Australian emissions and a global reduction of 64,170 tonnes annually.

 

The investment has been made via iMOVE CRC’s million Impact Extension Program (IEP), aimed at helping Australian companies to accelerate the development and deployment of innovative transportation technologies, goods, and services.

 

iMOVE CRC is funded to support innovation in the transport and mobility sector through the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Program. More than 75 applications were received for the fund’s inaugural round; a clear illustration of the private sector’s vision and enthusiasm to improve transport sustainability, accessibility and safety in Australia.

 

With iMOVE CRC's backing, microFleet eyes a global presence, aiming for 70,000 OneDocks by 2024.

SAGE Automation See Me App: A Visionary Leap for Public Transport

 

The revolutionary See Me' app, an idea developed by Cassie Hames, a software programmer who is legally blind, and employed by SAGE Automation, has also been granted $500,000 from iMOVE CRC. The app promises to transform the public transport landscape for Australia's blind and vision impaired community.

 

iMOVE CRC managing director Ian Christensen said: “The 'See Me' app is an exciting development as it will significantly increase the accessibility of Australia’s public transport system, not only for blind people but for the whole community. We are proud to support this beacon of hope.”

 

SAGE Group managing director Adrian Fahey said: “Cassie's innovation aligns perfectly with SAGE's mission to create a smarter future and better world. We're envisioning a world where transportation provides greater inclusiveness, and See Me is a significant step towards that.”
