Alex Nesic - Drover
Smarter Cars Podcast, Episode 51
In this episode, we're talking with Alex Nesic, co-founder and Chief Business Officer at Drover. Drover provides an advanced IoT module for micromobility vehicles that is capable of granular infrastructure distinction in real time without the need for ground truth information or precise GPS. We discuss how Drover can help shared fleet providers improve operational efficiency, regulatory compliance and safety by identifying where micromobility devices are riding - including distinguishing sidewalks from bike lanes/streets. Drover also can provide accurate geofencing, even in GPS-challenged areas, along with an array of vehicle control or user notification capabilities. We discuss the use of technology to monitor and correct user behavior and how scooters are more like drones than cars when it comes to the regulatory approach.

Also want to give a shoutout to another mobility podcast you may enjoy - The Rideshare Guy podcast with Harry Campbell. Harry is a terrific host and interviews a wide range of guests on mobility topics.
