There has been a visible spike in the adoption of micro-mobility-based travel platforms. This is mostly because it allows one to travel safely while maintaining social distancing during these Covid times. Amsterdam-based micro-mobility company Dott recently won one of the three spots to operate e-scooters in Paris. Now, it is running trials for a new-age verification for its e-scooter riders.
Riders in Lyon can now try age-verification
Dott says its age verification feature is the first of its kind, which is currently being trialled in the city of Lyon. The feature is said to quickly check and verify if the rider is above 18. It is done via the Dott app, which performs identity verification by corroborating the true identity of a rider with ID capture and performing a quick selfie with “liveness check”.
