AT&T and Peugeot Scooters are showcasing 2-wheeled freedom at Viva Tech with the launch of “Peugeot 2.0” – a connected electric scooter.  It will help transform the way people move around cities.

AT&T guest speaker, Jacques Bonneville, vice president, Electric Vehiclesat, Peugeot Motocycles (Peugeot Scooters) will present Peugeot 2.0 at the show with his vision of the future of urban transport on May 25 at the VivaTech Media Lounge.

Peugeot 2.0 is the result of a synergy between Peugeot Scooters and Mahindra GenZe. The connected scooter uses AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) solutions the AT&T Global SIM and the AT&T Control Center.

Peugeot 2.0 is connected to a cloud solution that collects information (vehicle, battery & engine data, and GPS localization). The data is accessible through a mobile app. It provides information about localization, battery level, quick diagnosis, charge history, etc. A fleet management portal is also available for professional-operating small fleets. This portal gives an overview of the entire fleet localization and dashboards, plus access to deep information concerning the vehicles and their batteries.

The result is a clean, carbon free alternative to help solve traffic congestion in some of the world’s busiest cities, like Paris. The idea is to show the way for pay-as-you-go transport service that lets users recharge at any standard electrical outlet or at home, thanks to a removable battery. It also has great rear storage, so riders can easily take their belongings with them and a device recharging in a compartment under the driver’s seat. 

IoT has the power to deliver new solutions for multiple industries and sectors – from shipping fruit across the globe to ensure it arrives perfectly ripe, to delivering healthcare drugs in temperature-controlled conditions. Developments and new solutions are developed all the time. We will give you a taste of how IoT is impacting our lives, and how it will continue to do so in the future at Viva Tech.

At our booth, we are showcasing Acumos, the open source AI platform, which we launched last year. It makes building, sharing and deploying AI applications easier, and it is hosted by non-profit organization the Linux Foundation.
