The online event was a successful stakeholder launch of a project being conducted by TRL and fka on behalf of the European Commission on future regulations for micromobility in the EU

Lead by Dr Ianto Guy, Practice Lead at TRL, and attended by Annick Roetynck, Manager of LEVA-EU, the online webinar discussed harmonised rules to support the rise of micromobility and increased road safety for personal mobility devices. Lasting approximately 1.5 hours, the webinar included a fruitful QnA session.

TRL is a global centre for innovation in surface transport and mobility, with a focus on creating clean and efficient transport that is safe, reliable and accessible for everyone. The Germany-based fka is a research partner for the automotive industry, developing innovative solutions and strategic consulting.

The presentation includes a call for assistance, where TRL is very keen to hear from stakeholders who can help with following:

▪ Market data
▪ Evidence on the ways in which a lack of harmonised regulations is affecting the micromobility industry
▪ Collision data – particularly, detailed accounts of collision mechanisms
▪ Suggestions and feedback on cutoff limits for micromobility (30km/h, 250kg ??) – do we need to include factors other than mass and speed?
▪ Suggestions and feedback on technical requirements
▪ Suggestions and feedback on a pragmatic but effective system for self-certification which enables easy enforcement?
▪ Potential unintended consequences

Contact details can be found within the presentation pdf file.
