#442 – Smarte og responsive byer

Expørt: Johan Høgåsen-Hallesby

CTO

fra Urban Sharing

Med lørner Silvija Seres

Hvordan kan data fra hvor du sykler være med på å utvikle byene? Og hvordan kan vi tilrettelegge økosystemet av transport? I denne episoden av #LØRN snakker  Silvija med CTO i Urban Sharing, Johan Høgåsen-Hallesby, om hvordan de tilrettelegger økosystemet av transport for at menneskene i det velger de mest effektive transportmidlene, til rett tid og på rett tur for seg selv og resten av økosystemet.

Podcast questions (we shall discuss these topics, approximately): 

 

1) Who are you and how did you become interested in technology? 

I’ve owned, built and tinkered with computers all my life, but I’m only mildly interested in technology to be honest. 

 

2) What is the most important thing you do at your work? 

Align what the team builds with what the customers need and where the market is headed. 

 

3) What are the central concepts in your tech? How do you usually explain it to kids? 

To kids I tell them I work with the bikes and scooters they see on the streets. 

To grown-ups I tell them we build the platform these micro mobility vehicles run on and help our customers turn this into more sustainable businesses – both for the operator (financially) and for the city and it’s citizens (environmentally). 

To customers in the business I describe how we can increase revenue by predicting demand and improve opex by tracking operational tasks and durability of vehicles and parts. At the core of what we do is data and valuable and actionable insights drawn from running multiple fleets of real-time connected vehicles. 

 

4) Why is it exciting? What drives you here? 

Given that 1.3M people move into a city every day, and they’ve grinded to a congested halt as a result, it’s incredible meaningful to get to work on a sustainability challenge that is so close to the everyday life of so many people.    

 

Is here referring to the podcast, conference og general point in our business? 

 

5) What do you think are the relevant controversies? 

Not sure I understand the context of the question? 

 

6) Your own favourite projects? 

In my current venture? Or of all time? 

 

7) Your other favourite examples, internationally and nationally? 

In my current line of business? Or in general? 

 

8) Who are your customers? 

We offer our services (B2B, hardware-enabled SaaS) to operators of micro mobility. 

 

9) What do we do particularly well in Norway or in your country? 

I find that people and companies are generally very open to share both data, experiences and willing to collaborate.  

 

10) Recommended reading / viewing for further study for our listeners? 

At the moment I’m enjoying reading classics from when I was back in school in parallel with recently published books on the same subject: 

 

Like 

Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change (Victor Papanek– 1971) 

 

And 

Ruined by Design: How Designers Destroyed the World, and What We Can Do to Fix It (Mike Monteiro – 2019) 

 

 

Or 

The Death and Life of Great American Cities (Jane Jacobs – 1961) 

 

And 

Building and Dwelling: Ethics for the City (Richard Sennett – 2018) 

 

 

11) A favourite future quote, as a gift to our audience? 

Future quote? 

 

12) If people are to remember only one thing from our conversation, what would you like it to be? 

That technology should really not be the lens through which we try to understand the future.
