Use Case Spotlight: The Retrieval of Micromobility in the Netherlands with Helium

Allsetra, an Amserfoot, Netherlands-based company that specializes in solutions for tracking and locating missing vehicles within urban canyon environments, currently utilizes LoRa and the Helium Network to track and recover lost/stolen assets in Belgium. Using their trackers to report an object’s location with Helium/LoRa, Viloc has many examples of how they are keeping micromobility businesses profitable in the EU.

Example 1 

  • Allsetra initiated a collaboration with Greenmo, a micromobility scooter business

  • Greenmo had been suffering significant business losses via theft of the batteries that power their scooters

  • To address this issue, Allsetra started a pilot program where they placed 10 of their Helium-powered recovery transmitters in scooter batteries

  • Within 4 weeks, 1 of these batteries was stolen, and using Helium + their transmitter, Allsetra was able to not only recover the battery but also locate a warehouse with more than 30 other stolen scooter batteries

Example 2

  • Stolen bicycles are a common occurrence in Europe

  • Allsetra has partnered with multiple community bicycle companies to place their Helium trackers in bikes

  • On a weekly basis, Allsetra recovery transmitters on the Helium Network locate stolen bicycles with a 97 percent success rate, including one Urban Arrow cargo bike located within 24 hours just last week

  • To do this, Allsetra receives a notification from the insurance company or directly from the customer and adjusts the tracker’s interval via Helium to a faster rate, allowing them to quickly find the stolen bicycle

The Helium Network has proven to be reliable and effective in micromobility asset-tracking use cases, such as with Allsetra, and 1663’s custom-built solutions on the network can help save micromobility companies from major property or financial losses.
