Content
Standardizing terms, definitions, and classification of powered micromobility vehicles serves several purposes. Standardization will:
  • Provide a commonality of terms, definitions, and classifications of powered micromobility vehicles for industry, consumers, and public agencies (e.g., regulators and partnering agencies);
  • Reduce discrepancies in terminology used across jurisdictions and sectors; and
  • Allow public agencies to clarify policies related to powered micromobility vehicles.
This technical report has been developed according to the following guiding principles. It should:
  • Provide functional definitions;
  • Be consistent with current industry practice and existing literature to the extent practicable;
  • Be useful across disciplines; and
  • Be clear and cogent.
