Ford expands Smart Mobility pilot program to deliver improved access to healthcare in The Gambia; motorcycles with sensors

Green Car Congress

Ford has equipped 50 motorcycles serving Riders for Health with sensor technology so the medical services group can collect a variety of data, including mapping coordinates, to improve the delivery of medical services and supplies—particularly in remote areas of the West African country. The project uses Ford’s OpenXC ( earlier post ) sensor kits fitted to the motorcycles to gather information. For healthcare practitioners in The Gambia, motorcycles are essential.
