Bike share platform sees biometrics boost from Jumio

Bike share platform sees biometrics boost from Jumio

Wunder Mobility is using biometric customer identity verification for its new electric bike share scheme in Europe through a partnership with Jumio.

Under the partnership, biometric customer checks are being introduced through an app which onboards Wunder Mobility users with a photo of an identity credential and a selfie for facial authentication. The app uses liveness detection and determines whether there is a match with the credential. Each time the user wants to hire a bike, they must undergo a fresh selfie match session.

Wunder Mobility offers software platforms and vehicles for white-label vehicle sharing schemes currently operating in more than 900 cities worldwide. It has unveiled its own ebike model, designed in collaboration with manufacturer Yadea. The bike offers a host of features including a long range.

The approach is to reduce fraud and vandalism that has seen other companies simply have to withdraw fleets from some cities.

A similar partnership for IDnow to supply biometric authentication technology for vehicle-sharing solutions provider M-Tribes was unveiled earlier this year.

Jumio recently announced a shift into the identity orchestration market, though the company will also continue to focus on providing selfie biometrics, as in the Wunder deal.
