On 8.3.2021 a City of York Council employee said: "the e-scooters currently use GPS to track their location and therefore their proximity to the parking bays. This can limit the accuracy (as depicted in your photos).
"TIER are currently working on a new positioning technology to ensure much greater accuracy from parking, which will be implemented in York in the next few weeks. Further information about how this works can be found here -"
That link says Tier: "will implement Fantasmo's "Camera Positioning System” (CPS), a new positioning technology that is ten times more accurate than GPS and can validate e-scooter parking within 20 cm or less with a phone camera alone."
For a list of all sites documented and any issues see #164663.
