Considering now and the near future of transport, after “Uber”s and before “Hyperloop”s, there is a sweet moment of small scale transport systems; a trend of eco-electro-customizable vehicles which is quite appreciated! Apps like “Lime”, “Bird”, “Baunce” & … are sponsoring this idea with the help of electro-bikes and scooters. Xiaomi , Segway, BMW & … are now investing on production of personalized public transporters. The idea of eco-sharing and eco-production is the main reason to develop these transportation systems.
The main advantage of these scooters, is pollution and traffic reduction hence speeding up transportation.
In addition to the above said; Scooty scooter is electrically controlled and fully adjustable to urban life style!
This device uses the User smartphone as the main controller core with personalized data. (That means every individual can use his/her smart phone to customize cruise controller, distance smart brakes, weight of the carriee , light , app visualization , navigation & … )
Yet sharing no personal information with the next user.
This scooter can be used both public and personally. Therefore; a set of add on features are let to be designed, 3d printed and added to the device (open-source) to let every user with certain needs be happy with its personalized platform.
The motion system is being designed to use both in-wheel (optimized) and normal electro motors with gearbox (higher power).
The main body has a casted aluminium structure and the side flaps. These side flaps and the deck can also be customized with free source files, materials, colours and designs.
The front wheel is thinner but bigger in diameter to increase the handling and the back wheel is thicker but smaller to increase the power and balance. The honeycomb tires increase the suspension & flexibility while eliminating the need of springs.
The body form is subordinated from the caster angle, therefore; the structure is very stable even in case of critical forces.
The handlebar has been replaced with an electric command-grip which allows a 60 degrees rotation angle of the wheel. This is done with a joy-stick grip placed on the fixed handle-grip.
All the other grips can be removed/added or repositioned for comfort or further adjustments.
