Abstract: In the beginning, electric scooter was targeting police and other government departments for mass production applications, for the general public lack of product appeal and propaganda. Today, let us have a look at the development process of electric scooter and Airwheel.
At the end of the last century, Dean Kamen, one of the developers of IBOT, founded a company, which was specialised in the research and development of the electric self-balancing scooter, and in next March, they were into actual volume production. In modern society, there are more and more creative and original transports appearing. And self-balancing scooter is one of them with growing popularity and there are several world famous brands, such as Airwheel. Today, we will see the evolvement of self-balancing electric scooter and Airwheel.
In general, the electric scooter is only slightly wider than the human body, so as not to cause serious traffic congestion, which makes the driving shuttle in between pedestrians flexibly, without occupying the roadway. Taking the Airwheel mini electric scooter as an example, the speed of self-balancing electric scooter is relatively slower, which greatly reduces the risk and the energy consumption. Besides, products are mostly equipped with three to five precision solid-state sensing instruments, which coordinate with control of the vehicle. Airwheel is based on aerospace attitude control theory, fuzzy software algorithm and gyroscope system to maintain balance by leaning forward and backward.
Compared with the traditional means of transport, Airwheel’s mobility is relatively stronger which includes an electronic key grade control, anti-theft security, discrete computer operation and other details. For modern congested traffic, it does satisfy the original design concept: smooth the human transporter. Airwheel intelligent electric scooter is using lithium battery energy driven, and single charge can ensure 20-50km mileage, and can reach a maximum speed of 18-20km. with the invention of Airwheel Z-series standing up electric scooter, E-series folding e bike and R-series electric moped bike, Airwheel can realize an infinite range due to the replaceable battery design. Other than that, the added USB port makes the battery more versatile, as it can charge the daily electronics. Since we are filled with kinds of electronics, such design comes as a blessing to the riders.
In the future, the electric scooter will be more suitable for the public to execute more functions.
