Abstract

It can be observed that today we live in a hectic environment, filled with lots of strict deadlines
which we are obliged to meet by society standards. Today we have to be in a place at ten a.m. and one
kilometer away at 10:05. Transportation is probably one of the most essential instruments of our success in
modern society, and fits in the same category as skill. In this idea, the paper develops the design of an
electric scooter having mechanisms used to improve the transportation and storage characteristics, and in
the end the best solution will be proposed. There will also be presented some design ideas of three
constructive solutions iteratively refined.
