THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF AN ULTRALIGHT ELECTRIC SCOOTER
Keywords:electric scooter, conceptual design, last-mile distances, personal transportation, storage
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.
