The Italian Federation of the Blind and Visually Impaired, the University of Salford in the United Kingdom, and an Amsterdam-based micromobility startup are all working together to develop a standardized noise for electric scooters throughout Europe. The popularity of electric scooters may be mainly attributed to this newfound fascination with the realm of micromobility. Yet, this means that many people are trying out electric scooters for the very first time. While simple in concept, mastering the art of riding an electric scooter requires time and effort. So, it was believed by the aforementioned researchers to be smart to standardize the electric scooters with a single sound, analogous to a vehicle horn.
Everyone involved in daily commutes—drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists—must adjust to the new realities. The ultimate objective of the project is to help persons with visual impairments, such as blindness, by generating something louder than a little bell without contributing to unnecessary noise pollution. The groups behind this initiative believe it will go beyond Europe and ultimately include the whole globe in an effort to make riding electric scooters safer. The optimum noises to be utilized for future e-scooter users are now being tested using virtual settings and VR technologies.
The safety of Nanrobot's passengers is a top priority, thus the company takes proactive measures to keep its riders protected at all times. Potential riders may choose from a variety of features, such as dual brakes, brilliant LED lighting and taillights, and reasonably priced protective gear. We insist that everyone wear a helmet when riding, since it is the single most effective strategy to avoid serious head trauma in the event of an accident. Always use caution while venturing out on your e-scooter or e-bike.
