Design and Development of a Micromobility Smart Electric Scooter to Revolutionize Urban Commuting 2024-28-0021

Urban areas around the world are facing an increasing number of issues, such asair pollution, parking shortages, traffic congestion, and inadequate transit options, all of which necessitate innovative solutions. Lot of people are becoming interested in micromobility in urban areas as a replacement for quick excursions and round trips to get to or from transportation services (e.g., Offices, Institutions, Hospitals, Tourist spots, etc.). This research examines the critical role that micromobility plays, concentrating on the effectiveness of micromobility smart electric scooters in resolving urgent urban problems. Micromobility which includes both human and electric-powered vehicles presents a viable substitute for normal and short-distance urban commuting. This study presents a micromobility smart electric scooter that is portable and easy to operate, with the goal of transforming urban transportation. 3D model was designed using SOLIDWORKS and analysed using ANSYS. For strength and lighter weight aluminium 6061 T6 alloy was used, the design also showcases collapsible seat integration and foldable handle. MATLAB Simulink was used to size the motor, battery and simulate the powertrain system. This scooter has a 350W hub motor and a 48V 20Ah Li-Ion Battery which makes commuting easy while taking into account issues like economic feasibility and environmental sustainability. The vehicle has range between 26-30 km and maximum speed of 20 kmph. An MIT App Inventor application with Bluetooth connectivity is used to switch the powertrain using smart phone via connecting the vehicle through Bluetooth. By encouraging the use of these cutting-edge automobiles, communities may lessen traffic problems and create a more sustainable and liveable urban environment.
