Smart features have revolutionized the way we ride and interact with electric scooters, making our experience easier and more convenient. In this post, we’ll explore the many smart features electric scooters should have to optimize your riding experience.
By integrating intelligent features, manufacturers have made scooters more user-friendly and versatile. These smart features enable users to personalize their riding experience and enhance safety on the road. Let's delve deeper into the key benefits of embracing smart technology in electric scooters.
When it comes to smart scooters, improved connectivity is one of the main advantages. Smart scooters can connect to smartphones or other devices via Bluetooth or wireless networks. Smart connectivity allows users to access valuable information about their scooter, such as battery level, trip history, speed, amongst others.
Dedicated scooter apps like Apollo’s innovative software allow users to customize their electric scooter’s settings with a fine degree of control, dialing in parameters like variable regenerative braking and acceleration to their exact specifications.
Apollo’s app works with embedded IoT sensors in its latest e-scooters to provide real-time feedback, remote monitoring, and specific fixes and updates.
Wireless connectivity enables firmware updates, ensuring that your scooter is always up to date with the latest features and improvements.
Smart scooters also offer enhanced security features that protect your investment. With built-in GPS tracking, you can easily locate your scooter in case it gets stolen. This feature provides peace of mind, knowing that even if your scooter goes missing, you have a higher chance of recovering it.
Additionally, many smart scooters often come with remote locking capabilities, allowing you to lock and unlock your scooter with a simple tap on your smartphone. Furthermore, some scooters can send notifications to your smartphone if any unauthorized access or movement is detected.
Electric scooters often come with additional features that enhance the overall riding experience. For example, some smart scooters have built-in navigation systems that provide turn-by-turn directions, making it easier to explore new areas without getting lost.
Others have integrated LED lights that automatically adjust their brightness based on the surrounding environment, ensuring optimal visibility at all times.
Most electric scooter models these days have regenerative braking systems that convert kinetic energy into electrical energy, extending the scooter's battery life and reducing the need for frequent recharging.
Apollo’s app allows you to dial in the exact amount of regenerative braking you want, balancing brake feel and braking efficiency your way.
When choosing an electric scooter with smart features, it's essential to consider several key factors. These features can greatly enhance your overall riding experience and make your scooter more versatile.
A well-designed display panel makes it effortless to monitor vital information while riding. Opt for a scooter with an intuitive interface that displays speed, battery level, and riding modes clearly. Some advanced models even provide real-time navigation assistance, ensuring that you stay on the right track.
The display panel also provides you with real-time battery level updates, so you never have to worry about running out of power unexpectedly. With this information at your fingertips, you can plan your routes accordingly and make sure you always have enough juice to reach your destination.
Make sure to choose a smart scooter with a long-lasting battery that can keep up with your daily commutes. Look for features such as regenerative braking or energy-efficient systems that can extend the scooter's range. Some scooters allow you to monitor battery health and receive notifications when it's time for a recharge.
Some smart scooters offer energy-efficient systems that optimize power consumption. These systems intelligently manage the scooter's performance, ensuring that the battery lasts longer without compromising on speed or functionality.
Aside from the primary benefits of smart technology, certain features greatly enhance the overall convenience of electric scooters. These features allow for a more seamless and hassle-free riding experience.
Smart scooters often come equipped with an intelligent lighting system. This system automatically adjusts the brightness of the headlights and taillights based on ambient lighting conditions, ensuring your visibility on the road.
Some scooters feature LED strips and swag lighting that can be customized to match your style and increase visibility.
Additionally, smart scooters should have turn signals that are visible from the front and rear of the vehicle and that turn off on their own (self-cancel) to avoid unnecessary and possibly dangerous misapprehension on the road.
Apollo’s 2023 scooters come with self-canceling handlebar-end turn signals and use smart 360-degree lighting and turn and braking signals for maximum visibility.
A smartphone holder or mount is a handy addition that allows you to place your device securely while riding. This integration enables you to utilize navigation apps, control music playback, or answer calls hands-free. Moreover, some electric scooters offer USB charging ports, ensuring that your smartphone doesn't run out of battery during your ride.
The Apollo Pro 2023 goes even further, offering riders the choice of using a built-in dot-matrix display – easy to read in all light conditions – or using their phone-as-display with the built-in Quad Lock phone mount system.
Whatever the latest smart features for electric scooters, you’ll find Apollo’s engineers integrating them intelligently into current and future models, setting the standard for the scooters of the future.
