22Motors is bringing ‘pothole mapping and warning’ feature to its Flow electric scooter
According to a recent disclosure by 22Motors, one of the notable high-tech features of the company’s ‘Flow’ electric scooter will be a ‘pothole mapping and warning’ feature, which will enable riders to better avoid road potholes or to altogether avoid the roads which are in a bad condition.
The ‘pothole mapping and warning’ feature of 22Motors’ affordably-priced $1,125 Flow electric scooter will, therefore, warn the riders of potholes in a specific road while they are commuting.
As per the information shared by 22Motors, the mentioned high-tech feature of the ‘smart-connected’ Flow electric scooter chiefly works with the help of a combination of sensors and GPS location, for the purpose of creating a virtual map of the potholes and other road imperfections in a particular area.
Sharing details about the noteworthy feature, 22Motors CEO and co-founder Parveen Kharb said that road potholes and bumps are being spotted by the company with the algorithms which it is running “to detect road conditions by using a built-in accelerometer and gyro, mapping with GPS coordinates.”
The ‘pothole mapping and warning’ feature which 22Motors is introducing in its Flow electric scooter in an indication of the apparently increasing use of vehicle diagnostics by automakers, in order to offer ongoing services to their customers rather than following the old practice of ending a transaction once the vehicle has been sold.
