This is dope. Feels like the next generation of scooter startups here in the US (Lime, Bird, etc.). At the same time, if residents freak out when self-driving food delivery bots arrive on the streets, how are they going to feel about these?
Cultural attitudes are the biggest barrier. Hopefully we can overcome them. 🤗
@nickabouzeid Probably going to get plenty of resistance. I saw a garage full of these a few weeks back though, pretty sweet looking
@ggleeson01 Here in SF? Where? Would love to check them out 😳
@nickabouzeid Ya in SF. I don't remember where it was (sorry I'm new). I was in a Lyft and we stopped in front of a pretty unassuming garage filled with, what I'm assuming were, these yellow scooters
**EDIT: pardon the hype- realizing that these could have been Skip scooters. too many scooter start-ups to keep track of. 🙃
@ggleeson01 Hard to keep track sometimes! 😅
This is the missing link... Definitely an upgrade to Lime and Bird. Those are amazing... but adding self parking, autonomous deployment and recharging makes this a billion dollar idea.
They took a brilliant new idea and solved many of the pain points: City concerns about scooters scattered everywhere, Demand Management now scooters can be deployed to where demand is and Finally... when the battery is weak... return home.
This team is awesome... they are design thinkers in every sense. I hope they raise a massive round.

@glenmoore_cj Finally someone willing to say what we've all been thinking about Scootbee, folks
@glenmoore_cj @basicallydan Both this comment and Scootbee seem equally legit.
This is great! Would love this in my little city
It seems interesting. No info on the website but I guess it will be USA only.

The cost-per-scooter seems like it would ruin the business model. The only reason that Lime and Bird have a shot at making a profit is because a single scooter needs to run a few hundred trips to pay for itself.
This scooter would either have to run many more trips (to cover the extra hardware cost) or it would need to be more expensive. The latter is unpalatable and the former seems unlikely (these scooters get abused on the streets; I can't imagine a single scooter lasting more than a year).
Also, how will these things detect traffic signals??
I'll believe it when I see it, hardware-wise.
While it’s certainly not for me, I’m encouraged by what this means for mobility in general. This is low emission transportation and the technology could be used to transform the lives of people who need special accommodations to get around or get personal items - people who are physically disabled, injured, elderly, blind, etc.
I'm from Singapore too!!! Haven't seen any of these being used in the streets yet. Any clues on the pricing?
I really like the idea. However I couldn't find on the website or anywhere what incentives they plan to implement prevent bad actors?
For instance, what would prevent someone from jumping on one of these while it was on self navigation mode to a person?
@besttimyouknow tase that MF
@besttimyouknow Idea for this is to detect the proximity of the requester's mobile device and only get enabled if the person riding is the same one. If it detects that another person jumps on it, then it could literally stop, notify the requester of an incident why it would be late.
Yes, resolving the negative scenarios (there would be a lot) would be a challenge..

From an idea standpoint, this would be the best tech ever to be brought into reality.
From a realistic standpoint, very very difficult. We're already having a hard time perfecting autonomous vehicles and it's even worrying to know how it'll go since the Uber incident in Arizona.
What makes this even more difficult is the sensor placement. The scooter would have to follow traffic guidelines, avoid collisions, and even has to go fast enough to stay on two wheels (unless they are using 3, then it should be somewhat fine).
I do back the idea, but I'm not holding my breath on the release date in public.
Wow, this is amazing! I am wondering if it have any connection with "honestbee" delivery service in SE Asia?
super duper concept

This is a very rough idea not a product or prototype, if you think Tesla is overhyped, this would be a few magnitudes (meaning a lot of them) above Tesla.
This is freaking genius. Not quite there yet for the tech but this will undoubtedly be the future of last mile personal transport in cities.

I’m a fan of #RedefiningMobility!
Once testing is done in Singapore &/or the #OnDemand #eScooter
is Operational, advise.
