Abstract
ADAScooter is addressing concerns regarding the safety of electric scooters by developing a safety device called ScootPilot. ScootPilot is an advanced driver assistance system that monitors the environment for potential hazards and adjusts the speed of the e-scooter accordingly. It aims to prioritize the safety of riders and pedestrians by preventing accidents or collisions. The device includes a radar sensor for obstacle detection, a speed controller, and an automatic brake in emergency scenarios. The development of ScootPilot is divided into three stages: proof-of-concept, engineering prototype, and production phase.

However, there are potential risks involved with ScootPilot, including over-reliance on the system, potential government restrictions, and user acceptance. Benefits include reduced risk of e-scooter collisions, public compliance with regulations, road safety, and economic benefits. The success of ScootPilot depends on user behavior and decision-making, government decisions, and marketing efforts to encourage user acceptance.

ADAScooter has a competitive advantage by increasing the user base as currently, a majority of e-scooter riders are men due to safety concerns women have surrounding the use of e-scooters. ScootPilot could influence people previously concerned with safety to become new users, reducing the risk of collisions. This would compel e-scooter rental companies to incorporate safety products such as ScootPilot.

The success of ScootPilot depends on user behavior and decision-making, government decisions, and marketing efforts to encourage user acceptance. Ultimately, ScootPilot can contribute to the adoption of more sustainable forms of transportation by making e-scooters a safer alternative.
