Comparison of driving characteristics between e-scooters and e-bikes

M.Suzuki, K.EndoConference room

  • In Japan, some e-scooters are beginning to be recognized as a type of pedestrian, just as bicycles are considered a type of pedestrian. 
  • I introduce many classifications of e-scooters and their complex rules.
  • I investigated the specifications of e-scooters and analyzed their hazards and subjective evaluations.
  • The same road surface conditions can cause vibration in a bicycle, but the vibration is not transmitted to the rider, making the bicycle more comfortable to ride. On the other hand, electric scooters transmit vibrations directly to the rider, making the rider feel very uncomfortable, especially on downhill slopes.
