The NIU U-Series is a second generation electric smart scooter created by an innovative Chinese company that is founded by the former CTO of Baidu (the Chinese Google) and a former employee of Microsoft. Their purpose is to create a high quality electric scooter with the latest technologies and design.

The U1 has been created using the latest design science and technologies. All parts of the scooter including the design and motor are optimized for city usage and have been created on the basis of a study with 150,000 riders and more than 1 million kilometers of usage data from NIU’s popular N-Series and M-Series scooters. The result is a scooter that is purpose-built for the city.

The U1 has received extra attention to safety. The scooter is equiped with an EBS braking system for a braking distance of just 1.4 meters. The system also provides in a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) or regenerative braking in which energy from braking is returned to the battery.

The U1 headlamp uses a state-of-the-art silicon on silicon LED technology. This technology outputs greater luminosity while reducing energy use. The lamp has been designed to provide low and high-beams for a comfortable visibility field.

The U1 has a 360° Light Halo around the scooter for safety to ensure pedestrians and drivers can see you at night. To further increase safety, the U1 has automatic turn indicator lightings. The U1 also has hazard lamps.

The U1 is a true smart scooter that connects to a smart phone. Everything from battery monitoring to GPS to ride history, the NIU app keeps the driver connected and up-to-date with the whereabouts and health of the U1. The app provides in an anti-theft system that warns the driver when the scooter is moved. With GPS it is possible to track the position of the scooter in real time.

Electric Scooter: clean air / healthy city air

Disc Brakes: air pollution

Air Pollution by Disc Brakes causes 20% of the total emissions by a standard car and the pollution (ultra-fine dust) is more toxic for humans than exhaust fumes.

"Vehicle tailpipe emissions are going down, but the emissions from disc brakes will remain to some extent, even if you drive an electric car," Weber said. "Therefore, this kind of process will continue to play out in the future and will be an important consideration when we look at the health effects of particulate matter." (Phys.org)
