New development of German engineers eStrolleris a real device that parents can experience in the fourth quarter of 2019. The universal fashion for converting vehicles to electric traction has reached baby strollers. Bosch, a well-known manufacturer of automotive electronics, has developed a small electric drive complex, which includes the actual motor, battery, sensors and an electronic unit that provides communication with the application.
The principle of operation of the electric drive is not completelyexcludes the participation of parents in the walk of the baby. The engine facilitates the movement of the stroller when lifting or when driving on soft ground. Of significant importance are the brakes that automatically operate in the event of a spontaneous movement of the stroller on an inclined surface. Special sensors constantly monitor several parameters that affect ride comfort, such as acceleration, speed and type of coverage.
A special application on the smartphone will allowmonitor the remaining charge in the battery and signal an attempt to steal a stroller. At the same time, a speaker is installed on the stroller itself, which emits a sound signal when trying to steal. Additionally, the brake automatically applies.
Walking radius on a single battery chargecan reach 15 km, depending on the road surface and terrain. It takes two hours to recharge the battery, and a USB connector mounted on the stroller will provide parents with an additional source of energy for smartphones. When the battery is completely discharged, the stroller turns into a familiar stroller.
The eStroller electric complex will be installed in wheelchairs of the Swedish company Emmaljunga by the end of the year.
