In 2019, Superpedestrian ventured into the shared micro-mobility industry. As Superpedestrian’s sole industrial designer, I set to define and deliver such a purposefully build scooter for sharing industry. I was responsible for shaping product definition, conducting research, and defining ergonomic envelope and aesthetical language. During the engineering stage, I guided engineering solutions, ensuring they are aligned with the design intents.
A scooter fits for sharing industry needs to be inclusive to various user groups and to handle urban road conditions and traffic.
Soon after I started competitive research, I realized at the time (2018-2019) no off-the-shelf solutions met our safety and ergonomic expectation. This lad the need for ergonomic testing to define the vehicle geometry for an inclusive shared scooter type.
