ROLO provides an effective, practical, ecological and connected transport system solution. It introduces the vision of a "collaborative" transport, which also draws energy from the "participation" of the passenger.
ROLO, an exchange of energy
Obviously, the passenger will certainly not have to run on the treadmill. With the equivalent of a healthy and peaceful walk it will cover much longer distances, supply some of the energy to the vehicle (the other takes care of solar energy) and stay active.
How ROLO is made, an autonomous electric scooter with a treadmill
ROLO is a personal project of Alejandro Otálora, born from the response to the requests of a company for sustainable and efficient personal vehicles.
It features a folding system which makes it easy to carry and easy to store, there are mini lidars that detect and avoid obstacles ahead.
A user can order ROLO via an app. A dynamic rate informs the user of the cost of the service even before ordering. Such as? Based on some parameters such as distance to travel and battery life.
Once the user has accepted and pressed the order button, just wait for ROLO to arrive. Yes, because this treadmill scooter will be able to reach you independently thanks to its artificial intelligence. When ROLO arrives, Lazarus, get up and walk. The scooter will start moving and will take you to your destination.
An interesting concept for vehicles with less energy waste and more healthy activities even for those who use a means of transport.
