The Washington Post reported that “Superpedestrian — a Cambridge, Mass.-based micro-mobility company known for making electric bicycles …that the company plans to begin producing an “industrial grade e-scooter” capable of operating on a single charge for several days and self-diagnosing mechanical issues, removing itself from circulation using “vehicle intelligence.””  The December 3, 2018 article entitled “An MIT-born startup has a bold new claim: An electric scooter that repairs itself” included these comments

Superpedestrian was founded at MIT and began operations in 2013.

Though he declined to name the specific companies involved, Biderman said Superpedestrian is partnering with major ride-hailing companies around the world, and riders can expect to see the devices on the road in the “first half” of 2019.

Companies such as Alphabet, Uber and Lyft have poured millions into the upstart e-scooter revolution.

Last month, Ford, the legacy automaker from Detroit, purchased Spin, a San Francisco-based electric scooter-sharing company.

Stay tuned because this could be a game changer!
