Title of the Proposal: A modified electric scooter with a self-returning function.
Description: Capitalizing on the growing trend of self-driving cars and the increasing popularity of personal electric scooters, this project creates a modified electric scooter with a self-returning function that enables it to be driven back to the pre-programmed locations after use. The users scan their IC/EZlink card to start and end the ride, upon which each scooter enters into a driverless mode and uses its internal GPS system with multiple motion sensors to return to its docking station.
