The demand for electrical assistance for strollers is growing. Comfort and safety are the key criteria for nine out of ten parents when buying a stroller. This is the result of a survey conducted by Bosch between women and men with children aged 0 to 4 years of age, as well as to prospective parents.
For them, the system has been designed eStroller, an electric drive smart for strollers with two electric motors with the control the acceleration and braking , and equipped with the latest in comfort, security, and connectivity via Bluetooth with the mobile phone.
"Bosch wants its mobility solutions to offer help, even before the child can walk, providing smart mobility in all areas of life," says Hartung. The drive unit of the system consists of two electric motors of low noise level in the rear axle , along with a Bluetooth module and a system of intelligent sensors. The sensors, which are also used in smartphones, measuring factors such as the speed and the acceleration of the strollers, by the time you evaluate the road surface on which it is moving. Using algorithms, they can be calculated in fractions of a second what the mother or the father want to do next.
On an uphill, the engine can help automatically push the stroller, as an electric bike "eBike" . Downhill, intervene to help curb. If the parents drop the cart, the motor brake prevents the roll without control, and the electromechanical lock activates the parking brake. In line with the typical approach of Bosch to combine the highest technical standards with an operational easy-to-use, the system eStroller do not need to switches or to additional buttons on the handle of the cart.
The electrical assistance not only increases comfort and safety, but also improves the ergonomics of the baby stroller. The user testing of Bosch showed that the e-system-stroller can greatly improve the posture of the parents, because it takes much less effort to push the cart uphill, on uneven ground or against the wind . At the same time, the electric drive autofrenante relieves considerably the strain of the back when descending a downhill. The help to the address of the system also provides clear advantages when it is pushed with a single hand. Among other things, this means that the curves are easier to manage. In addition, the drive system helps to maintain the cart in its course with a side slope. In the end, often the parents push it with one hand, for example, when they take his eldest son with the other hand.Connectivity
users can choose between three levels of servo assistance, using the associated application to your smartphone (available for Android and iOS).
The app communicates with the system eStroller via Bluetooth. It also shows the charge level of removable battery and alerts the user time, when you are running low. The practical and lightweight lithium-ion 18-volt lithium-stroller is housed in a compartment with a lock.
this Is the same battery used in electric tools standard Bosch, such as the drivers without the cable, which allows the battery to be able to use for powering other devices, and vice versa, in the case that you need a replacement battery. is With a charging time of about two hours and a half, the fully charged battery offers a autonomy of up to 15 kilometers, depending on the level of assistance selected and the weight of the cart.
parents can also recharge your smartphone using the USB port of the system. The app can be used in addition to activate the alarm function, for example, when the parents leave the cart parked outside of a café. Whenever you set a Bluetooth connection with your smartphone , a warning appears if someone tries to take the stroller. In addition, an alarm will sound from the built-in speaker of the car and the parking brake is activated automatically. In the event that the battery runs out while in motion, the stroller can continue to be used in a normal way, without noticeable resistance from the motor.Updated Date: 12 September 2019, 02:01
