Department of Electrical Engineering
As the world grows and cities become more crowded, we develop new ways of transportation. In the last few years, we have seen an increase of electric scooters around downtown Denver and its surrounding areas, which makes transportation much faster during any time of day. Unfortunately, the companies who manage the scooter rentals do not have many safety measurements in place that insure a safe ride. This is where we as students at the University of Colorado at Denver and future engineers come in. We have developed a safety system that will prevent riders from crashing into anything in front of them as well as always knowing if something is behind them. Our motivation behind this project comes from the unfortunate event that took Cameron Hagan’s life after a collision with a car.
