For our second product generation, we’ve used all of our in-house expertise to create a fully self-designed and developed scooter. Yet, there are some key features where we continue to rely on the experience of world-class partners. Right at the forefront: the connectivity of the new unu Scooter!
Thanks to Vodafone's global IoT SIM card, the new unu Scooters will be broadcasting on the Internet of Things for the first time. More specifically, our second product generation is equipped with smart features that enable new forms of urban mobility: With the help of the smartphone and the unu App, the digital key of the unu Scooter can easily be shared with friends and family. In addition, the scooter’s location and battery status can be seen in the app. Digital theft protection keeps the scooter safe and informs owners about any illegal movements of their scooter – these can then directly be shared with the police.

How can a school founded 100 years ago still have such a lasting impact on the design world and what can modern mobility companies learn from its ideals?
