Bosch to introduce the electric baby buggy
After the electric car and the electric bicycle, now the electric baby buggy sets in. The e-buggy that Bosch developed is equipped with sensors and two electric motors fixed at the axle behind. Pushing it is as easy as a child’s play.
According to Bosch, the e-stroller, as the buggy is called, is practical and safe. The sensors measure the acceleration and speed, and they also examine the ground on which the e-stroller rides. This way, it automatically gives more power when running uphill, and brakes when the buggy is set free. When running downhill and on broken ground, stability is guaranteed.
An app provides some extra options, although it’s not a remote control to make the buggy move like a toy, but you can easily use the parking brake or activate the siren with it.
The buggy has an exchangeable 18 Volt lithium-ion battery, the same as a Bosch drilling machine has. Depending on the track, the battery has a 15 km autonomy, and charging takes two hours.
Bosch has tested the buggy successfully in bad weather circumstances, although using it with gusts of more than 60 km/hour is to be avoided.
Bosch has signed an agreement with the Swedish baby buggy manufacturer, Emmaljunga. The e-stroller will be commercialized next year.
