Layer has teamed up with Chinese automotive company Nio to design an electric scooter that uses artificial intelligence and machine-learning technology to autonomously take you on your preferred routes.
The smart scooter, called Pal, is a “near-future concept” that aims to alleviate the growing issue of congestion in cities by offering flexible and convenient last-mile travel.
Described by Layer as a “mobile platform”, the Pal scooter uses Nio’s intelligent AI system called Nomi to become accustomed to the driver’s routes over time, eventually being able to autonomously take them to their destination.
A modular, electric battery powers the scooter, which can be recharged in the trunk of any Nio vehicle or at the user’s home.
