Self-Driving Scooters Are Coming to City Sidewalks
Google has met few daring ideas it doesn't like. But three years ago, the idea of a self-driving bicycle was just too much. It mocked the concept of an autonomous bicycle in an April Fools' Day video. Why would anyone need a bike that rode itself? Since then the electric bike and scooter-sharing craze has stormed into cities. Companies have burned through cash as fast as they've raised it, largely due to the high costs needed to pay a staff to corral badly parked scooters and re-charge them.
