• The challenge
Designing Bosch' smart electric drive unit for eStrollers including battery system.
• The result
A high-tech solution coming in a beautifully integrated, non-technical design. The system comprises two smart electric motors and a battery pack with a removable battery. Designing the mechanical parking brake, including the wheels was also part of our concept.
Designing a platform to provide comfort and safety for baby strollers
The Bosch electric drive unit is the jewel of the eStroller empowering and supporting the user in any situation.
The components of the Bosch eStroller system - two smart electric motors mounted to the stroller’s rear axis, a battery pack with a removable lithium-ion battery, based on Bosch’ rechargeable battery system and a parking brake - are all designed to work perfectly together.
With its minimized technical component sizes and a seamless visual consistency between all components, the drive unit is designed for maximum integration with the stroller.
The electric drive unit is designed to ensure an outstanding usability.
An LED ring on both sides offers clear indication of battery status, bluetooth pairing mode and brake setting.
The battery is removable for charging.
The parking brake, with its clear indication of color, lets the user know when the stroller is in safety mode.
The magic is always in the detail
The Bosch electric drive unit for eStrollers is a modular platform. It can be adapted to various eStrollers and electric drive supported products in the future.
We are proud that the battery unit will be integrated in all eStrollers with a Bosch electric drive unit. Moreover, traditional Swedish manufacturer Emmaljunga decided to carry over an essential part of our design concept to implement it to their eStroller NXT90e.
