The WheeM-i Lets Users Book their Rides Through an App

Designed by Italdesign, the WheeM-i — short for Wheelchair Mobility Integration — proposes the first-ever shared micro-mobility service for wheelchair users.

The 100% electric and semi-autonomous carrier provides people with mobility restrictions the freedom to access otherwise hard-to-get-to locations around the city.

The new mobility solution brings the latest driving assistance technology and electric propulsion together.

The WheeM-i is a collaboration between Italedsign and Etisalat. The companies joined forces to allow users to book their rides through a smartphone app and map out the best possible route.

After booking a ride, users can make their way to the closest hub and get on board the vehicle.

Once they’ve arrived at their destination, users can return the vehicle to a hub near their destination.
