A company in Spain has developed a new electric scooter that connects to a smartphone and alerts family members in the event of a crash. The companion app can access selected contacts within your phone to notify them of the accident and your location. Now, a scooter really isn’t an all-terrain type of vehicle and it certainly can’t harvest wheat or pull a livestock trailer but the concept is still exciting to us! Imagine this technology in a tractor, combine, or semi? Like the technology used by the Xkuty scooter and its companion app, if you rollover in the tractor or crash the semi, your phone could possibly alert your family and let them know!
Seems like a great idea to me, what do you think? Could this type of technology and companion app work for today’s farmers?
