Just like any other country, cities of Saudi Arabia, in general, are witnessing many challenges of road safety and traffic congestion.
Jeddah is one such city of Saudi Arabia, where two university students came up with an idea of launching an e-scooter sharing platform to deal with these problems. Because the e-scooters are fuel-efficient, easy to handle, support the environment and are also feasible to use and move around in the traffic due to their compact size.
The founders of the Dabeeb got an inspiration to jump into the micro-mobility industry when they found it difficult to commute within the university campus. Dabeeb works with cities, universities and complements existing transit systems.
After understanding the concept, the first thing we did was to research market trends and users’ behavior over there.
Saudi Arabia is already including the smart micro-mobility and smart mobility projects into urban planning as the first step in making smart cities. Daily commuters, university students and tourists were the core userbase.
When the client approached us with an idea, their initial plan was to start with an e-scooter.
We also suggested them to add services like dock free rental and door to door mobility so that users don’t have to worry about traffic or finding a parking station
e-scooter hardware is as important as e-scooter software (e-scooter mobile app).
These e-scooters come with the latest IoT controller, allows an e-scooter app development company to accommodate some groundbreaking features in the app.
Since they were dealing with multiple vehicles simultaneously (e-scooter and e-bikes), the main challenge we faced was to make a single platform that is compatible with multiple vehicles.
But our technical team worked hard to solve the issue. We developed a platform that is not only compatible with multiple vehicles but has a distinct pricing module for each vehicle.
We designed the app in such a way that one QR code will redirect users to the app store or website based on their device.
