Macurator will introduce its island-based e-kickboard service EV Pass with the support from Soongsil University Startup Support Group at Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) held at the Dubai World Trade Center on Oct. 6 to 10.
EV Pass is a new corporate made by CEO Kim Yeon-tae to set up new standards of e-kickboard sharing service with EV Shop and Jeju Smart Mobility Lab last December.
EV Pass provides the solution to solve the problems of shared kickboards. Eight EV shop branches that have been set up for the past eight years have been transformed as EV station, so at the convenience of one payment, users of this service can go around Jeju and receive the necessary services. Also, the moving station exclusively for e-kickboard makes it possible to deliver and receive the kickboards where no station is available.
The kickboards can be borrowed and returned only in the designated stations, and upon reservation, the moving station goes around in places where there are no stations.
Also, the e-kickboard that is suitable for Jeju's road conditions are under development by adding smart power, locking device, location tracking by using GPS, and IoT module with remaining battery display with the help of Korea's best developers. The new kickboard will be commercialized in July.
EV Pass is running a pilot service by using the eight base stations and the movable station. It is highly confident that e-kickboard will become the new trend of Jeju tourism.
Jeju's policy to preserve the environment is becoming mandatory, and the e-kickboard can be a new solution in the Jeju tourism market. The beautiful landscape of Jeju can be appreciated in a more comfortable and faster way, and it is a better means of transportation than cars in the tourism aspect because it can enter roads where no cars are allowed.
E-kickboard is expected to draw interest from the Millenials who like to enjoy everything they do. The potential of Macurator has been recognized, and was given the privilege to enter Jeju Innovation Growth Center to foster its business further.
