Actev MotorsTM, creators of smart, electric vehicles for families, have unveiled the Arrow Smart-Kart, the first smart, electric go-kart for kids.
The Arrow Smart-Kart, sized for kids five to nine years old, can be easily configured to match each driver’s skill level. Arrow combines the excitement of a real driving experience with the confidence of parental supervision via the Arrow mobile app. The Arrow app also lets kids monitor stats such as total driving time, total distance and maximum speed.
The app connects to the Smart-Kart via WiFi and equips parents with several safety features:
Adjustable maximum speed limit (up to 12 mph)
Collision avoidance automatically stops Arrow if an obstacle is detected
Emergency stop button
Geo-fencing prevents the driver from going outside a parent-defined geographic boundary
Inactivity timer alerts the parent if Arrow is motionless for a selectable time period
In the coming months, a growing list of accessories will become available for the Arrow Smart-Kart, including custom body kits, drifting wheel rings, a Formula-1 inspired steering wheel, distance-sensing ‘smart cones’, laser tag sensors and gaming apps.
