This thesis project was carried out in collaboration with TO.TEM , a start-up that designs electric vehicles suitable for urban micro-mobility. In particular, the subject of this project is an electric KickScooter called LYNX, which aims to make the use of such vehicles safer thanks to the presence of three wheels, a large footrest and an anti-collision system based on artificial intelligence. Nowadays, electric scooters are becoming more and more popular in cities as an excellent means of green transport for short journeys. The objective of this thesis is to create a dynamic model of the vehicle in a Virtual Simulation environment, in this case Simscape Multibody. The first part of the paper focuses on the explanation of how the individual subsystems, that make up the vehicle, are realised. The second part describes the measurement chain and the types of experimental tests that were carried out on a prototype. Finally, in the last part, the model is calibrated on the basis of the experimental data acquired and then used to evaluate the benefits of introducing new components or changing certain parameters.
