Why Your Electric Scooter's Buzzer Goes Off Near Another Scooter

If you've ever been riding your electric scooter and suddenly heard the buzzer going off as you approach another scooter, it can be quite alarming. Luckily, it's a common phenomenon with a straightforward explanation. The primary reason for this occurrence is due to electromagnetic interference (EMI). EMI is caused when two devices operating in the same electromagnetic space have overlapping signals, which can interfere with each other's operations. Electric scooters release electromagnetic radiation through their motors and control systems, and this radiation can be picked up by nearby scootersElectric scooters release electromagnetic radiation through their motors and control systems, and this radiation can be picked up by nearby scooters , triggering their alarms. They are particularly susceptible to it due to their small size and enclosed wiring. Most electric scooters have EMI filters and protection, but their effectiveness varies depending on the quality of the scooter. Manufacturers may choose to use lower-grade components to save on production costs, which can result in decreased effectiveness of the EMI filters. To minimize the likelihood of experiencing this issue, avoid purchasing cheap scooters of questionable quality, and be cautious when approaching other scooters while riding to reduce interference. Additionally, check the owner's manual for any potential solutions or precautions.
