CASE3: KIPANDONext Generation Bike Sharing Solution

Kipando increases the availability of shared bicycles with a solution that consists of three components: a smartphone app, a smart bike lock and an online management platform.

The smart bike locks are mounted on standard bicycles, are accessed either with a smartphone app using Bluetooth Low Energy or phoneless with a keypad. It provides best-in-class autonomy with a rechargeable battery and solar energy harvesting, so no for  swapping batteries.

Zenso was electronic and firmware partner in the whole design chain; starting from idea to feasibility followed by design and finally production.
