Gemalto’s Cinterion M2M module and Machine Identification Module (MIM) are embedded in the smart bike lock to transmit location data and operate the lock remotely. Mobike’s IoT-based bike-share solution allows users to conveniently locate the nearest bikes in real time at their exact location by using a Mobike app.
This is particularly important as, unlike other bike sharing services, such IoT-based solutions can also allow the Mobike platform to smartly monitor the health status of each bike, manage hot spots, and distribute its fleet of bikes based on user demand.
“Innovation has put us in the leading position and made us the largest smart bike-sharing service provider in China and the world. Our next milestone is to launch our IoT-based solution in more countries worldwide, and provide a convenient service to commuters and contribute to a healthier lifestyle,” said Joe Xia, co-founder and CTO of Mobike.
