Mobike, a smart bike sharing service, plans to use IoT solutions from AT&T and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., to support its station-free smart bikes in the US, the company said.
AT&T´s 4G LTE connectivity combined with Qualcomm Technologies´ LTE IoT modems and Mobike´s smartphone app will let users easily locate, unlock, and securely pay for the nearest Mobike. At the end of their ride, users will be able to return the bike to a designated “Mobike Preferred Location” or any regular bike parking area.
Mobike is the world´s first and largest smart bike-sharing company. Its mission is to bring more bikes to more cities, using its innovative technology to make cycling the most convenient and environmentally friendly transport choice for urban residents. Using specially designed bikes equipped with GPS and proprietary smart-lock technology, Mobike enables users of its smartphone app to find a bike near them, reserve and unlock it, all using their smartphones. After reaching their destination, the user parks the bike by the roadside and locks it, automatically making the bike available to the next rider.
