The SoBi Social Bicycle system is a bike sharing service currently in development that will integrate authorization, tracking, and security systems with individual bikes. Because of this, the bikes require no additional infrastructure – resulting in a platform that can be deployed on the city-level at one-third the cost of existing bike-sharing services. SoBi bikes are accessed via text message or mobile app, using a pincode system to lock/unlock the bike and track usage time. Because the hardware incorporates GPS, the mobile application can track data like nearby available bicycles, individual travel habits, fitness metrics, and can calculate the user’s reduced environmental impact.
