Electric Bicycle Uses Rider’s Smartphone As Its Brain
App connects to your bike to create fitness programs and map out the safest routes.
Velo is an urban mobility company developing an electric bike that uses iPhone and Android smartphones as the “brain” of the bicycle.
Using the Velo app, riders are able to customize the gear ratios and levels of assistance, sense objects ahead to avoid collision, map out bike friendly routes and connect with others via social media. In the fitness mode, for example, the app will coordinate with the gear train to simulate climbs, descents and flats regardless of the actual terrain.
The project is simultaneously developing models for the consumer and bike share market.
