Android-Powered Bicycle Has A Built-In Display And Fingerprint Scanner
The advanced bike can even project its own laser-guided bike lane markings and connect to the AT&T wireless network
Chinese technology company LeEco has revealed it’s Super Bike, a new connected bicycle that offers a vast range of advanced features. As part of the smart riding system, a waterproof device with a 4-inch display is fitted to the bike, with an interface tailored to each individual user. It runs Android software and is connected to AT&T’s cellular network. The embedded device’s home screen enables riders to view a navigation mode and set goals using time or distance targets. A cloud connected smartphone app lets users share their travels, and there is also a push-to-talk intercom feature, FM radio, and a media player for MP3s.
The LeEco Super Bike offers improved safety for cyclists with a headlight, tail-light, handlebar mounted side lights, turn signal indicators, a horn, hydraulic disc brakes, and integrated side laser markers for creating a personal visible bike lane.
For security, the bike features an alarm that is triggered by movement, a smart lock, location tracker, fingerprint scanner, and an electronic parking brake on the rear disc. Additional sensors offered by the LeEco Super Bike include a heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyroscope, temperature and humidity sensors, and compass capability.
Danny Bowman, Chief Revenue Officer at LeEco, said in a press release:
“LeEco was founded on the vision of a connected world, elevated by a powerful ecosystem of robust technologies and experiences. The LeEco Super Bike is the perfect example of how we are unifying different technologies into a single device that will give individuals a unique, seamless experience.”
The LeEco Super Bike was recently on show at CTIA Super Mobility 2016 in Las Vegas, with visitors able to check out the connected bicycle at the AT&T booth.
