AirBie Smart Lock – Sharing Economy

Believing in the potential of the Sharing Economy, AirBie Smart Lock develops solutions to enable people to share everything. Share your apartments, your car, your bike, your solar panels; anything becomes a resource by  being available on demand. We believe that the solution to the Climate Change challenge is to unlock the potential of the Sharing Economy.

AirBie is developing a Smart Bike Lock for bike sharing application using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and LoRaWAN technologies.  The lock is equipped with a GPS tracker and with a solar panel to recharge the battery.

 

Via the AirBie mobile app, the user can find available bikes located in the area, and rent a bike for a short journey. Additionally, the mobile app integrates the blockchain-based open identity system uPort and the digital ID of the city of Zug. Payments are processed via the crypto-currency Ether and a deposit smart contract.
