Smart Bike

The aim of this project was to design a future E-Bike or Smart Bike model that uses modern technologies to enhance traditional bicycle apparatus.

Project Description

The Smart Bike prototype has a Bluetooth lock, smart security alarm, and a digital indicator/ lighting system. Each feature of the Smart Bike adopts the use of microcontrollers, namely the Arduino UNO and Particle Photon models. The Bluetooth lock can be locked or unlocked using a password and a Bluetooth connection to a paired device. The smart security alarm will alert the owner of a potential bike theft via E-mail if the vibration sensor in the saddle is disrupted. The digital indicator/ lighting system replaces the traditional method of hand-signals by the use of buttons on the handlebars to flash indicator signals on the LED matrix at the rear of the bike.
