Gemalto and Mobike announced extending their partnership in secure internet connection for Mobike’s fleet of bikes. Gemalto’s Cinterion M2M module and Machine Identification Module (MIM) are embedded in the smart bike lock to transmit location data and operate the lock remotely. As Gemalto’s modules are pre-certified with all major network operators worldwide, this collaboration allows Mobike to launch the service worldwide faster and more easily, and other connected services can be added in the future.
Smart solution fuel the booming bike-sharing economy
Mobike’s IoT based bike-share solution allows users to conveniently locate the nearest bikes in real time at their exact location by using a Mobike app. This is particularly important as, unlike other bike sharing services, such IoT-based solutions can also allow the Mobike platform to smartly monitor the health status of each bike, manage hot spots, and distribute its fleet of bikes based on user demand for better safety, high operation efficiency, and meeting unmet “last mile” urban mobility needs.
