Smart Lock & Dock - An intelligent and safe bike stand to park or rent public bikes

This solution reduces street congestion thanks to an intelligent bike rack that allows private bikes to be parked on the street with dock type security that locks the bike frame. The system can also be used as an ordinary bike stand without subscribing, by locking your bike with your own lock. Additionally, cities can also use the intelligent bike stand to provide bike-sharing services to its citizens. Highly versatile, Smart Lock & Dock offers a smart and hybrid solution to rethink and improve the use of public space and urban mobility.
