Introduction[edit | edit source]

Many cities have integrated Bike sharing solution. This system is very helpful to simplify access to bike and then increase urban mobility using bicycle. But this solution is very expensive with more than 2000€/bike/year. It’s not possible for small city. The problem is then to develop a low cost system. FabMob (http://lafabriquedesmobilites.fr/en , http://wiki.lafabriquedesmobilites.fr and http://communs.lafabriquedesmobilites.fr ) start working on this problem and propose :

  • To recycle old bicycle or even used bicycle; This activity can be done by a NGO,
  • To develop a connected locker open source. Several connected lockers already exist but they are also expensive and not fully adapted to bike sharing.

The business case proposed is to focus on Connected Locker open source for bike sharing. Like Arduino for example, open source can be very useful to develop more quickly, to share and mutualise between cities, to reduce barriers for new players and also to create new business models based on open resources.
